We head to the quiet town of Menton on the Italian border.

It is a very pretty town with lots of back alleys lined in lemon trees.

Come join us as we experience blue water, sea breezes, and world class pick pockets in this town by the sea.

Some of the lessons learned

I want to know how they could draw money off the cards without a pins
I want to know exactly where they did it.
They were swiped at the same place 40 times and then they bought 3 train tickets

So the bank is doing an investigation so I am not sure they will release the details until they have all the info

Another great post. We also experienced an overcrowded and uncomfortable train ride from Monte Carlo to Nice. There was a lot of moving around by a few people, makes me wonder if any of that included knuckle heads like you encountered. Money can be replaced, but most importantly glad the ladies weren't hurt!

So, gentlemen, is there another better option than the trains?

We will ride the train again...
Plan to upload next section today sometime where we explore another option for transportation
I will say the local trains require an individual to have a lot of situational awareness (lesson learned)
Public transportation is available, very reasonable, but not necessarily stress free.
