It’s difficult to keep up with the regular blog posts! Phew…I need to step my game up. I’m still learning, go easy on me.
So, my passport is about to expire in April 2011. It’s a “Over 3, Under 18” passport that was valid for 5 years. This means I was 16 going on 17 when I got it. Off the top of my head that passport took me to Medjugorje in 2006 with my youth group of the time, Lourdes in 2007 with same group, Lancaster to visit my auntie who was studying there for a year in 2008, my first ‘proper’ holiday to Salou with Mickey summer 2009 and Gran Canaria for two weeks of holiday fun last summer, 2010. All bringing back a little flood of interesting, happy, funny, sunny and sad memories and trips which shaped me in some ways.
I’m not someone who has huge aspirations to travel the world, but I enjoy an adventure when I can get one, and applying for a new passport, this time my first proper “Standard 10 Year” one, as an adult (and paying the 80 Euro myself, worse luck) has got me wondering where the new one – and the next ten years – will take me. Usually the future frightens the living bejaysus out of me- it took me two years to think of a degree to apply for, please don’t ask me what I am going to do after this! But there is something that makes me smile in thinking of the airports and hotels, people and places, fun, laughter and experience that are mine to be pursued after I am equipped with this new little book.
