We had a backpack stolen on the train from Rome to Florence, and unfortunately it had my laptop and camera in it.
We had taken pics on our phones, but lost a lot that were on the camera. The laptop thankfully, was password protected, but I still spent a lot of time when we got to Florence changing a lot of passwords.
We had the backpack in the overhead storage bin, directly over top of our seats. We were in the last two seats on the train car.
Someone apparently stood behind our seats, reached up and grab the backpack – while we were looking out the window enjoying the beautiful scenery.
Next time, backpack will stay in our laps the whole time, or at our feet. Rookie mistake, and will be more vigilant next time.
