The Notting Hill Carnival

We hadn’t planned to hit the Notting Hill Carnival because, not living in the capital, we don’t really tend to follow events happening up there.

Pictures Of Passports Past

Images from mine and my wife’s past passports, featuring visa stamps and horrific passport photos of the two of us in our respective youths. Not as horrific as the photos in our current passports, though, so there is that. The image on the front of the old British passport in black.
