Cliche? I was kidnapped in South America

ECUADOR | Wednesday, 7 May 2008 | Views [5084]

I woke up in hospital — but was totally clueless as to how I wound up there. All I remember is enjoying a beer at a restaurant in the middle of the day, and then I draw a blank. What happened in the 24 hours in between that quiet lager and landing in hospital was a mystery, but I knew for sure I was missing $200 in cash, my credit card and camera. It turned out I had been drugged, kidnapped and robbed.

How World Nomads helped

Reimbursed for the camera (maximum claim limit of $500) and camera case. Credit card issue was resolved with bank.
