Roadside Assistance Plan

The travel to Davao on my birthday last May 2 was definitely an adventure for all of us. It was our first long travel as a family. It took us 6 hours to reach our destination and it was worth all the risk and excitement. Risk in the sense that it was only me, my wife and our two kids traveling without any other companion to help us in case an engine problem might occur. But I have our van fully checked a week before our travel. But it’s still wise to include a roadside assistance plan in a long travel like what we did.

A friend of our traveled to a mountainous area to attend a Church’s thanksgiving. But along the way, they met an accident when their car’s axle broke. They have to wait for almost 4 hours before they were able to find help. That thing reminded me again and again to always plan ahead, get everything ready and functional especially with our van. Thanks be to God that our travel went smoothly and that we all enjoyed it. We are planning to go travel again 3 months from now.
