Into BKK on 10 July midnight arrival, taxi to Sathon area hotel, three days of BKK air left my lungs ripping sore. Bussed (Not biked) out west to Kanchanaburi for a week to visit a Thai family and a dip in the River Kwai. Rode the Death Railway for 2+ hours in a wooden seat only to learn the return train was cancelled due to the loss of air pressure in the breaking system - Hired a local to drive me back to Kanchanaburi.
Rail ticket: 100 Baht; hired driver for return: 600 Baht (Farang fare)

Shoulda, coulda, oughta rented a bike in the first place, but.....didn't.
Actually I did rent a motorbike, one of those 120cc thingies but I only use them in soi's not the real roads.

This was a business trip for me in preparation for my eventual permenent move to Thailand so my holiday spirits weren't really there and didn't feel I had "time off" as it were. Being only a 12 day trip didn't provide me with enough time to come and hang in CNX and ride the North and that was really a remiss. And so I look forward to the day I shall be in TH permanently and have all the time I want in CNX. Targeting November '05 for the move.

Great to hear from you mate.
Good to know that
1. your making a move to the great sabai of Cnx
2. still contributuing trip reports - well done. you dont ride but still make a trip report, better than those who do ride but dont make a report.

I look forward to seeing you in Cnx again, most likely the Sax Bar or The Kafe (as usual.)
