Legal Paperwork day.

One of the challenges of being a Dutch national born in South Africa and living in the UK is that you might as well be living on Mars when you enter the embassy. Try and explain that you applied for certain documents in Cape Town others while living in Belgium and even more when your children were born in the UK!

I keep on wondering if the world is getting smaller or larger now that we have the information age and all information needs to be captured….

But Ilse is the paper genius and at each point when we were asked some obscure question Ilse would deliver before the sentence was done…You could see this was a battle of the admin giants!

But after a number of hours the process is under way. New Passports, New ID cards and English translations are all in process.

It amazes me that there is still spontaneous travel left in the world!!
