How Not To Lose Your Passport

As sent to me by Ginny Harrod, a recognized expert at not losing her passport...a fact she gleefully reminded me approximately every five minutes between Dulles and Heathrow...which was fine...except she was seated ten rows ahead of me...on the opposite side of the plane.


Ok. Here's the steps for keeping your passport and not losing it.


1. Hold it very tightly. Do not let go of it. EVER. You may notice some discoloration in your fingers. That is to reassure you that you are doing a REALLY good job of keeping track of your passport.

2. Show it to your travel leader approximately every 5 minutes. If you don't have a travel leader, make a friend in the guy sitting next to you. If he's rather obese and has two seats for himself, and you're afraid he might eat you, turn to the granny on your other side. She can't hear you, but it's good moral support.

3. Continue steps 1 and 2, until you get to the turnstone thingys where they ask to see your passport. At this time, let the nice lady at customs pry it out of your fingers. When she gives it back, put it deep into a bag that you are carrying, find your travel leader and give it to him, or continue to hold onto it until you get home. As long as it's not out of your hands, you'll never lose it. I promise. If you do, I'm sure you can get another one somewhere. There will just be TWO of you after that. But no worries...They'll catch that person soon enough.
