Passport Passport

Fantastically rare passport stamps from all over the world

I have always had a fascination for passport stamps. Ever since I started traveling I would collect these little marks of having visited a place and then flip through the passport pages when home. I have also been keeping all the passports for the last 12 years, that is 13 of them, and all the corresponding boarding passes. But I have not been everywhere (yet!) and there are a lot of passport stamps I am yet to see, some of which are for the least visited places, temporary stamps issued during specific times, like when Lord of the Rings first came out in New Zealand. Or just rare passport stamps that are hard to come by unless you are an intrepid traveler.

    When I went to Easter Island about 15 years ago, I had to go to the tiny post office and pay about US$1 to get my passport stamped. It is totally a souvenir.

    • Absolutely, a treasure to keep forever.
