Today I went to an extraordinary meeting. I met other bloggers from the area which was truly enriching! What I love about networking events is the fact that you meet not only the people you already know (so you can obviously catch up) but also some new faces. I am fan of spontaneity and I can say that today has been full of spontaneous reactions. I popped into some long lost friends and we decided to hang out in the Old Town. Because I had a free afternoon I agreed to stay in the city a little longer. Our visit was documented by my crazy Huawei which surprised me by the quality of the pics. Just take a look.

I was like… WHAT? It was a frigging mistake! I double checked. I thought it was a bad dream. I saw a couple of transactions I hadn’t made. It was clear: someone had been using my credit card!

Ha! I’m sure you have never heard a similar story.
Tonight I’m planning to share with you one of my numerous adventures which happened to me some time back on my trip to Madrid… I would really love to forget what happened the other day (or night, I should say) but then again it comes back to me like a boomerang. This week I have been writing about chargebacks for another fellow blog and I got actually inspired to share my crazy story with the wider audience.
