With the baby boomers beginning to retire and travel the world there will be a big boom in overseas travel over the next 10-15 years. It's always nice to plan trips months or even years in advance, but sometime you just want to take off and go at the drop of a hat. Well you can do that if you travel within the borders of the US, but what about when you want to go to Europe or Australia. What if your best friends or a family member calls you and says we're going to London next week, would you like to come with us? You need a passport and you need it in a hurry. You can't afford to wait months to get it. You'll miss out on that fun trip.
