Shattered arm in Argentina

I fell off a roof in Argentina and shattered my arm. Waking up in a local hospital was terrifying. I can’t imagine navigating that experience without World Nomads.

Shark bite in Bali

Whilst surfing in Bali, Indonesia I was attacked by a two metre Bull Shark. The bite to my right forearm had severed five tendons and most of the muscle. World Nomads travel insurance covered the costs of my medical bills up front.
