      Mighty strange. When I go away on Vacation, my Passport and Travel Documents is stuck to me like glue wherever I go. Strange indeed.

      I do not normally leave my passport at home. However, I left an expired UK Passport at home once when I was traveling and I have not found it to this day. I left it in my china cabinet - yeah, I wondered what they have done with it. Identity theft?
