World Nomads Travel Insurance

If I can just stray off the topic of Phuket for a moment... I did a lot of traveling when I was younger - Africa, India, South America, all over the world from Alaska to Zambia, from Chichicastenango to Ouagadougou. It was an addiction that was somehow cured by a combination of scuba diving, a small island called Utila and finally Thailand. But that's another story! Wherever I did roam, I was sensible enough to have Travel Insurance to cover medical problems (such as my infected leg in Cameroon - I still have the scar) or possible theft of my camera (though I have never had anything stolen while traveling). Peace of mind, that's what insurance is, and it's so cheap! You can take a few risks when traveling, visit some strange places, but it's nice to have someone watching your back!
