Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Places Books/Shows/Movies Have Made Me Want To Visit

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. You can find all the awesome details of the meme right here. If you run a blog, I highly suggest you join it — it’s great fun! 

So yes. I’ve changed this week’s theme a little — but why not? There are so many (fictional) places that I’d want to visit that it was impossible to just chose from books. As well as this, I’ve included real places, too.

84901121. Daughter of Smoke and Bone — Prague.

Laini Taylor paints Prague so beautifully that I can’t help but want to go there. When I saw this week’s theme, this was the first book that I thought of. I could do with the angels and demons, but you know, Prague sounds great.

721932. Harry Potter — England/Hogwarts.

Oh, please. Like this one isn’t going to be on everyone’s list this week!!

1009153. The Chronicles of Narnia — Narnia.

I haven’t actually read these books, though I know I must! However I have watched the first movie, though, and I remember loving the world that it was set in, so this definitely had to be on my list. And I really really need to get around to reading the books!

153504. Lord of the Rings — Middle Earth . . . or I’d be cool with the South Island of New Zealand.

I’ve partially read the first book, but personally I just couldn’t get into it, though I would like to try again at a later time. However, I love the films, so this definitely has to be on my list! And oh, the scenery! How beautiful! I’ve been to the north island of New Zealand, though know that it was mainly shot in the south island, right? (Not 100% sure on this.)

109645. Outlander — Scotland.

I feel like this novel has been on my list for the past few weeks! But I can’t help it. I would love to visit Scotland.

377026. Alice in Wonderland — Wonderland.

YES YES YES YES YES YES YES DEFINITELY. Wonderland, here I come!!

94628127. Die For Me — Paris.

Well. I didn’t love these novels. But they do want to make me visit Paris. I mean, who doesn’t want to go to Paris?!

8. A Game of Thrones — Westeros.11788809

Another book that was on last week’s post! I’m feeling rather unoriginal this week, but hey, A Game of Thrones has some amazing descriptions of places and settings, so Westeros sounds like a pretty cool place to visit. (Save for, you know, war and stuff.)

lost-poster-271x3509. Lost — The Island.

Well . . . apart from maybe the Others and the Smoke Monster and polar bears and boards and people dying all the time, the Island sounds pretty awesome. I know it was filmed in Hawaii, which is also a very beautiful place. Maybe I’ll opt for Hawaii instead of the Island.

1frozen_teaser_d_maxi_poster_raw0. Frozen — Arendelle.

Let it snow, let it snooooooooooooow, Kara likes a lot of snow! (Jokes, I’ve never actually seen snow before. But at least Arendelle looks pretty, right?)

  1. I also had Hogwarts, Wonderland and Narnia!! That would just be so cool. My religion tells me that we get to go to Hogwarts when we die (that would the Potterhead religion, of course). But Middle-Earth would be pretty cool as well – I read all three books a couple years ago (IT TOOK FOREVER) and they really are worth the struggle :D

  2. I would also love to visit Narnia, Wonderland and Middle Earth. Actually, I might hold off a little bit in Middle Earth because of all the scary orcs and goblins and such… How have you not read The Chronicles of Narnia yet? You really have to get on with that. Hmmmm…if you couldn’t really get into LOTR, I suggest The Hobbit. I personally like The Hobbit a lot better because I thought it was a lot more entertaining and immersive. Arendelle does look really pretty! I haven’t seen the movie yet (I know, I know, I have to fix that), but from the snippets I have seen, it looks like a great place. It is also an excuse to go sledding and drink lots of peppermint hot chocolate. :)

  3. Arendalle, YUS. And Narnia! Oh man, Narnia. I would just LOVE that. Minus the Snow Queen? I don’t know. I feel like I’d steer clear of that biache. Peter though! He got hot. And Caspian. Wow. Anyway, I got off topic, lol. YES HOGWARTS. Again, minus Voldemort and Death Eaters and the like. I’ve only read the first book in the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, but yes, I agree that Prague sounds so gorgeous <3 Man, I just wanna travel.

  4. Hogwarts, Scotland, Prague. Perfect, perfect choices! Laini does a freaking amazing job at painting Prague, doesn’t she? I feel like sometimes these amazing authors could write travel brochures and they would probably make me go broke because I want to go everywhere.

  5. Ooh. This is a fantastic list this week…I’d love to go to Prague, England/Hogwarts, Middle Earth, Scotland, Wonderland and Paris! <3 <3 <3 My wanderlust will be going crazy this week. Also, Narnia would be pretty cool too, I suppose. I didn't really enjoy those books all that much though. They just weren't for me when I read them when I was younger. I'm thinking of re-reading them sometime soon though.

  6. Great choices Kara :) Prague would be a fascinating place to visit for sure, and you simply can’t turn down Paris! Scotland looks like a country with some beautiful scenery which would be nice, and for something way out of the ordinary Wonderland would be a great option too!

  7. *hi fives for Prague* I’m basically in deep longing to go to ANY country in Europe. But mostly Paris. Very muchly so for London/Scotland and…then Amsterdam and Prague too, now. Minus the angels and, like, apocalypse. I think it’d be exciting, but I want to sight-see before angels destroy the world.

  8. The Lost Island made me laugh, that’s the most unique choice I’ve seen so far. I thought it said bipolar bears then. That might have made it a little more interesting. I think I watched it up until they inhabited the village, but it just felt like it was rehashing the same story over and over. Completely agree with Prague, especially the way Laini Taylor painted it so vividly. The art, the culture, it sounded magnificent! Kristy from Book Nerd Reviews has been there and visited all the DoSaB scenes. Pester her to see it, it’s absolutely brilliant.
    Thanks for sharing Kara <3

  9. Hogwarts is irresistible. I don’t know who didn’t put it on their list, honestly. I just finished reading Outlander a few weeks ago. It was a great book, but I’m not sure if I’d want to walk through Claire’s shoes, haha.

  10. Westeros, Hogwarts, Narnia and Middle Earth would be on my list as well. Those are just amazing, I can’t even imagine what it would be like to actually be able to see them. I have never seen Frozen *so ashamed* Great list!
