Happy New Year!
As I was planning my trips for 2017, I realized my passport expires in November... Oh boy... Time to get this renewed ASAP. Why? because most countries won't let you in if you don't have at least 6 months on your passport before it expires. So this is a reminder for everyone to check their passports!
And as we speak of passports, for those of you in the following states: Kentucky, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Washington - your driver's licences will not be valid to fly domestically in 2018 as they do not comply with the federal Real ID Act. What does that mean? you will need to use your passport to fly domestically as well. You can get a passport card or a book.
So if you don't have a passport, now is the time to apply.
Now where are we going to next?
