With my upcoming trip to Tanzania at the end of June, I needed to renew my passport.
I consider my passport as a souvenir, not just a travel document. Whenever I tell people about all the places I’ve traveled to, they want to see the stamps that I collected along the way. So I decided to post them here.
Below are photos of all the pages of my passport, along with a description of each stamp:
The Schengen countries I traveled to are not included in this passport. I didn’t get the passport stamped while I was traveling to most European countries, which is about 30 countries. For some countries, I went to the tourist office and paid to get the passport stamped.
The passport is in terrible shape. It was in a flood and the cover split in two so I had to glue it together. Border officers could never get the first page to swipe into the system because it warped and the electronics were ruined, they had to always input the passport number manually.
Now my new passport is shiny and clean, and I won’t be keeping it in my back pocket when I travel like I did with my old one.
