Day 114: Hunting for hot springs

Though we planned to leave today, events conspired to keep us in town, heh. It started with the b’fast. Yesterday we had a smoothie in a nice cafe and the owner was appreciative of our cycling efforts and gave us… Continue Reading →

Day 113: Got turned around for the first time

We heard of a few routes going out of Kyaukme. One of it was heading to a town that was closed to foreigners. We talked to a local trekking guide and learned that the town was closed to avoid foreigners… Continue Reading →

Day 112: Burmese traffic is a pain in the arse

We were up at 7 and Chris felt better and ready for a ride. So after a b’fast, we packed up and hit the road. A motorbike taxi guy told us we’d not be able to go past Lashio, but… Continue Reading →

Day 111: Friendly neighborhood people

I got up to a mild drizzle and headed for the meager b’fast of toast and eggs. The rain was seemingly going away but threatened to be back. When Chris showed up, he didn’t seem to be fighting fit, guess… Continue Reading →

Day 110: Rained out in Pyin Oo Lwin

I woke up to gloomy skies and as we had b’fast the rain started and became a torrent within the hour. Bummer as we realized it was a storm blowing from the Andaman sea and looks like will last a… Continue Reading →

Day 109: A bit of chill from the rain and altitude

I was up at 6:30 and was looking forward to some food. Usually free b’fast is too simple and probably just toast and coffee passes for one. But this place was fancier and gave us some fruits and a fried… Continue Reading →

Day 108: Quiet day in Mandalay

The train was bumpy. Surprising how hey put up so many bumps on a track. Every time the train passed some unknown bump, the carriage would bounce up and down for the next 15 seconds. Felt like the suspension wasn’t… Continue Reading →

Day 107: Long day that didn’t end

Just before I knocked off, I realized the workers in the plantation might show up in the night to bleed the trees. We had heard that from Melanie and didn’t take that info to heart. I guessed we’d be ok… Continue Reading →

Day 106: Riding thro Buddhist festivals

I didn’t feel like waking up early today, since I paid for the bed, I just wanted to laze in as long as I could. But at 8 I decided to leave and catch the cooler morning for the ride…. Continue Reading →

Day 105: Meeting awesome Burmese

We were debating weather to stay the day in Hpa An or to move on and finally decided we’d stay put and just check out the town. In the morning, we walked up to a nearby shop for some b’fast…. Continue Reading →

Day 104: You had me at Mengalaba

Our day started at 4 am. The people at the restaurant were up and running and I forced myself more shut eye and at 6 am, I decided to get up and pack my stuff. (In case you are wondering,… Continue Reading →

Day 103a: Immigration red tape at Mae Sot

Ok, this is for the people who’d like to overland into Burma via Mae Sot / Myawaddy with their bicycles. It was easy to pass through Thai immigration, they didn’t care about us having bicycles as long as we didn’t… Continue Reading →

Day 103: You may know it as Myanmar, but to me it will always be Burma

Today was going to be an adventure, a bureaucratic one at the least, but hey, we are trying out something no one probably has done before. I slept on and off as the lights were on all night. And every… Continue Reading →

Day 102: Bussing it to Mae Sot

We had our 8:40 but at the other end of town, so we were up early and bid farewell to Nuch and hit the road at 7:30. It was a 15 km ride and the weather was cloudy and pleasant…. Continue Reading →

Day 101: Last minute preparations before hitting the road

In the morning we spent a little time scouring the Internet again until we plateau’d with the info we can find. There is probably more info in languages we don’t understand, but I got to a point where I figured… Continue Reading →
