They shared unusual, exciting travel stories and tips on planning trips off the beaten track, and practical advice from professionals on insurance and repatriation coverage. 

Our guests were:

  • Apoorva Prasad, an entrepreneur, passionate climber, snowboarder and adventure traveller who founded The Outdoor Journal, a content-driven booking platform and magazine for adventure junkies.
  • Patrick Schomaker, director of sales and marketing at Luxembourg Air Rescue, the leading aeromedical provider in Europe. LAR teams have flown repatriation missions all over the world. 

Prasad said his path towards adventure travel started when he saw Mt Everest for the first time, at age 4. He highlighted a recent offroading trip to Namibia, which included an episode getting stuck on the beach as the tide rolled in, and breathtaking video footage of cliff diving in Oman.

Schomaker gave some breathtaking figures (from UK insurers) on medical costs incurred abroad. The examples included a one night stay in an intensive care unit in the US (€5,700), a traveller who caught dengue fever in Indonesia (€45,000) and a jet-ski accident in Turkey that required surgery (€140,000).
