A Short Ride in the Jungle

Written by

Riding an ageing, pink Honda Cub dubbed The Pink Panther sourced and pimped by Digby and Glenn at Explore Indochina in Hoi An, Ants Bolingbroke-Kent rattled down the Ho Chi Minh Trail last year, taking pictures along the way.


Bumping and clunking several thousand miles through Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia, she had some near misses with cluster bombs, early monsoon mud and overly-lascivious individuals, but lived to write a book about the tale.


With the A Short Ride in the Jungle: The Ho Chi Minh Trail by Motorcycle picking up accolades in the UK, it’s time we gave this tale of our past some attention.
