Tomorrow I'm Swiss :-)

I'm popping over to Dublin for a week and I just realised my Irish passport has expired! So I have to use my Swiss passport, every time I describe myself as Swiss, I always expect someone to jump up behind me and shout "Oh, no he isn't"... It will be interesting to see the reaction when a man with a very typical Irish family name presents the little red book!!!

Jim - Carry a cuckoo clock under one arm, wear a cowbell and a tyrolean hat and insist your name is Heidi. If that doesn't convince everyone, drop hints about having a secret bank account.No problem!

Happy to help. I did remember one more Swiss stereotype - you could yodel your way through passport control.

Jim, Great to see that you were able to "sneak" into Ireland. Have a pint (or two) for me!!! Sláinte!

Jim, Tá Fáilte romhat (I think that's correct?)
