Without let or hindrance

5 June, 2009

After a considerable amount of hassle, I have a renewed passport. I am no longer trapped* in Ireland!

The requisite cheesy photo is barely visible under all the holograms. You also get translations into Welsh and Scottish Gaelic, an RFID tag, and a free (but not very comprehensive or accurate**) guide to the birds of Britain.

* Allegedly, I could have travelled to England on just my driving licence, but I didn’t want to try it.

** Avocet, red kite, curlew and merlin. I didn’t think they were all green with pink feet, but who am I to argue with Her Britannic Majesty?
