“It’s a funny thing coming home. Nothing changes. Everything looks the same, feels the same, even smells the same. You realize what’s changed, is you.”– Eric Roth, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Screenplay
Hello and welcome to GTP! If you’re someone who likes to plan trips from your bed on a Sunday morning, keep foreign weather destinations on your weather app or watch travel shows about Cape Town – then this site is for you!
Starting a travel blog during a pandemic seems like a bad idea, however, we’re so passionate about the places we’ve been and absolutely love looking back on our past travels. Because we work full time, we also appreciate how precious those 15 days of a leave a year can be. So we hope to share our good and bad lessons to help you travel better, with a particular focus on the Mother City, our hometown.
While Got the Passports is a relatively new site, we have had the privilege of working with a number of special local and international travel brands. Our love for art, food, history and architecture keeps us curious and we’re here to share the fun.
Thank you for visiting and – before you head out the door – “Got the Passports?”
Meg & Al-John
Why “Got the Passports”?
While on the highway exiting Venice, Italy AJ asked Meg, “Got the passports?” – she didn’t…*panic*!
Long story short, this crazy moment lead us to start jotting down all our beautiful travel experiences on Got the Passports. Here you’ll find our travel memories, vlogs, wins and fails as we navigate this wide world.
