Today I went and renewed my US Passport at the Passport Fair. I had previously received a passport when I traveled to Holland with my soccer team when I was 16. I had since not renewed it. I had been wanting to renew it for a long time. It is good for 10 years and is a good idea to have one on hand. You never know when you might want to take a trip. I have no trips planned but I will be going to Europe sometime in the future. Point Radio
