A couple of weeks ago, I was at happy hour with some friends. We were talking about losing stuff, and one of my girlfriends said she would rather lose her wallet than her cell phone. As someone who had both items stolen a couple of years ago, I was like, seriously? But then I thought about it, and I guess I can see her point. Your credit cards may be a pain to cancel and replace, but at least you can get new ones. If you don’t backup that data on your phone it is gone forever! Then another friend chimed in and said she was traveling in Morocco once, and she lost her suitcase. As in, gone forever. Whoa. And then (I guess we were playing top that story?) a third friend said that she lost all of her makeup and toiletries while backpacking in Europe.
All of these scenarios sound seriously horrible to me. Losing your wallet or phone would certainly be difficult any time. But I can’t imagine being on a trip, especially in a foreign country, and losing either all of your clothes and toiletries. Crazy!
So of course, Readers, I have to play this game with you guys!
