Illegal passport stamps

Galapagos2-firstphotoDid you know that some countries make it illegal for their citizens to have unofficial entry/exit stamps in their passports?

Luckily this isn’t the case for Canada so I had no concerns about getting Machu Picchu and Galápagos stamps on my first trip to South America last year.

Gaia Passarelli included my passport stamp Instagram in her article for How to Travel Light, The Parallel World of Stamps. The article is in Portuguese, but Google Translate does a reasonable job of translating it (you do use Chrome, so you have this feature, right? Though that means you can’t see my map and tweets, below and right … C’mon Google, fix that!). Even without translation or the ability to read Portuguese, it’s easy to tell what’s what from the cool photos and learn about new places to get passport stamps.
