Forgot my passport in Italy while in Germany. How do I ship it?

I never use UPS so this is probably a dumb question, but I'm having a pretty stressful time right now and I'm not sure where else to turn.This morning I left a small town outside Florence for Munich and when the German police boarded our bus to check passports, I realized I had forgotten my passport in that town. I got through using a picture of my passport and my USA driver's license, but I obviously still need my passport. I'll be in Munich for a few days, so rather than bus back to Florence, deal with police again, then bus back, I'd rather just ship it with UPS to Munich. I'm in contact with the hostel owner who is trying to help me ship it up, but I have no idea how to do this. So first, is shipping it a terrible idea? The alternative is about 16-20 hours of non stop travel. Second, has anyone been in this kind of situation, and if so how did you approach shipping it?Thanks for your help :)Edit: Just realized the title doesn't make a ton of sense. It should read 'Forgot my passport in Italy while traveling to Germany*' via /r/travel
