My "Oh Shit" Moment

Riding a moped with a cute boy isn't as romantic as Lizzie McGuire makes it out to be.

In Asia, almost everyone drives a moped to get around. One morning, the moped I was using in Thailand wouldn’t start. My boyfriend at the time decided to drive me around on his moped, but my intuition was freaking out the entire time. 

We crashed the moped into the grass (at least it wasn’t off the face of the mountain), and my foot hit a pole, ripping my big toenail off and breaking all of my toes.  

And to top it off, the ambulance got a flat tire while we were on the way to the hospital! 

If you find yourself in a situation like mine, you best have World Nomads travel insurance.

lesson learned

  • Buy travel insurance if you're traveling internationally
  • If you're riding a moped, wear close-toed shoes
  • Don't trust a cute boy to drive you around!
