Saturday 4th February 2012 – Pran Buri to Ban Huai Kriap

Pran Buri to Ban Huai Kriap 106 miles

The forecast for today was thundery showers, but I managed to avoid them, they were just in front of me as for nearly all morning the roads were a bit wet and knowing how quickly things dry out it must have been just ahead of me. Very humid today found it pretty hard going, mind you there was a bit of a headwind also!

Got a puncture today, but at least it gave me an excuse to stop and drip everywhere with sweat! You don’t realise how much your sweating when your riding along, it’s only when you stop, it’s like turning a tap on then!

Still struggling to find hotels unless I want to stay in a 5 star resort! That’s why I’ve ended up at the motorway services, it’s not really a hotel it’s just a place where people can rest for an hour or two and also get a shower, but the owners let me stop for the night, he told me he’s also got a guesthouse about 2km back which I must have just rode past! Said I was struggling to spot places to stay!
