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?
