Last minute gate changes, canceled flights and long lines at security can make air travel frustrating. Despite these stresses, a number of frequent fliers have taken up a costly hobby - collecting passport stamps. Coveted destinations include the Republic of San Marino, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch in Wales, Antartica and Tristan da Cunha, which has a stamp in the shape of an island and a bird.
Why all this talk about passport stamps? Because for manufacturers looking to export products, a CE Marking is considered the “passport” that allows companies to gain access to the European Union and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) market.
