Beautiful Peoples' Passports

I wish I looked as beautiful  as the ladies in their passport photos. It's quite marvelous how photogenic they are.

John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy

Truman Capote, author of, among other things, Breakfast at Tiffany's 

Still breathtakingly beautiful, Marilyn Monroe.

Alfred Hitchcock.

Albert Einstein

And, my favorite -- Audrey Hepburn.

Fun passport trivia:

Did you know that the oldest record of someone who was given something akin to a passport is found in the book of Nehemiah in the bible? The prophet Nehemiah was given letters from the king so that he could travel safely to the land of Judah.

The Danish passport can get you into the most countries in the world (169 countries), visa-free!

The Queen of England does not need a passport to travel to any country. The Pope, on the other hand, does. His passport is Vatican's passport # 1.

The passport of Nicaragua has 89 security features, such as holograms, watermarks and barcodes, making it the world's most-impossible to forge document.
