I am a really cautious person but was recently pickpocketed at a beach in Barcelona. I was having some food and beer alone and was approached by a raucous but friendly Italian male and Spanish female. My weakness? I was on a recent flight from Paris limiting one bag so gave up my hip pouch. I was tired and checked into a beach hostel, not having a locker lock so took my credit card stuff and euros and stuffed it in a rear pocket.

I had a tiny sachel bag I was hand carryying the whole time, and my mistake was to put it down and give my facebook contact on his phone, which wasn't working properly. I should have known this was wrong, the female circled behind me Luckily, my jeans were tight. Weirdly, as I went to pick the satchel up, he "helped" me pick it up with my cheese which he threw in the trash. I should have screamed because it felt immediately as if he took the wallet. Luckily, his expert hands left behind my passport. I cancelled debit card immediately but had a nightmare coming home.

We had just parked our car in the street but we didn't have coins to pay for the parking ticket. We had several cameras, laptops and other valuables with us because we were working as reporters. We took all our bags out of the car and left them all together in the sidewalk. My boyfriend was standing really close to them, carefully watching them, because we knew it wasn't a safe area.

I went to a shop across the street to ask for change. I just took a couple of minutes, if so, and when I came back I saw him frantically looking for one of the bags in the car, thinking we had left it inside by mistake. But, guess what? It had been taken.

He then realised what had happened. It seems that a guy wearing a barcelona football club t-shirt, baseball cap and sunglasses looking back now, it is a pretty obvious tourist dress up! He then asked my boyfriend for directions and, in that same moment, someone else must have slipped from behind the car and grabbed one of the bags.
