I go a bit mad using the panorama feature on the iPhone so have accumulated many panoramas on my bike travels. Believe it or not here is a cut down selection along with the Thai province or place in which they’re shot:
Spent an overnight break out of Bangkok in Khao Yai to to check out a few new camping gadgets and of course have a ride!
The Petromax Firebox is a great little stove for camp cooking from twigs and leaves laying around; compact, cheap and fun! The Canon G5X star mode was fun to learn can see how produce for point and shoot, but will certainly get better results the next time.
Lastly the North Face Talus 3 tent courtesy of United points was quick to set up and pack up and roomy and a very useful loft storage rack.
Back next weekend…
December in Thailand is wonderfully cool and I took a couple of weeks and headed off up to Chiang Rai. Once in Chiang Rai I worked and hung out for a a week. For a cheap five star hotel check out the Le Meridian, a bargain at around US$100 a night and first class establishment. For those who think Thailand is baking hot all the time if you venture up north at this time of year be prepared to wrap up warm. I usually set off riding before 6am and was poorly equipment for the cold! But come late morning it has warmed up to ride with minimal layers.
This video and photos chart the trip.
Thanks to Shimona Kee for letting me use her song ‘Rainy Day. Check out Shimona here
Timelapse of setting up camp in Khao Yai with Tahn for a overnight break from Bangkok. If you look in the background some mysterious rodent passes by a few times. I have now got my camp dinner sorted, third time with this recipe. Mr Penrose will attest to its yumminess as will Tahn and Aey.
Inspired to do some better night sky timelapse…
Thanks to The Waterboys for the music.

Always a pleasure to go for a ride with Rob, this time just a quick dash up Khao Yai, a couple of hours north east of Bangkok.
Elephants in Khao Yai are quite common but not so often in middle of day, she was a big girl too. Always amazing that once they step into the jungle they just disappear!
