Norway is the little 'rich' brother the Swedes are so jealous of...

They aparently really envy the celebrations here on the 17th of May for example.

Anyway, not to get off topic... I didn't get one when being deported from Bali :( But the Indonesian and Norwegian ones are the nicest since they are a full page sticker kind of thing, rather than the standard stamp you get entering a country.

All the other ones are extremely ordinary!

Which country (Norway OR Sweden) considers the other to be its "little brother"?

Well, Norway having only half the population of Sweden and twise the taxes on alcohol and tobacco, I would say Norway is the "little brother". But we are way cooler... ;)

I have a couple of cool looking colorful visas, but aside from all the weird letters and languages in my passport, the only one that I remember being kind of cool is the one I recieved upon arrival in the Galopagos Islands (its got a hammerhead shark and a giant tortoise in a circle).
And they actually used enough ink where it looks good...I hate when you get to some obscure, hard-to-get-to destination and they stamp your passport without hitting the ink pad and you can bearly tell where it was from.

I've just about run out of pages and my passport is still valid for another 5 years. It's times like this, I wish I was American because their embassies will just add more pages to their passports. The Aussie & Brits have to buy whole new passports

Wow wocca...what a pain. I've simply added pages to all the passports I've had.

We even have an option when getting a new passport to get double the number of pages to start. My current passport is a 10 year one, I got it with double the pages to start, and also have since added pages (at no cost), so its pretty thick.

Yes ! A real pain in the proverbial ... I've seen American passports with pages added. All that is needed is a simple endorsement.

I haven't had my passport stamped anywhere in Europe as yet! Makes me a bit sad...shame you can't just ask them to stamp it for you...or can you? :)
