On the road
We originally planned to drive from Hanoi to Helsinki. Vietnam has now banned right hand drive cars so we are shipping to Thailand. So no more "Hanoi to Helsinki", it's now Bondi to the Baltic. The cars will ship from Sydney and Fremantle in March, to the Thai port of Laem Chabang, near Bangkok. We expect to set out on the road in the last week of April, aiming to cross into China before the 3 day holiday for International Labour Day, 1-3 May. The vintage cars do 50 km/hr and we would prefer to limit our travel to about 200 km per day, so the 1300km of this leg could take 7 days, with minimal sightseeing.
