Tips to get ready for Foreign Trip

Get a passport and anything is possible

Just having a new, shiny passport with its 24 blank pages just waiting to be filled is extremely empowering. Carry it around in your purse with you. Use it as your primary form of identification. When that unbelievable deal for a package deal to Paris pops up, or someone asks you to join them in Timbuktu next week, say yes. Belles with passports often surprise themselves. Now plan your heart out.

  • We can use exceptor except for after all, any, every, no, anything/body/ one/where, everything/body/one/where, nothing/body/one/where, and whole— that is to say, words which suggest the idea of a total.
    In other cases we usually use except for, but not except.
    Compare:
      He ate everything on his plate except (for) the beans.
      He ate the whole meal except (for) the beans.
      He ate the meal except for the beans.
      (NOT . . . except the beans.)

      I've cleaned the whole house except (for) the bathroom. I've cleaned the house except for the bathroom.
      (NOT . . . except the bathroom.)
      We're all here except (for) John and Mary.
      Except for John and Mary we're all here.
