That is nearly twice the European average.
If you don’t have a passport (no matter your nationality) go out and get one. They are not more than $20 for US citizens and the process is rather quick and easy. If you can travel outside of the country you live in, take my word for it nothing else you do will open your eyes as much.
Until then, stay tuned to us here at L’avant Poste. I’m working on getting more stories and pictures for you…hmm foreshadowing am I? Perhaps… 😉
