#1 The National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Alabama, USA

First, @derangedvisions takes us to the newly opened (April 2018) and somewhat controversial lynching museum in Alabama, USA. It was constructed to honour more than 4,400 documented lynching victims from 1877 to 1950. However, there is believed to be about 3–4 times more victims that were never documented. Although a sad place, the museum's sculptures and words that describe US slavery do an excellent job of capturing the emotions of what happened to these people less than 100 years ago.

#2 Camping Auf Kengert, Larochette, Luxembourg

Next, @guchtere pitches his tent at Camping Auf Kengert in Larochette, Luxembourg. This place is great for mountain biking, hiking, and exploring nearby towns. Nearby—and not to be missed—is Luxembourg's biggest waterfall, Schiessentümpel, which comes complete with its own urban legend. There are also rock formations to crawl through, Vianden Castle to wander through, and awesome pizza to be consumed. There's a lot on offer in this small country.

#3 Cooper Pedy, Outback, Australia

Finally, @overlandjournals takes us to the South Australian desert town of Cooper Pedy. Not only is it the world's opal mining capital, but what makes this place special is the houses. Residents live in dug-outs carved into the rocks. This keeps the inside temperatures constant at 24°C, compared to outside temperatures of 6°C overnight in winter, and up to 50°C in summer. Several movies have been filmed here including Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome and Priscilla Queen of the Desert. It's a fascinating town offering some cool activities.

Thank you for sharing my post about the museum. Though the meaning of the museum can be thought of as horrific, it is a way to honor those people that we affected and are still feeling the affects of these tragic events. Thank for for allowing me to share their story with more people.

You're welcome. They are always solemn places and give reason to reflect. You did a great job of writing up that one.

Thank you for sharing my post! Congrats for @derangedvisions and @overlandjournals and all the other Honorable Mentions.

@derangedvisions really fantastic post you made there about the museum. It gave me a sad feeling because of the story behind it, but the pictures I really enjoyed. Very strange to have such feelings that differ so much from each other.

You packed a lot into your trip. It was a cool post.
