Superstition is for chumps. Or so we thought when we decided to leave on Friday the 13th. After 2 years of planning, what could go wrong?
In preparation of our trip to the Netherlands we took our mini truck to the south of Thailand for a 9 day tour of the area. We visited friends in Koh Lanta, explored the west coast, camped in Laem Son, almost destroyed our car near Chumphon and broke down in elephant country.
Saturday, the 19th of November we set out to drive to the Cambodian border, camp a few nights in the Khao Soi Dao wildlife sanctuary and get back to BKK the following Monday. Not everything went exactly as planned.
Our copy of “Auto Repair for Dummies” arrived this morning. We ordered it through Amazon, since we both don’t know much (or anything at all) about car repair.
