Exchanging a Passport
When I had to send my passport in last week in order to get a new one, I felt like I was throwing away a journal. I got this one just as I was about to move to Germany; it contains not only all of the stamps from my travel these last years, but also all of the visas with their raised papers and holographic stickers. The passport is one of the last physical documents left in the process of travel and it’s such a shame that it gets destroyed instead of preserved. I’m sad to see it go (and more than that I am a little horrified that ten years have gone by) but am looking forward to filling up a new one!
