A passport for travelling as well as for “identity” 😊 πŸšž

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧑

My passport has expired and I need to renew my passport. Before the corona- situation I could just travel to the Norwegian Consulate. This is more and less a 10 minutes train trip from my home. But because of the corona- situation I needed to travel to Madrid and the Norwegian Embassy there instead. A bit longer traintrip. Unfortunately the Norwegian Embassy just has open office hours for visitors and renewing of passport on Wednesdays now,- also because of the corona- situation. And, unfortunately, to get a Norwegian passport out of the country borders now at days cost a bit more too, and again, – because of the corona- situation.

In Norway we need to renew our passport every 10. year. So it’s actually 10 year since I got a new passport now at days.

So my trip to Madrid was just because I needed to renew my passport. And for me it ment actually a bit more then just get a new passport. It’s 10 years since I got my last passport, and at that time I had meet “the Bump”. Some of you had read about him, some not. But it is the man that in his own way just dropped my off in Spain, he did never showed up. That was actually a good thing, but I was so “down in my life” at that time that I didn’t recognize that it was probably the best that could have happened for me to be dropped off in Spain, – because he was not a very good man, and he was absolutely not good for me.

My old passport has in it’s own way always reminded me about him and the life experiences I got during the years I was together with him. He was with me when I renewed my passport 10 years ago, when I took the photo, the fingerprint and did sing my new passport. As well as he did picked me up when I was picking up my passport in the police station in Norway 2 weeks after. I still remember what he told me. He told me that I needed this new passport because we was going to travel a lot together. Something that actually was true, but if I had knew what kind of travelling I was going to explore and experience together with him I have …. to be honest….I don’t know what I have done at that time. But probably not choose to “travel”,- but I didn’t knew at that time. I thought it should be some great memories, not memories I don’t want to remember.

2019

My passport ,from 2001 to 2011, contains 10 years with a lots of trips and travels together with my children. A lots of good and great memories together, a lots of love, laughter and fun, joy and happiness πŸ₯°.

My passport, from 2011 to 2021, contains different travels and trips the 2, 5 first years, and then I have more and less just use my passport as an identity card in different situations here in Spain. But the trips and travels my passport contains are in general not with contains of good memories. I want to be finish remembering it. It’s actually not worth to remember at all, and I don’t think it’s worth to write about either. I don’t want to use to much of my energies on that, I have already done that, use to much negative energy on negative memories and experiences.

A new passport- a new start in so many ways- for me πŸ₯°.

So for me,- to get a new passport now, that will last until 2031 felt incredibly good. It felt a way like to get a new, fresh start on my travels in life, both mentally and physically 😊. It felt like get a new 10 years period in my life I can fill up with a lots of great memories in both mentally as well as physically travels in my life πŸ’š.

I felt a kind of relief to get rid of my old passport, to be honest,- and it felt so important for me to do this alone. To get my new passport alone. To just feel that I was renewing my possibility for nice, great and good travels, trips and experiences in my life again 😊. My new passport it’s own way represents a kind of a new start for me 😊.

I got my first passport when I was 16 years old. And after that I have had my own passport. I did loose one of my passport in 2001, but got a new one. At that time I was also soon going through a divorce so in its own way, that passport too in it’s own way represented a kind of a new start, a new epoch for new travels in my life together with my children, both mentally and physically 😊.

My photo in my first passport, June 1989 😊. I’m 16 years old in this photo 😊.

I’m starting on a new travel and trip in my life now at days too. A travel I’m going to do more without my children then together with them, at least less physically then before. In their own way they still will be a part of my travels in life, like I will be a part of their, but not in the same way at it has been 😊.

I’m still me, I’m still Laila, even when I have got a new passport. My identity is not changing at the same time as I’m probably going to go through some changes 😊.

A passport is a identification card, and I have used my last passport very much as a identification card since I moved to Spain, more than anytime in my life. Special during this corona- situation. And I’m looking forward to pick up my next passport in around 2 weeks. Then I don’t need to travel to Madrid, I can just travel to The Norwegian Consulate 10 minutes with the train 😊.

Anyway,- I think you maybe now understand why the trip to Madrid was so important for me, special to do on my own as well 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧑 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧑

See you soon 😊

Some of my passport photos- or actually the biggest photo is more and less like I’m going to look at my new passport- but without any smile 😊. And the one in black and white- well maybe just the colours tells you from what period in my life that one is? (It’s from 2011 to 2021)

I was 16 years old when I got my first passport 😊. And yesterday I renewed my last passport, and it’s feels like I got a new, fresh start on different travels, trips, experiences and adventures in my life πŸ’š. I’m looking forward for 10 new years with my new passport, and I choose to believe that the next 10 years will contains a lots of good memories and great experiences in my life 🧑. My new passport represents a kind of a new start for me in my life πŸ₯°.
