Good morning from Saigon, City of millions of people and just as many motorbikes. Yesterday afternoon I fell victim to the seedy underbelly of Saigon. While standing in what I thought was a safe spot and using my phone a stinking low life snatched my phone from my hand and rode off across 6 lanes of traffic. Despite being protected from 2 sides by a wall and a large electrical services box I was still within a stretched arm reach. He was so quick! This is why I always take out travel insurance. After an hour filling out forms at the police station for insurance purposes I went and bought a cheap phone. My iPhone X to be replaced once back in Australia.
Yes, be especially careful of using your phone outside. I thought I was being careful but needed to use it to call a grab bike. In the blink of an eye it was gone. And 10 days of pics etc. plus a few months since I’d done a full back up so lost all those pics etc as well. Be careful.
