My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

Day 05: Phitsanulok - Petchabun

"Sometimes it's the journey that teaches you a lot about your destination. - Drake

(Phu Tubberk at an altitude of 1,560 m)

Day 05: 27 Nov 2017 (Monday)
Route: Phitsanulok - Route 12 - Phu Tubberk - Khao Kho - Petchabun
Distance: 265 km
Hotel: Smile@me Place Hotel, Petchabun

Breakfast roti telur near the Pakistan Mosque. Rode the twisting roads of Route 12 then to Phu Tubberk. Had seafood fried rice lunch at Phu Tubberk Mountain Restaurant. Rode the twisties from Phu Tubberk to Khao Kho. This was our 2nd biking trip to Phu Tubberk and Khao Kho this year. Hotels in both Phu Tubberk and Khao Kho quoted above Baht1000/night because of peak season, so decided to ride to Petchabun and stayed the night there.

It was already dark when we reached Petchabun. Went to Aminah Restaurant to have dinner but the Restaurant was already closed. Fortunately the owner was willing to prepare seafood fried rice for seven hungry bikers.

Checked in Smile@me Place Hotel in Petchabun for Baht350/night.
