handbags and passports

ok one for the ladies. i know we need to keep our passports on us at all times but how have girls managed to go out at night and carry their passport. a handbag or something makes sense but i'm so scared i'll get drunk and lose it. have a tendency to leave stuff behind when i drink <img src="" alt="Smiler" width="15" height="15"><!--graemlin::)-->and if we get dressed up to go out its a little difficult to attach to the body. <BR><BR>what have others done.

    How about one of those small purse clasp bags that attach to your wrist. They are perfect size for a passport, phone and money/lip gloss etc. I used that when I was in the USA last year to carry my passport and essentials around in, came in handy, especially in Vegas… even if I let go of it, it was still attached to my wrist!

    That’s exactly what I use, and it works great. Sometimes I’ll clip it onto the belt loop of my pants as well if I’m afraid it will fling off while I’m dancing, lol. Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    And I don’t bring my passport out with me at night, only my driver’s license and a copy of my passport. This is just my own personal prefenece, and it’s never been an issue.
