I was once told that, if you really look like your passport photo, you need a holiday. ;D

Mine expires in Sep 16.   Australian passports are for 10 years but NZ only last 5 years. I hope to apply for NZ citizenship next year. There have been discussions of changing NZ back to 10 years. I could apply for citizenship next February (5 years residency) but I have already made bookings for France in April/May and it would not look good to apply for citizenship then be out of the country so I will probably wait until am back home next June.
The photo on my current passport is a bit faint and I cannot use the fast gates now in Aust and NZ. The photo does not work. I am often directed to them by officials and have to explain that it will take longer as I will be sent back. However there are customs lines for just Australians and Kiwis in both countries which are generally quite short as most people are using the automatic gates.

Mine expires next year. It's been valid for 10 years, but since then they've changed it so my new one will only be for 5 years.

I have to remember getting the new passport very early in the year, as the queues at the police passport office are horrendeous as summer gets closer!

My passport expires early next year. I told myself there is no need to wait till then to renew. I've had the paperwork printed out for months, and I even have pictures. Now I just have to stop procrastinating.

Hot and tired, thank you. My 3 week long vacation is soon over so a bit blue but.....

I start with full time night shifts for 2 weeks, then back working days, evenings and weekends. I love my work but it is nice to be free, drinking wine in warm summer nights without worries about getting up early the next day!  :laugh:

I'm going back to the US august 30 and I'm staying until September 16. My hubby - yes, we are still together, working on it!! - is going to a conference in Denver and after that he and his coworker is doing work at a lab in Golden. After that is our own week in Colorado!! But what shall we do? I've ordered a book - Lonely Planet - about Colorado and I'm doing intense research on the Internet but I know that the real knowledge is at Bettermost so I'm asking you all, have you got any suggestions??  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Unfortunately no NY....  :'(
