Travel Insurance… if you’re lucky, you’ll never need it. We traveled for a very long time without any travel insurance because we were young and healthy, you know. Until the day comes where you can’t stand another hour without taking painkillers for a terrible toothache, as it was for me. In the heart of the South American Colombia, on a dodge night bus, my tooth was just killing me and I would have paid our entire travel budget for someone to take away the pain, or the tooth! Without health insurance, we paid the full price for a root canal treatment and I was very lucky Colombia happens to be a dentist heaven. A toothache is a minor discomfort, thinking about the horrible pain a broken leg might give me. This was a turning point for us and we realized we had been seeing our self as the untouchable heroes we definitely weren’t. (Photo by Marcelo Leal on Unsplash)
