From Germany to Thailand by bicycle!

Finally Simon arrived in Thailand after 325 days on the road, through 19 countries and 16,216 kilometers. Deep respect for such an achievement and persistence not giving up and going all the way.

Simon started in February 2016 from Germany not only to fulfill his own dream but also towards a charitable reason, helping children in need. In cooperation with www.thaicare.de and www.raintree-foundation.org Simon set up a webpage http://ecovelo.eu/eco-project/thailand.html and a Facebook page called EcoVelo with the possibilities to read about his adventurous journey and see beautiful pictures he took on his way. But also with the dedication towards the children, people are able to donate and support Simon’s cause.

We have been so glad to welcome Simon together with the kids from the children’s home in Mae Na Chorn to show our appreciation.

If you want to know more about Simon’s trip please read his blog on his page http://ecovelo.eu/eco-project/thailand.html and if you still want to contribute towards the children you can help to donate here http://ecovelo.eu/donate.html
