fictional places I'd like to visit

The other day I got a code for a free RedBox rental and decided what better way to spend my night than with a free movie in bed. I had planned on renting Frozen, but when I got there I discovered it wasn't available so I had to make a second choice. After scrolling through the available options a couple of times I finally settled on Austenland. I had read the book a while back but hadn't made it to the theatre to see the movie so I figured I'd give it a chance. The basic story is that Keri Russell's character is a single 30ish woman obsessed with everything Jane Austen who goes to this resort in England where everyone pretends they're in a Jane Austen novel.

The movie was just okay but it got me to thinking about which fictional places I'd like to visit.

Harry Potter - Heck freaking yes! Yeah Voldemort and the Death Eaters are pretty scary, but no way would I turn down the chance to go to Hogwarts. I'd be a Hufflepuff which is totally the best house no matter what society tries to say.

The Little Mermaid - Ariel isn't my favorite princess, but I think we can all agree her world is the best. Mermaids always have great hair and they don't have to shave their legs.

The Great Gatsby - Who wouldn't want to be able to experience a Jay Gatsby party. Sipping champaign and doing some serious people watching sounds like my idea of a great time.

Gilmore Girls - I don't think I'd want to live in Stars Hollow (too small), but I'd love to go visit. It's like a more interesting version of Mayberry

What fictional places would you like to visit? And for the record Arendelle is not a place I'd include on my travel bucket list.

  1. If Stars Hollow had a Target I'd totally live there.


I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
