In the week between Christmas and New Year (oh, lazy, hazy days filled with time on your hands and trying to get over your Christmas eating spree!) I read about an interesting word (and "hobby") on Diane's blog. She'd contributed to Julie of Sydney Eye's blog with a post pertaining to taphophilia. A taphophile is one who finds they are attracted to walking around cemeteries, reading the headstones and musing upon the family history contained therein.
I've been following Julie* and Diane's * blog for a couple of years now and decided to join in the Tuesday meme. As I'm frantically (lol!) busy with getting back into the flow of things, writing new articles and sharing our wonderful Kenyan safari on my blog, I used a post I'd written in 2009. It was a tribute to a very special cat which we'd taken home from West Africa in 2006. If you like, you can read this post by clicking this link
I have dragged my poor long-suffering husband around cemetries when we tour South Africa on our motorcycle. I hope you'll join Julie on her blog and post any interesting photos and information you have about graves, headstones and cemeteries.
Note* both the blogger's I have highlighted above, have wonderfully descriptive posts about/ and photos of Australia and their travels, not just on taphophiles. Please do pop in and visit them to read about their interesting lives and surroundings Down Under.
