Weekly Photo Challenge: Water


I’m sure there’s a road here somewhere…

The Great Thailand-Singapore Bike Ride…it’s 1988…some of the lads from Charlie Company, the First Battalion, the Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment take up the challenge to ride from the Malaysia-Thailand border back to their base at Dieppe Barracks, Singapore…why? Because they could…Day 1 of the ride was also Day 1 of the eastern monsoon and from there life became interesting…

Kota Bahru, like most of the region, flooded out but most took it in their stride…

…and after many adventures, the final destination was reached…

The final leg…coming onto the Causeway…

This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge...and an interesting exercise in hearts and minds as we worked our way down the east coast staying on beaches and in small kampongs each night…much as I would have liked to have been riding, someone had to take the photos…plus I didn’t have a bike anyway…and I was just back from six weeks in the States…and it looked like hard work…these really were the good ‘old’ days…
