I got off to an early start so decided to ride the whole journey to Satun today.
I have stayed in both of these cities a couple of times before but have never rode from one to the other so it was some new roads for me to ride today

The temperature soon got up and this was taken in the shade at 2.30 pm, no wonder I could feel the heat on my legs
