My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

Day 2: 4-Nation Ride (Kanchanaburi)


"The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us, but those who win battles we know nothing about..."

(Our choice hotel in Surat Thani)

Date: 12 December 2014 (Friday)
Route: Surat Thani - Kanchanaburi
Distance: 662 km
Hotel: Luxury Hotel

Breakfast of toasts and fried eggs was served at the hotel cafe.

We started the journey with a short briefing and reciting of prayers. It was warm and sunny today with intermittent showers on the way. The journey was uneventful with a few stops for refuelling. We even had time to buy some Petai from one of the roadside stalls on the way.
