A Memorial Day slide show

A few photos to share on this Memorial Day 2012. I’ve been quite fortunate to travel the globe and capture these memories. Thousands more went before me and sacrificed so that I could.

One of my most poignant travel memories was walking in to the cemetery outside of Tunis, Tunisia where thousands of Americans who fought in World War II are buried. It was an absolutely amazing experience. I wrote about it at the time (Paying respects at the US Army cemetery in Tunisia) but every time I go back and look at the photos I still get worked up over it. Truly an amazing experience.

  1. I had the same experience and emotions when I visited Normandy. The second time was at closing when the flag was lowered. It was chilling.

  2. One of the most breath-taking U.S. military cemeteries is just outside of Florence. I visited the cemetery eleven years ago, while on an AHI tour of Tuscany. We had passed the cemetery on the way to Florence (our hotel was in the Chianti Valley), and begged the tour director to make a short stop, so we could visit. As crowded with tourists as Florence is, that’s how not crowded the cemetery was, and that made the visit all the more poignant.
