the worst thing of all  
my digital camera got stolen while i was out in london last night :(((

300 photos, the camera, the 512mb memory card. stolen from my bag in the blink of an eye. i am devastated. especially over losing the photos. all my photos of scotland, edinburgh castle that i took for my dad, the tour group i was with, york, oxford, stratford...

cameras can be replaced. insurance will cover most of the costs. but memories can't ever be recreated.


the location of where i had to check in to get on the coach to ireland today was wrong. i missed my coach but luckily i can get on another one tonight, that will get me into dublin at 6:30am tomorrow morning. my irish tour starts at 8am.

it's just one thing after another, it seems.

time to try and find another camera to use for the rest of my trip.

Oh no :( Good thing you got yourself an insurance though! These things happen during trips. There's always something that goes wrong...

Oh, my darling. Listen: I'll try and take some photos of Stratford for you, I know it's not the same but at least you'll have some, taken at roughly the same time of year and all?

Could you get photos from other people on the tour?

oh darling... i'm so sorry! i agree, losing the pictures is the worst thing. and you are too good to have some nasty person stealing from you, ugh, it pisses me off.

if it makes you feel better (?) once when my brother was in amsterdam he got mugged & had all of his money stolen and his camera and he had to come back to the states early because he had no more money. :(

people can be so rotten.

Theives are wankers :/
But have no fear, if you still don't have a camera by the time you pass through Wales again, I work in a camera shop!
Oh & I got your text message. I work Sundays but try & find out where exactly in Wales you will be, & where in Bristol & I will do my best to come & meet you!

That *so* sucks!!

Reminds me of a time in Seattle when we went to Snoqualmie Falls and we were out jumping on the rocks and the camera I had decided to jump out of my pocket and into the water where it rapidly floated and sank somewhere in cold, frigid water. Not quite the same thing...it was my own stupidity as to how I lost it....

:::big hugs:::

But you DO have the memories, and you KNOW that you've seen all of these wonderful places. And no one can steal that away from you.

Oh, that is awful!!!! :(

Sorry I haven't replied to any of your emails or posts -- this week has been so busy with post-wedding stuff. But I've LOVED reading about all of your adventures and am so glad you got the chance to go on this trip.

I love you!

I'm so so so sorry this happened to you! You're very smart for buying insurance, I never would've thought of that. However, I know it's frustrating because you can't get your memories back. I'm so sorry! *hugs*
