I still have hope that someday my Tilley hat will be returned to me. I lost it on a woods road in Portugal when I was walking Camino Portugues 2014. My prescription sunglasses were in the top of the hat.
This hat has a lot of sentimental value as I had bought it many years ago. I have one which is hemp but it is too warm. I also have a white cotton one which one of my sisters gave me. The lost one is lighter and doesnt need to be removed often.
Shortly after I was away from the woods roads, we found a restaurant where an old man was kind to me when he learned that I lost my hat and glasses. I’ll never forget his sweet face and how helpful he was.
So…if you find it, please leave a message. I will pay a reward.
