I didn't know

Saturday, October 09, 2010

I've been blessed to travel in the past, but I've always gone on my own and made my own itinerary. I have never gone on a fully escorted tour before. I didn't know that even if I pay for my tour in advance, they cannot give me a reservation without an updated passport. Mine expired two years ago.

I had wanted to wait until December when I've dropped some weight to take the passport photo. So, I just went to take my passport photo. It is the world's worst passport photo. I can't do anything about my face, but I'm thinking I'll try styling my hair differently tomorrow and see if that makes a difference. If so, it might be worth the extra $10 to take a better picture. This one doesn't even look focused to me.

However, whether I take a better picture or not, I've got to get it in the mail on Monday. I think I'll do the express processing which they say will take 2-3 weeks. My pastor says they can book the flight for me, but I guess it's just booking a block of seats and I won't personally have a reservation until my passport is updated. I'm going to call the passport agency tomorrow to see if the numbers stay the same; in that case all I'll need for the reservation form is the expiration date.

    I think passport pictures are like driver's license photos; I've never met anyone yet that liked theirs!

    Enjoy your trip!

    I agree with BOBBIENORTHERN, don't worry about the picture. Like driver's licenses, passport pictures are supposed to be really bad!

    It is so exciting that you will be making this trip!

    Just keep your picture and dont look at it and ignore what ever comments are made if someone says anything negative. Believe me your pictue cannot be all that bad. Making the trip has to be more important then the picture. Dont forget to enjoy this great weekend. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
