Hey guys!!!!!!
Just a little reminder.... Watch your shit!
I was with my family in Prague and feeling way to comfortable because you are in a group. We left our bags with my cousin and her bf to go get every ones drinks at this breakfast place. When we got back to the table my bag was gone and it had my camera and my Aunts!!!!!!!!!!!! :greenguy:
I only blame myself because I should not trust anyone with my bag hehe even family, but it really does suck!

So I am now leaving for Budapest a day early because I am just ready for some Tpunk love and Damnrepoman will be there.

I just wanted you guys to know that you really need to keep an eye on your things at all times. These people are so good and really know what they are doing. I hope this will help keep some of you on your toes.
On a bright note Prague is a very beautiful city and I really want to come back some day to take some great photos!

T

Did you loose your photos? Or had you already saved them somewhere.

Sorry to hear about you losing your camera T...that kind of thing can really put a damper on your trip. But at least you didn't lose any pictures!!

And good advice as well...Keep your eyes on your stuff at all times. It sucks, but you can't trust people these days!!

Yeah, I've found a good rule of thumb is when you leave your stuff with someone, make sure they know they're watching it for you. It helps reduce your vulnerability, and the pros are watching for inattentive moments... if you make yourself a more difficult target, they'll move on to easier game...
