This is my 2nd and is a replacement someone stole my old one on the train from Paris to Amsterdam on the Thayls Train (If you get it, WATCH YOUR LUGGAGE, amateur move by me, I found out the hard way,) My old LV backpack was ravaged, lost a couple of sentimental things and my passport (which was LONG) and was trapped in Amsterdam (thank god for my amazing friends there) eternally grateful for my travel insurance as I got a new one and everything in it. I’m much more careful now. Scarred, but more aware.
