Later this year I am going to Italy!! I have been planning this trip with my sister ever since we were teenage girls sharing a bedroom together.
The plan was that we would go when my sister turns 50. Well my sister is turning 50 this year in August, so our trip has been booked for September. However instead of the girls trip we always imagined, my husband (who is also turning 50 in December ) and my brother, are coming along as well. My motto is and has always been, the more the merrier, so I really can’t wait, this is going to be such a fun trip.
But here’s the problem, I don’t have a current passport and my prospects for getting a new passport for a while have not looked good. I changed my name after I married my husband and took on my husbands name as many people do, but the marriage certificate we were given on our wedding day does not have a registration number and without that I cannot get my passport. My husband is going to pay a visit to the Births, Deaths and Marriages office and hopefully get a copy of a marriage certificate with an actual registration number on it and maybe then I will be able to finally get my passport and make it to Italy.
Fingers crossed, otherwise it looks like the others will be going without me.
