Before I left Spain, I mailed a lot of stuff back home to save myself some trouble. It was kinda expensive too. I mailed myself my books, some clothes, shoes, and magazines, ect...... I paid a lot of money. About as much it would probably cost to just take another luggage on the plane. I didn't realize that at the time. I do now. Sometimes we have to learn the hard way.
Big Effin' mistake. They stole half of my stuff. My Diesel shoes, my knee high boots, my favorite shampoo, my Spanish grammar books that I really treasured. Other books I really loved. They even went so far as to take half of the stuff out of one of my boxes and stuff it with someone else's stuff. In one of my boxes I found a box of knives, baby clothes and candles. WTF?????
I am so so so so pissed. I worked so hard to walk all around town to find a post office that was open, I paid them a lot of money and waited. And not only are the boxes clearly thrown around, but they are missing stuff that I really wanted back. I spent about 200 Euros. I should have saved that money or paid the airlines.
To be honest, I don't remember how many boxes I sent out. I think that I sent out 3- 4 boxes. I am not sure which. I received 3 today. I am hoping that I get one more. I may have sent 4. I really want my Diesel shoes and boots back. I swear its like they knew exactly was I wanted the most out of all the stuff and stole it.
And I was so proud of myself. 99% of the people I knew in Barcelona got robbed. And I was telling people that I never got robbed the whole year I was there. Boy was I was wrong. I got jacked at the very last minute.
If you ever EVER have to travel to a foreign country, learn from me. Do NOT mail anything precious home unless you really have to. I mean, I took the stuff that I wanted the most in my suitcase. I am not a complete idiot. But I still would like to have some of the stuff that I lost back. Gosh, I feel like an idiot.
