Train Jumping

Riding the slow train with our bikes from the Malay-Thai border north to Phattalung to skip the supposedly dangerous part of southern Thailand that our travel insurance won’t cover us for. No one spoke English and we were the centre of attention but it was all very friendly. Off the tourist route? You bet!
