I have had a couple of experiences (not camino related) but to which I solemnly swear had to do with "DIVINE" intervention. These were not mere dreams or premonitions but actually pulled from death or at least serious harm kind of experiences. I BELEIVE!!!!!!!!!!
This may be a silly question, but is it better to do the exchange before you leave or exchange in Spain?
Also for those who you the Schwab card, if you exchange before you leave are the fees reimbursed as well?
The point is it probably would not have been "a caucasian old man", it would probably have just been "an old man" and we would be left to assume he was caucasian. Unfortunately, this is how the world works.
Unfortunately, this is not the first time something like this has happened. Over the years I have heard this story often. This is why we are often told to never leave your valuables unattended and to be sure to report these types of incidences. "Let's be careful out there."
I was a couple of weeks ahead of you. My first and I have been obsessed ever since. Planned to go in 2020 but we all know how that turned out. All things going well, I plan to be back next May/June. Buen Camino!!!
