It was long overdue. Just recently, I’d been thinking how lucky I’ve been that this had never happened to me. Years of travelling, ten years of living in London. Once, I lost my laptop in Copenhagen, but it was returned to me a couple of weeks later. I’d never been robbed or pickpocketed. Until today.
It happened on the Tramvia 28. While I was paying my fare, there was a lot of pushing and shoving, and someone swiped all the cash right out of my purse. I lost about €200. Nothing else, mind, my bank cards are still there. No point reporting it to the police, I wouldn’t get it back, and we’d just be wasting half a day. I’d probably learn some useful new vocab down the police station, and we all know I’m pretty obsessed with that, but not THAT obsessed.
Besides this unfortunate incident, Sofia and I have had a great day. Beautiful sunshine, lots of photos and a delicious lunch of soup, seafood and a chocolate mousse to die for. And I sure wish I’d paid for said lunch when I still had my cash, rather than Sofia!!!
I’d love to know – where and when was your “first time”? Spill, people…. 😉
