Passports, Customs, and Strip searches

 

A recent post from my Instagram profile (@joerohde) So... Once upon a time, I got caught between Calais, France and Dover, England, without a passport. Long story, involving thieves, a spur-of-the-moment road trip, inattentive douane, and a hovercraft. In any case, I was finally allowed into Great Britain after a long grilling and a huge fine joyously levied onto the French Customs Office. However, my new passport was issued from the embassy in London, and was out of style with those issued in the US. The weirdness of my passport, my dissolute appearance in the photo, and my unusual travel patterns led to a decade of "random" detentions, and at least three full-on strip searches. So watch your stuff when checking out of the hotel.
