Travel Insurance Claims - True Stories Just some of the weird and wonderful things that happen to World Nomads travellers while on the road


THAILAND | Thursday, 10 February 2005 | Views [3731]

After the tsunami hit Khao Lak, the British FCO and local agencies were evacuating all foreign nationals in the area, due to the complete devastation. We were evacuated out of the area by truck to Takuapa, and then north to Bangkok as advised. My girlfriend and I were physically uninjured, though in shock. Most of our personal effects were lost in the wave. We had no plans to leave Thailand until this event, having visas for six months. We had no prior warning of the wave striking the area, and like most others were caught unawares.
