Thank you, my old passport, for being my travel companion for 10 years. Now it is time to get a new one, not because I want to, but because I must. You have expired, bereft of bureaucratic life, you have seized to be, and I can no longer travel with you.
Your wings have been clipped, and you will be replaced with a new younger version, with blank pages, for creating new travel memories. You and I have been on some epic adventures, you have the stamps to prove it. I am sorry that the last year of your validity have been spent in a drawer in the hallway, waiting in vain for trips that never came in 2020 and 2021. Thank you my Norwegian (Norge/Noreg) passport for accompanying me for the last 10 years, you will be missed.
