From Bangkok to Brighton by tuk tuk! - check it out!

Posted by somtam2000 on 23/5/2006 at 18:10 admin

We've just added a new story to the site about two young English women who are driving a bright pink tuk tuk from Bangkok to Brighton raising money for mental health care in the UK.

They're leaving Bangkok this Sunday so if you're in town, get in touch wioth them to cheer them on -- Travelfish is helping them out with sponsorship but they're also activly looking for further donations -- please give our story a read and donate if it tickles your fancy.

You can read the full story here: Call me Ting Tong - Tuk to the Road Charity ride.

Thanks

I got up to read on the BBC that the Tukathon is underway -- they left from the British Embassy in Bangkok on Sunday.

First stop is Ayutthaya, then Khao Yai, Phimai, Nong Khai, Vientiane, Vang Vieng, Luang Prabang, Udomxai, Luang Nam Tha and Muang Sing before they pass out of Travelfish range into China.

So, if you happen to come across Ting Tong the pink tuk tuk in any of those places, please be sure to say hello!

You can see a good pic of them before kick-off here, and you can read more about their trip here.

We've been advised by the "tukathoners" that they're arriving in Brighton today after some 12,000 miles by tuk tuk!

You can read more about their trip here.
