    You will be Out of Europe at that time .

    You will have to join the Non European Q when travelling to the rest of Europe.

    Just looked at one of ours and it is a very dark blue, but almost black looking. Depending on what light you look at.

    My last UK one was very dark blue with the nice hard cover. My current one will no expire until 2013 but I will willingly pay for a new one!

    Being a non EU country we won't have a need for an EU point of immigration just a UK one and the rest of the world. It will be you joining the Non European Q if you want to visit here. As for us Brits, we will travel around the EU through the short queues while you stand in those massive EU lines. Of course, we will still be a European country.

Hot temperatures in F - 80. 90 etc, this is reenforced by time in Florida - our A/C is set in F, but cold 0 - 15 in Celsius (usually in UK for cold temp). How weird is that ? And of course, distance is in miles not kilometres.
    I was at school in the 60/70s and I guess that is how we did it then - a bit of a mixture, but my science degree in the 70s should have got me into metric. When it comes to , shillings and pence, I do remember them but as I was about 12 when we went decimal, I am also comfortable with that.
    You sound exactly like me, similar in age I reckon as well

    Prety sure the visa waiver is not done on a euro basis. Rather it ncludes teh United Kingdom. It is open to some non EU countries already such as Chile.
    The EU is currently considering cancelling the USA visa waiver over some clerical error. Not sure if that has been sorted out.If tehy do you can garentee Trump will hit the EU back harder. It's what he does.

    All EU passport holders , including me , will have an EU Q.

    All other passport holders INCLUDING UK Passports holders will be in a different Q

    I have an Irish Passport & so I will be in the EU Q Note I am entitled to have a UK passport one as well

    I would have sworn my old passport was dark blue but just come across my very first one (1967) and it is definitely black when compared to black or navy leather (handbags).

    Amazing what you find when clearing out cupboards! Just come across all our old passports - goodness knows why we kept them! A couple are really black and the rest are dark navy blue. I guess it depends on the year and whether the dyes change with age.
