Happy Tour 2014 - an epic bike journey from Sweden to Thailand.
The adventure started on the 29th of March
In order to raise money for Barnhem Muang Mai, a group of young Swedes decided to walk from Bangkok to Phuket. Calle Wollgard was the leader of a group of four people who made it all the way.
This 560 mile adventure, dubbed Happy Walk, was a complete success - Happy Walk raised more than 1,000,000 baht!
Now in 2014, Calle Wollgard and three other friends of his have decided to do something literally amazing. They will bike from Sweden to Phuket, a journey spanning 18 countries and 10,000 miles. The moniker has changed to Happy Tour but the goal is the same; to raise as much money as possible for the children.
On their website, www.happytour.se, you can find out much more about the guys, the route, the planning and how to support them in their endeavor. And yes, of course you will get daily on-the-road updates on just about everything from the guys themselves!
Calle, Fredrik, Christofer and Tomi, words can neither express how grateful we are for what you are about to do, nor express how fantastic it is going to be to follow your adventures.
