One of the many benefits since the advent of the Internet is the ease with which we can now process our administrative tasks, such as passport renewals. Gone are the days of a long drive to your nearest passport center, armed with reams of paperwork, to stand in a long queue to be seen, followed by another long wait for your new passport to arrive. Of course, the physical visit is still an option in most cases, and remains a necessity in some. However these days, you can renew your passport, or at least start your application, directly online. This is good news if you live abroad!
We first got to know Hettie when she found us on Google searching for advice for Australians in France. What we didn’t know at the time is that she is also a published author. We asked her about her latest book “From Boat to Baguette” and her desire to create a new ‘vie francaise’ in northern France.
