So... Let's talk about travel insurance.
If you have ever ummed and aahed about whether or not to cough up that little bit extra for comprehensive travel insurance then may I please invite you to view the following little clip, filmed during my recent stay in Mauritius. Don't worry, there are no upsetting images - other than my frightful hair!
Being entirely frank, I'd rather not have had this experience, but it acted as a stark reminder and if it brings any doubters to their senses, then my work here is done!
My heartfelt love and gratitude to the amazing Sarah Archer of Beachcomber Tours, Beachcomber Resorts and Hotels with a special mention to the team at Shandrani Beachcomber Resort & Spa. Clinique du Nord Medical Centre exceeded expectations - I was looked after like royalty. Perhaps Beachcomber's ninth hotel on the island?
I can't reference my colleagues at Travel Counsellors and Holidaysplease without welling up – you know who you are. Sorry, thank you and sorry. Did I say sorry?
It was emotional.
Travel insurance - never be without it, guys.
