Have been test driving the idea of not shaving for the duration of the travels - less to pack, less to do, less inconvenience.
Is that just a polite way of saying lazy? Maybe.
The only doubt I have is with border control - my passport and visas are beardless - opinions on-line are divided as to whether it will be a problem. We'll see. The worst case scenario is that I would have to shave to prove I am me but the photos in passports are supposed to last for 10 years. Who looks like their passport photo anyway? If I really looked like my passport photo I would clearly be too unwell to travel.
The photo, btw, was taken by hand; just holding the camera out in front of me. And, just to calm Margaret down, I should point out that I never have my glasses down my nose. That was just done to mess around.
