Maybe I will upload photos not about my daily life but about what/where I cycled in the northern provinces of Thailand;

I wrote on Constantinos and Nongai ligns that I like to go to Mae Hong Son province ;

I went there many times with our pickup and my wife;

and also with the pickup ( without madame ATX whistling.gif ) and the MTBike on it until Chiang Mai ; I have let it in the house of a belgium cyclist friend and continued on the bike for about ten days ..
