Henley and Partners have released their passport strength analysis and, being a travel fanatic and blogger, it made sense to post their link here. Much to mu surprise the US passport is NOT the most powerful passport in the world (it’s still #1 in my heart) but comes in at a rank of #4. LeadingContinue reading “How powerful is your passport?”

Perks of Living International – Tailors

So, admittedly there are some pretty awful things about not being home in the United States. My friends and family are all back there and I miss the hell out of them.
