If you can't recover, revisit

As mentioned earlier, I lost 200+ photos of Rome due to a corrupted memory card. I turned to 3 persons for advice:

1. The IT guru suggested using a data recovery software to recover the photos.

2. The wise man said since I had the views in my memory, I shouldn't insist on having photos of them.

3. The dumb guy couldn't offer any real solution except for revisiting all those places and retaking the photos.

The words of wisdom were too "deep" for me, so I downloaded a data recovery software, hoping to extract photos from the dead card. Unsuccessful, unfortunately.

So, the dumb guy's advice didn't seem so dumb any more. I eventually revisited the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Palatino and Capitol hills. Now I have the photos to prove that I've been there.
