Guangzhou Trip

Well, today we are back from a quick, and successful, trip to Guangzhou to pick up a new Canadian passport for Tina. Other than having to wait through a bit of a line to get up to the counter, it was very quick to just have her old passport cancelled and be handed a shiny, new, completely empty passport...


New and old passports, they clipped the corner on half the pages of Tina's old passport. And, after clipping the corner, they stamped cancelled on most all of the pages...

For the time being we will have to carry both of these passports with us whenever we travel, as her old passport is void but still contains her active visa to be in China.

In getting the new passport, Tina and I got to talking about how lucky we have been with all of traveling that we have done in the time that we have know each other. It really is amazing, some of the places that we have been, and some of the great visas and stamps that she managed to collect. As a short manner of bragging, we are showing some of those below:

Visa for Vietnam
Visa for Laos
Visa for the Kingdom of Cambodia
Visa for China, and stamps from Easter Island

We are going to have to work to start filling her new passport up....

I especially like the Easter Island stamp! I'm so envious.
