    Yes always travel alone but have to say I depend a lot on Google Map especially for the first time to a location after that I tend to remember the next time I have to go. I also depend on people sending me their location.

    People say there’s no free lunch however in Thailand if you have a punctured tire B-Qiuk can repair for you for free.

    Found a screw, yes a fucking screw stuck on my tire and pressure gone down from 230 to 200 kpa. As usual look for the nearest B-Quik.
