My first passport expires this year. I had my photos taken today and my forms are ready to mail for my renewal. I really hate to part with my current passport even for the length of time it will take to process the renewal. I'll get my original back and will cherish it's beginnings forever.
I never thought I'd own a passport, let alone need a second one.
I've been to Portugal, France (twice), Netherlands, Mexico and Canada (not so local any more).
Another step closer.
