These Books Were Made For Walking is hosted by Strumpet's Life. Here's the post from this month . . .
Just to refresh our memories ... I am inviting you on the 3rd Wednesday of every month to think about a topic that has to do with books and travel. So, here is the topic for this month:
Is there a place that you have always dreamed of visiting specifically because of a book you read? It can be any kind of book: fiction, non-fiction, travelogue, you name it. If you have been to the place, did it live up to your expectations? If you haven't been, do you think you'll ever make it there?
Because I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan, I'm going to have to go with a fictional location here . . . Hogwarts!! I know, I know . . . the true nerd in me is coming out now!! I am not afraid to admit it though!! I would love to be able to walk through the halls of the infamous wizarding school, to talk to the paintings, to be graced with a visit from Myrtle, to maybe step foot into The Forbidden Forest . . . really, there is adventure around every corner in that place!! Obviously, I have never been there, but the good news is that I hope to someday. I hope to use my kids as an excuse to visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort once it opens sometime next year!
Now, don't be shy . . . where would you like to visit?
I agree about Hogwarts ... aren't you just dying to try a butterbeer? ;)ReplyDelete
I think for me it would be Egypt because of the Amelia Peabody books (by Elizabeth Peters). But I wish I could have seen the Sphinx before it was ruined by idiots with guns ...
Thank you so much for playing!! I totally understand about the fictional desire! Hogwarts does seem very cool.ReplyDelete
We were just in Universal in Orlando, and I saw all the construction going on for Harry Potter. Very exciting!
Kristen M. . . . Oooohhh, Egypt . . . that's another place I would like to go someday. I've actually never read any books by Elizabeth Peters, but I should add them to my must-read list!! And, I would love to try some real butterbeer!!ReplyDelete
Strumpet . . . thanks for hosting! I love this meme!!
Oh, yes, Hogwarts...Would LOVE to go there....ReplyDelete
I really would love to visit Alaska! It just seems so.....cool there (in both senses of the word)!
And also because I want to see the aurora borealis before I die.
I will do my best to make sure I get to go there!!
This was fun, thanks for posting!
Axhnanh . . . Thank you for stopping by! I've never been to Alaska, but have always wanted to go too!!ReplyDelete
