If it was my sister the gentleman in question would have been paid a friendly visit already, and the meeting would not be happening!  Wink

The "coming of age of a country" would be Independence.

Does that help with the thoughts?

They're never old enough to look after themselves. I am 'blessed' with 3 sisters (4 if you count step sisters) and not one of them is capable of looking after themselves.

All require the delicate input that only an over-protective brother is capable of providing, and whilst they may protest initially, all see the benefit of ones brotherly wisdom eventually.

Louise is a French name. Bastille day is past, it's not really independence day anyways, so maybe an ex-French colony with Independence day coming up.

Don't know about right of passage though.

St Kitts has an Independence day this weekend, but would he really be taking her all the way there just for a weekend??

Plucking at clues... Split in Croatia

right of passage - Croatia's on the right of the Adriatic
Croatia is 18 this year, came of age - claimed independence in June 1991
and Louise, being a middle name, "Splits" her name.

I don't want to nitpick, but it's actually "rite of passage". He wants to plan something for her "independence" which is also a "rite of passage". Good luck with that  Smile

I thought you didn't need a passport for travel anywhere within the EU. Is that not correct? The "chunnel" provides easy passage to the continent.

If the UK were to introduce a national ID card, then that would count as sufficient ID to travel around Europe, such as current national ID cards do. Until then, you need a passport.

Right [sic] of passage could refer to a toll, or a passport (has he secretly applied for one for her?)
Coming of age... could be independence (as already mentioned) but could be a battlefield somewhere... Hastings?
Louise could be Lewes in Sussex?

So, somewhere on the south coast?

right of passage + coming of age for a country + louise
