Default Two weeks and two days

Ok-- Yes I finally got my passport-- just took two weeks and two days to get here. Question-- what do you keep yours in-- to keep it safe and so the pages dont get too bent or messed up ? open for any and all suggestion as to what I should keep my in. Just wish I had some cruise planned that I need it for--but am working on that too
Cheers April

I keep mine (and Queeg's) in a locked roll-top desk. Then the challenge is to remember where I hid the key.

my passport is now 8 years old (new one is on its way thanks to the tip about the price increase here!) and still looks pretty good! I keep it in a leather folder of sorts that i carry in my purse. my passport has seen lots of abuse but is pretty durable...it certainly doesn´t look that old. if i onlöy looked like my passport picture.......hmmmmmm.....

if i know i don´t need my passport, then i keep it in our fireproof safe.

We keep our passports in fireproof safe here at home when we aren't using them. They really still look good as new after 5 years. (course we haven't gotten to use them to often)

Glad to hear that you have yours. I'm sure there will be a reason to use it before to long.

We keep ours in the Bank Safety Box until a week before a trip/cruise. Have added one set pages and now only have about 2 pages left before it is needed to add another set of additional pages. Expires in 2006 so I will have to get more pages upon return in December. Passports do not deteriorate. They are made of very good material.

My current one expires 1/03 so I sent in early and seeing as they cashed the check, I'm assuming it is on the way! First time my picture looks decent. My other two were on the scarey side! They sure do hold up well and I keep mine in a lock box at home.

Used to do the bank routine but got tired of doing the safe deposit routine right before a trip.

Susan will be cruisin with CruiseMates
