She had arrived at the gas station in a van and was buying protective rain jackets. 

Mini mart employee Pornpailin Seesot contacted the police and with the help of JS 100 radio station and immigration the van was located in Krabi.

The tourist had realized later that she had forgotten her holiday money but she had no idea where. 

She will be reunited with her cash on Thursday. 

Mrs Paula from Brazil said:  “When I read here, I just got in the hotel. I read the message; I couldn’t believe my eyes. I can’t thank you enough. Thank you, thank you, God bless you very much! You blessed me. You made my whole year very happy and I’m very very grateful for her and her honesty to keep the money. She is really really nice, I can’t thank her enough and with tears in my eyes, please tell her, “Thank you!”
