Ａｄｖｅｎｔｕｒｅ motorbike trip around Southeast Asia - Thailand, Laos and Cambodia
Using very low speed limits this is the easiest way for the Government, to get some money out of their citizens.
Without my licence I lost my job and with it the only reason to stay in a narrow-minded but well-paid country like Germany. The Government lost a taxpayer and I had to make the decision "sozial service or motorcycle trip?" Of course this decision was not hard to make. I can still get my money back from the government later when im old. life is to short to waste it working. The weather in Thailand should also be a lot better than in the the cold weather in expensive Germany. In Thailand are also motorcycles for rent everywhere. I had 1200 € left. That should be enough for a 4 months long journey.
For just 550 euros I found some return flights, parked my bike at the airport, sent my driver's license to the police office and went to South East Asia, to visit Thailand, Laos and Cambodia.
"scams", were jet skis have been repaired with not waterproof glue. As soon as stupid tourists rent them, they fall apart in the water and the tourists have to pay for "their" accident on return. Similar things can happen while renting a motorcycle and scooter, so one has to be carefull.
mini alarm system were my photo equipment including NetBook. All together still 12 kg.
Quickly, I grabbed my stuff and left the bus, looking for a place to the camp. In the light of the street lamps I found something that looked like a small park a few meters further. Perfect. I ignored the gate with a sleeping gatekeeper and disappeared between two palm trees, built up my tent behind them and spent a comfortable night. I was not worried about my valuables my mini alarm system would wake me up. To be continnued on the next page.
