Tour d'Joko: The Mae Hong Song Loop

The journey took four days. 600 kilometers (372 miles) on a little, 115cc Yamaha Spark. I was surprised by many things on the first day. First was the breathtaking views in the crisp, misty heights of Doi Inthanon, the highest point in the Kingdom of Thailand.  I was also surprised by rain; it's been the dry season here for so long, I didn't think to take rain gear.



On day two of the journey, we explored the town of Mae Sariang, where Anthony is living these days. The second leg of the journey was the wettest, but this time I was prepared with waterproofed luggage and ponchos.


I made it to Mae Hong Son, the middle point of the journey and checked out this quirky, little border town... and had the pizza by the lake a friend suggested.
Hope you enjoyed them. More to come.
