This is my brand new passport, which arrived on Thursday (it only took a week, how brilliant is that?) OK, it doesn’t LOOK exciting, but it’s what the passport represents. Because for me, a passport is full of possibility; the chance to travel anywhere I want in the world.
For me, a passport represents total freedom. My last passport had visas from Russia, Vietnam, Australia and New Zealand; it showed I’d entered the US many times. This one is completely blank, every page. Next week I’m off to Norway to see the Northern Lights; in February, Miami; in March, France.
Imagine not being able to get a passport, to have no official identity. Makes you think, doesn’t it?
This little document, apparently so insignificant, is the item I’d save in a fire (apart from our Sky+ box). Have new passport, will travel.
(The new passport cover was a gift from Disney Cruise Line – isn’t it fab?)
