On my 3-month solo trip to Ladakh last winter, I fell face-forward on a sheet of ice. My nose started bleeding along with a ligament tear. As I had no local contacts; I had to wait for an hour at sub-zero temperatures until the locals from the nearby village helped me out. Post that incident; I had to undergo physiotherapy for months. That incident made me more cautious and I make sure that I plan well before heading out for any treks. Now, I always make a point to carry a list of S.O.S. numbers, adequate clothing and trekking equipment in my bag pack.
It is true that I cannot foresee what might happen in my future trips; however, now I have understood that I have to plan for every possibility. Likewise, in life, unforeseen events can occur anytime. So, it is always important to stay prepared for them and I have done my preparation with ICICI Pru iProtect Smart. It secures my family against any unforeseen events that might occur to me with a life cover and also provides me with protection against 34 critical illnesses. Now I can travel worry-free as I have secured myself and my family.
