Our passports expired while we were abroad, which brought up the age old question (for those old enough to have had multiple passports): What should I do with my expired passport? It’s a hard to answer question. There is a lot of emotion tied into an expired passport. Here is my solution.
There are very few circumstances where I’m comfortable without my passport. I get squeamish when I handed it over to the Chinese embassy in Thailand to get a visa to walk the Great Wall and again in Laos to get a visa for neighboring Vietnam. So it was with some trepidation that we had to get them renewed from Norway.
