Pedal Pushers: German siblings cycling the world just arrived in Thailand

Two German siblings who are riding their bikes around the world have arrived in Thailand after taking their journey to Turkey, Australia, and Malaysia.

The duo, Nathanael Arndt, 28, and Johanna Arndt, 26, entered Thailand from Malaysia in the southern province of Narathiwat. The siblings made a stop in Yala province to rest, had a meal amid police security, and visited a bike shop, according to Thai News Bureau.

They said local residents had been very friendly and welcoming since they arrived.

They will soon begin their journey across the length of the country to Chiang Rai, where they will cross the border into Myanmar. It will take them approximately three weeks to reach the northern province.

They will end their global journey in Nepal. It will have taken them six months in total to complete their mission.
