Day 56 – Kep to Ang Ta Saom

Feeling very tired after our longest day yet, so will keep it short. We have been following the coast since Surat Thani, which is over 1000kms, so it was a bit of a shock to the body to head inland. It was much hotter all day, so we had lengthy breaks in the middle of the day. Luckily we had a good tailwind so we made good progress and everyone was keen to make the most of it. 

At our lunch stop at a roadside vendor the boys were a big hit as per usual. 

At the 65kms mark we decided to start looking for a guesthouse. We had passed a few in the previous 5kms so thought it wouldn’t be long. One kilometer later we spotted an impressive looking building, but it had closed down. At the 72km mark we called into a busy car wash and was told that there was not one for another 16kms. Rather than backtracking we pushed on and arrived at our destination at 6pm with the sunseting.

  1. Certainly a long testing day. Strong winds and big swells coming for salmon fishermen. Leave Denmark tomorrow for Albany then Perth. Martin starts on renovations.

    1. It was a good day overall. Very exciting to come home to a new kitchen and bathroom. Like moving to a new home without all moving hassles.
