Cemetery Travel in Australia

199Cemeteries_cover lo-resI had the honor of being a guest on Blueprint for Living on Australia’s ABC network last Friday.  We talked about what draws people to cemeteries, what they might find there, and why it’s worth going out of your way to visit graves of people you don’t know. Here is the link to the podcast:

The three guests on the program — historian Dr. Celestina Sagazio, author Garrie Hutchinson, and me — were asked to list our ten favorite cemeteries.  Those lists are here: http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/blueprintforliving/cemetery-travel—10-of-the-worlds-best/8667452

How does your list of favorites compare?

Yesterday’s midweek holiday has thoroughly confused me, so there will be no Cemetery of the Week today.

  2. I want to listen to !! In France we have the Père Lachaise cementery where, among other people, Molière, Edith Piaf and Jim Morrison are burried. The tombs are amazing, interesting and I have to admit I like to visit it, as a touristic place.
    Plus, as an engraver, it is a pleasure to watch to the historic engraving, compare. They are piece of arts and thus are inspiring artist’s works.
