I remember getting my first passport stamp from my first international experience. It was my first trip to Singapore. I stared at the book for a few minutes taking it all in. Excited that I arrived. Since then, I’ve been excited to get stamps in my passport. I remember being so disappointed when I drove to Canada and they wouldn’t stamp the passport. I begged and pleaded but they wouldn’t do it. If you’ve received stamps in your passport, you know the feeling. But for those of you don’t know the feeling, let me try to explain the addiction. Passport stamps are great because it proves that you’ve been somewhere. The passport and the stamps is the history of your travel life. Each stamp has its own unique story. It’s a conversation piece. Stamps are cool to look at. After you get your first stamp, you get a strong urge to want more. Sometimes I open up my book and I stare at it and reminisce about what I did on that trip and the people that I’ve met along the way. The stamps are tangible histories that you cherish for life and always keep with you. It’s my personal goal to collect a new stamp every year.
