Today is the day when we will finish our cycling trip from Göteborg to Bangkok. Our plan is to start from Banglen at 10.00 and arrive at Wat Arun in Bangkok at 15.00. Our original plan was to finish in front of the Wat Phrakaew and Grand Palace, but due to the large demonstrations going on there we have decided to move the endpoint to Wat Arun.
If you are interested in seing us while still on tour then come to Wat Arun. We will be there around 3 PM today (Saturday Nov. 30).
After finishing cycling we will go to a dinner for friends and family and since it will be late we won’t cycle to Wej’s house tonight. The plan is to stay at a hotel tonight and cycle to her home tomorrow morning.
Wej writes on a thai cycling forum and there she has posted an open invitation to anyone who is interested in cycling with us this last day. About 30 cyclists from Bangkok have accepted the invitation and will meet us very soon here in Banglen.
We will update photos from today’s ride as we go and it will be possible to follow us almost live.
