Did You Know…?

Have you checked your passport lately for the expiration date?  Renewing a passport can take up to six weeks or more.   I learned this when I was heading for Barbados last spring and forgot to see if my passport was still valid.   To my dismay, it had expired a month earlier and I was leaving in just a few days.  After much panicking, I found based in mid-town Manhattan.   Luckily they were able to renew my passport in a hurry  — but for a hefty price.   So if you’re leaving the country for your honeymoon, be sure to take a look at your passport NOW.
