Mikael and Ratanawadee Hemniti Winther @ Riding the Bike

Speaking about his passion for motorcycle riding in Thailand – and elsewhere – at an afternoon get-together arranged by Scandinavian Society Siam, Mikael and Ratanawadee Hemniti Winther, the Danish Ambassador to Thailand and his wife arrived on motorbike.

While pictures of His Excellency on his bike are not unusual in the media, seeing Mrs. Rattanawadee riding behind him is rather unique.

The afternoon was short-named “Riding the Bike” and arranged by Flemming Winther Nielsen, board member of the Scandinavian Society Siam in charge of the Heritage Section. A short introduction and welcome was given by Robert Kronberg, Chairman of the SSS.

Notice the helmets. Much of the discussion during the afternoon was about that: The promotion of helmet usage as a way to save more lives. This is what Mrs. Winther is working with as the Thailand Representative of Asia Injury Prevention Foundation.

The event ended with a special treat in the restaurant of Admiral’s Pub, where Khun Na had created 25 magnificent Biker Burgers for the event. You don’t need to be a biker to appreciate that – and if you think it looks good in this photo, then you may want to know that you can also order this on any other day of the year!
