As the rain falls on Skiathos ...

The island continues to rock from beneath the rock, with seismic activity. If its not thunder above, its a rumble from down below.

You can actually renew your passport when you have 9 months left and that 9 months is then carried over to your new passport. So if your passport is due to expire before the 27th December 2018 it might be worth you renewing it before the 27th March 2018.

The biggest increase will be when you apply by post so it'll be best to renew online wherever possible.
