My new passport arrived this afternoon, and I have to say it looks much the same as the old one. One thing that’s quite amusing is that I spent ages agonising over whether to put “Dr” as my title. On the one hand it would be cool, but on the other hand it might attract unwarranted atention, especially if I happened to have a medical doctor as a travelling companion.

So I decided against it, and sent off the renewal form. So what’s funny? Well new style passports don’t have any space for title anyway!! (although perhaps they squidge it in somewhere?)
