Like the feel of the wind at your back? Or looking for a cheap and easy way to get around? Renting a moped, scooter or motorbike to take in the sights of overseas countries sounds like a lot of fun and for many travellers it is. But for some this is where their holiday can become a nightmare.

Follow the first-hand experiences of three Australian travellers who were trekking near Everest Base Camp when a massive earthquake struck Nepal in April 2015. In one of the proudest moments in our 30 year history, Cover-More was the only travel insurance company in the world to send an assistance team and an aircraft into Kathmandu to bring travellers home. This is a story of adventure, rescue and the kindness of strangers.

After a few days of Bali’s famously crowded markets and one blurry night at the Sky Garden, I was ready to leave behind our epic villa and party vibe of Kuta and immerse myself in the mountain tranquillity of Ubud. A charming place with the perfect amount of enticing restaurants, quiet retreats and hippy hangouts. Ubud is everything you have heard about and more. And of course, a great place to get a massage or partake in a yoga class.

Before we visited Clam Lake, Wisconsin, we had been told about the annual ice fishing contest, a Saturday in January when everyone in the town (37 residents) and a few people from neighbouring towns all head out onto the lake, drop a line and have a good time. The ice fishing contest also acts as a fundraiser for the local ATV club with prizes, raffles, a bar and BBQ – like a county fair on ice.
