They Didn't Get my Wallet

In all my years of travel, I have never been ripped off, never even felt the threat of being ripped off but tonight, my first night in Paris, my purse was sliced open by a knife while we were packed in the metro going to dinner.

Luckily, I held on to my bag very tightly all the time I was traveling and the thief did not get the chance to rip off anything in my purse.  Still, it was a real Longchamp, the fold-able, perfect travel bag. I am shocked but not really surprised.  At age 55, I have lost my travel virginity.

Don't let that scoundrel's actions spoil your Paris get-away. Now you MUST go to St-Ouen to shop for a new purse!

Thanks D. Had a GREAT day today. I sewed up my bag this AM at the hotel and used it again!
