We're off on vacation again...YEAH! My dad rolled in last night and we've driven over to the Basque region near Bilbao for a bit more than a week. The countryside through the drive was stunning, Spain really is an amazing country and the drive was fine, if squishy.
The extremely professional and efficient pick-pocket who made off with my Dad's wallet in the bathroom at a one of those highway rest stops.
There was a very scary moment when we weren't sure if he'd gotten the car keys and the car too, which would have REALLY been a drag rather than a remarkable pain in the *ss.
The cops eventually came, the cards are easily cancelled, the biggest immediate hassle is the lack of a driver's license, so we had to wait around to fill in some forms so that we had something to show any subsequent cops.
They were very nice. They didn't make us go to downtown Lleida to fill in the forms, they apologized many times and were generally quite civilised.
Poopy, but not major damage. Fairly major irritation for my Dad, but we're all here and well, and that's what counts. The guy was most impressive.
