I am very sad to report that I have just had my wallet stolen in Copenhagen. I was on board a busy local bus with some friends and had just sat down when I realised my bag had been unzipped and my wallet had gone. It was 16.30.
Cards, cash, driving licence are some of the things that have been taken. But what I’m most disappointed about is that Copenhagen is supposed to be a low crime city. And yet in just a couple of months, my husband has had his bike stolen from outside his work and now I have been targeted. We have never experienced personal crime in London – a capital city where we would expect it.
The bus driver made an announcement about my wallet and as we got off, a woman offered me 200 kroner. That’s the Copenhagen I love. What a pity that when it comes to crime, this capital is like too many others.
