Dreaming of a Literary Pilgrimage

A literary pilgrimage is when you go to the home, grave, or favorite place of your favorite writer.

This is something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time. I was never sure if I’d be able to and still don’t know if I ever will, but I’ve got a plan.

A close friend and I have been talking for the last year or so about doing a roadtrip in our elder years. We have so much in common that this was exactly what both of us would need. It’s bucketlist roadtrip/haunting tour of America.

One of the first places we want to visit is New Orleans. We love Anne Rice and her Vampire Chronicles. This is the only place that made sense to begin the trip.

Another place we want to visit is from a movie, The Stanley Hotel. The Shining is such a great movie. So Colorado has been calling. Where on the list this spot will fall, not sure, but it’s for sure on there!

We both love Edgar Allan Poe, so his grave would be a spot to visit. Baltimore, Maryland will see us visiting for sure.

These are confirmed locations we’d like to visit. We’ve mentioned other ones, but never confirmed as a ‘for sure’ hit on the trip.
