Have you ever paid respects to your favorite authors by visiting their graves, houses, etc.?

When I was in Russia this past summer I visited Yasnaya Polyana (Tolstoy's estate and final resting place), Dostoevsky's apartment and grave, Gogol's grave, Chekhov's grave, Pushkin's favorite cafe, Nabokov's home in Peterburg, and probably a few others that I can't recall at the moment.

I visited Áron Tamási's grave and childhood home in Transylvania. It was really nice. The author's niece and her husband own the place and they turned it into a memorial house with lots, lots of manuscripts, diaries, letters, photos and interviews. Some first edition stuff, too.
It was also the first place I visited that had no Romanian text at all and had everything in Hungarian.

I want to visit Robinson Jeffers home in California and Marguerite Yourcenar's home on Mount Desert Island off of Maine. But I am poor and travel seems unlikely unless I go full hobo.

This, and

- Petofi literary museum in Budapest
- Du Fu's cottage in Chengdu

That's pretty much it surprisingly enough.
