I also received my Thai visa good for two entries. This means my next step is to take this path before shipping over to Nepal:
While I've been doing nothing I worked out this:
- Away for 7 months. 109 of those days were riding.
- Travelled 17884km by bike
- Taken 5 flights
- Visited 6 countries
- Crossed 8 borders
- Used 1028L of petrol at an average of 17.3km/L
- Spent 72c per km travelled
I've also walked enough that I no longer need the blood pressure medication I was on. I haven't had it since before I went to Vietnam but now that I'm back it seems to be in the normal range. that's a saving of $40AU/month! But that $40 can go towards some new shoes, I've already worn out the pair I bought in Malaysia.
Here's where I've been in the 6 months I've been in this region:
If I can be bothered I'll go back through my videos from Laos and edit them. And here are the only two photos that I've taken since I've been back:
|Brand new Lao Airlines A320. It was mostly empty, so it might only last as long as the Singapore route did when it was announced (2 weeks).|
|Finally decent pizza! From the Swedish pizza and bake house in Vientiane. It's moved from where all the guidebooks and maps tell you, it's now a block closer to where the night markets are.|
