I've been overseas before - I was stationed in Korea for a year and on the return trip spent about 4 hours on Okinawa (I don't know how much that qualifies as being "in" Okinawa, but I'm counting it).
However, that all took place while I was in the military and I had my military ID to get me from place to place. Now that I've been out of law school for a while, I figured it's probably time to get myself a passport on the off chance my wife and I decide to do some traveling.
I was impressed at how quickly I got through the process at the Post Office. The picture's not going to be attractive, but it was done and I was out of the office in less than 15 minutes - there was almost no line at the downtown post office - totally worth the trip.
Now, it's going to be at least a month before I get the passport back, and I don't expect I'll be taking a vacation this year, but, who knows? The summer could show some promise... Maybe I can take my wife on a long weekend trip to Macchu Picchu, or a week in London, or a quick Caribbean Cruise... I REALLY need a vacation.
