One of the worst oversights in travel literature is the complete lack of information on where and where not to travel after the inevitable zombie apocalypse. Some of us aren’t resigned to the fate of living in a prison fortress and harvesting root vegetables for the rest of our lives, and we still plan on fulfilling our lifelong dream of seeing the world, shambling hordes of undead be damned.
Our Lonely Planet and Fodor’s guides will be useless by then, however. They irresponsibly omit important information like population density, likely infection rates, possible escape routes with notes on road passability, and whether the local cuisine is likely to include sacrificial tourist meat. Matador, as a responsible travel publication, has decided to begin to help fill this vacuum. Here we’ve put together a brief list of popular tourist destinations and whether or not you should consider them in your wanderings through the world of the undead.
