One night in Bangkok…or two or three!

Posted by Cool Your Jets IV on May 29, 2011

We left Siem Reap several hours ago and just this minute checked into our Hotel here in Bangkok!

We’re staying at the Shanghai Mansion bang in the middle of China Town – not too far from the backpacker district but far enough away not to see to many of them!

We’re here for an initial three or so days bef0re jumping on a train to go climbing in Krabi.

Til then, enjoy this you tube video of pure 80’s cheese!

Cambodia, off-road!

Posted by Cool Your Jets IV on May 25, 2011

Ride completed

Yesterday Angkor Wat, today blasting through the Cambodian countryside aboard 2 Honda XR250’s, courtesy of Dancing Roads Cambodia!

We’ve had a great day-out (more photos here), our guide Chea was superb, initially we struggled to keep up though once we got going we were fine (though from time to time he would remind us who was boss!) The countryside is beautiful – passing through sleepy villages surrounded by palm trees, children with huge smiles greeting us as we travelled through, riding single track with paddy fields either side, that and a two foot drop which isn’t too taxing at 5mph, try doing it at 20mph!

We were very lucky as  the weather has been incredibly hot recently and 15 minutes in, it started to rain – this kept the temperatures down and also meant that the dust was kept to a minimum – we were able to slide the bikes around with ease. There were a number of jumps through out the day and as we grew more confident we were attacking them with gusto – even managing to get some airtime (no doubt when we look back on this in the future we’ll be embarrassed by our attempts) much to the amusement of many villagers who would come out to watch us ‘grab some air!’

All in all, we rode 127km through stunning countryside, we’re shattered!
