Got my wallet stolen by a sketchy Romanian beggar in Montmartre because I was stupid and didn't pay attention to my bag.
At least I did some impressive stuff, like file a complaint in French at the local police department and dealt with my French bank card in French.
This is how I know I have completed my quest in France - I've actually had to use the useless vocabulary from high school lessons in places like the grocery store, the bakery, the train station, and now the emergency room! (January), the bank!, the POLICE DEPARTMENT!
18 days till I'm outta here.
