Getting a new passport is exciting. It's a world of possibilities. Like getting a brand new coloring book and box of fresh crayons as a little kid. It's unlikely I'll ever fill up one of my passports before it expires, but all those blank pages make you feel like the world is there for the conquering. Plus, getting a new passport makes me feel like an international spy. When spies open their briefcases, they're always toting around loads of currency from around the world, a couple guns, maybe some old dog tags and a bunch of new passports. The only thing I own from their travel kit is a new passport, so it comes with a bit of excitement.
