Day 29: Nakhon Si Thammarat to Sichon

Today has definitely been the prettiest day of the whole trip so far. It was a real reflection of what I had imagined cycling in Thailand would be like before we left the UK to begin this adventure. We cycled out of Nakhon Si Thammarat, which seemed to be a nice city. Colourful lanterns stretched above our heads as we cycled away from the hustle and bustle and into an army base, of all places. Although there were guards on the entrance, it was clear to see that all vehicles and bikes were being allowed through. It was beautifully kept, with exquisite portraits of the Thai King adorning the gates to each building within the compound.  Continue reading →

Day 21: Kangar (Malaysia) to Satun (Thailand) 

After a restful nights sleep and a hearty breakfast of three banana sandwiches: one with jam, one with nutella and one with kaya (kaya is a delicious, Malaysian jam made with coconut, eggs and caramel), we were ready for our 77km day, including crossing into Thailand! We left at 0900; the heat and humidity of the day not quite at its peak just yet. Continue reading →

We really enjoyed our time in Taiping. The fact that our hostel, ‘Sojourn Beds & Cafe’ was so comfortable and clean with lovely hosts, meant that we were almost reluctant to leave. Continue reading →

Cycling from Singapore to the UK -Episode One [VIDEO]

Cycling from Singapore to the UK -Episode One [VIDEO]

Here is the first episode from our Singapore to the UK bike trip. After months of saving money and planning, it is a strange feeling to finally be starting the journey. We are both feeling so many different emotions, it is difficult to put them all into words.

SUBSCRIBE TO FOLLOW OUR JOURNEY

We are Adam and Lucia and we are a British couple that have quit our jobs to cycle from Singapore to the UK. We spent 2 years saving for a deposit for a house and decided that life is to short to spend our hard earned money on bricks. Instead, we are planning to spend this money on a life-changing experience and came up with the idea of a long bike trip. We flew to Singapore from the UK and started our return journey by bike on the 9 September 2018, Adam’s 30th birthday. We think the journey will take 18 months but who knows. We will be taking it a day at a time.
