I have a confession to make – I like cemeteries.
I don’t find them spooky or scary though, I find them peaceful - as they ought to be. Places of contemplation and rest eternal. Most people don’t think of them as travel destinations, but truth be told, I enjoy visiting them. Some of the highlights of my trips have included visits to cemeteries; Metairie,
Arlington, and . Some of Verdun to name a few ’s
