One of the worst scenarios while on holiday is to be told you have to stay in hospital. You may have had a heart attack or worse a severe stroke. Holiday makers hardly ever heed the obvious signs. Situations arise that are difficult to get through, going from extremely distressing to plain straight funny. If you or a friend has had an accident whilst on holiday you will know a bit about the ordeal and upset you go through. Possibly it could have so easily been avoided. The role of a hospital interpreter involves being a go between with the insurance. Not to mention a hand holder and counsellor. The message is loud and clear" make sure you have a good insurance".
Holiday makers in high spirits have difficulty proving to the police that they are "only having a bit of fun" So many cases could have had a tragic ending. Until you find yourself involved in such a situation you cannot imagine the distress. Months of planning and anticipation can be destroyed in moments and you could find yourself "watching the sun go down and the drip go up".
