I had to replace my old passport before I left – it expired in May. In honor of receiving my new one today (I can actually go now!), here’s a look back at my past 10 years of travel.
The passport I sent in was my passport since I was 17. It served me well on many international excursions, as well as those 6 months in San Francisco when I lost my NJ drivers license and put off taking the test to get my CA one. Whenever I took it out I loved flipping through the pages and seeing the visual proof of places I’ve been. The stamps triggered so many memories. Before I sent it in, just in case they didn’t send it back, which I’ve heard happens even though the website tells you they will, I scanned its pages so I would still have access to the memories. (As of the time of posting this, they still have not sent it back, but they say it may come in a separate mailing.)
Here are a few highlights.
