I’m feeling quite, abandoned shall we say. It was ever since I was in the middle of a debate over a holiday destination with friends recently. I made the mistake of lamenting aloud over the dearth of zombie themed holidays. At the same time, I discovered a newfound talent to empty a room of friends within seconds.
So now I find myself perusing the single holidays sections of various tour operators in the vain hope of fulfilling my dream, or nightmare as it may sound to you.
I’m sure you see my point. We can tour America, cruise the Caribbean and visit the ancient castles of Europe but we can’t actually trek in the footsteps of zombies.
I’ve been aware of my burgeoning fixation of late for films falling into the zombie genre, particularly those with an ‘of the dead’ suffix in their title. Therapy is pointless and I understand I’m not alone. The success of the TV series The Walking Dead is proof that we need them in our lives. Rumours also abound that Natalie Portman will be starring in a Pride and Prejudice with zombies adaptation.

If you look closely next time you visit your discount supermarket, you’ll see a few lurking in the shadows attempting to pass themselves as humans.
We are bombarded with zombie board games, zombie computer games, zombie posters, zombie costumes and even zombie cakes! But no zombie holidays.
So here are my suggestions for a short zombie tour:-
|Land of the Dead|
|Dance of the Dead|
|Diary of the Dead|
|Dawn Of The Dead|
Alas, it’s not to be. Instead, I’ll continue to search for activity holidays and live in hope that a like-minded tour operator will one day seize the opportunity and fill such a desperate gap in the market. At least there’s the chance to go alien hunting in Roswell while I wait and who knows what we might find there!
