With recent news coming out that the EU wants to restrict visa-free travel for Americans, Andrew retouches on a topic he spoke about last week — second passports. Don’t let your ego get in the way of a second passport from a ‘lesser’ country. The reality is that those ‘first world passports’ are hard to come by and require an extensive investment on your time. However, there are plenty of fantastic T and B tier passport for a good value, if you’re willing to take ego out of it.
