I'm an art fanatic. I criss-cross the world in search of great architecture and art in museums, churches and sometimes, as ghoulish as it sounds, graveyards. The only time I will enter a graveyard is if there is a Tiffany or La Farge window in the mausoleum or the cemetery is of some seriously historic significance. Otherwise, I stay away from a cemetery like it's the plague.
The small museums can be as great as the famous big ones. I learn so much about people and history when I go all over the world and travel within the States. I read as much as I can about the history and the place as possible before I go. I do such a good job that some people ask me if I'm a local.
