TPG recently shared his personal favorite passport stamp, acquired in Easter Island.  

After oohing and ahh-ing over the design, it got us thinking: Whare are some of the most interesting places in the world to visit, and where can you get some truly unique passport stamps?

So we asked our TPG Lounge readers, “What’s the coolest passport stamp you’ve ever gotten?” And boy, did they deliver.

Here’s where our readers have been:
