June 28: Freebie Week
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.
So this is freebie week for Top Ten Tuesday, we are able to talk about anything and everything book related, so I choose to talk about a list that I’ve been thinking about a lot recently. Books that make me want to travel. I love traveling, I haven’t done a lot traveling in my life, but I’m working on changing that. Growing up I used to have a world map tacked above my bed and I had push pins covering it, there are so many places that I want to go.
I don’t know about you but when I read a book set in another city/state/country/continent I really want to go there and explore it for myself.
So here is my list of places that books have made me want to buy a ticket and travel 🙂
How can you read Outlander and not want to go to Scotland? My main issue is that I want to go to Scotland in 1743 and find my own sexy Scottish Highlander 😉 but I will gladly go to modern day Scotland.
The bf and I are talking about planning a trip to Scotland, so far the plan is to fly to London and spend a couple days there, go up to Edinburgh and spend some days there, explore the Highlands and Isle of Skye, back to Edinburgh, fly to Dublin Ireland then fly home. This is not happening soon but maybe next year *fingers crossed*
Daughter of Smoke and Bone- Prague
While DoSB initially made me want to go to Prague some additional travel books and looking at attractions and architecture has really made me want to visit Prague.
The Infernal Devices- London
Again with the whole time travel issue, Victorian era London would be cool to be able to visit!
The Bronze Horseman- Russia
Don’t worry I actually wouldn’t want to go to WW2 Russia, but I would still like to go to modern day Russia, preferably in the summer 😉
Anna and the French Kiss- France
Ever since I could remember I’ve always and forever wanted to travel to France or Paris. I love the french language and I am learning it in my spare time just because I want to. Traveling to France has always been a bucket list.
Lola and the Boy Next Door- San Francisco
This is one of my goals for 2017, even if I can only take a long weekend quick trip to San Francisco I would be so thrilled!
November 9- New York City
Another place I’ve wanted to go to for as long as I could remember and it might actually happen this year, my uncle and I were talking about flying to NYC in December to see family over there.
Days of Blood and Starlight- Morocco
This one also is influenced by Casablanca, I would love to go to Morocco and see the architecture, art, and food. I’d really like to go there.
Honorary Fictional Mentions
The Hobbit- Middle Earth/ New Zealand
I would love to go to Middle Earth but only if I can be an elf! That would be beyond amazing!
Also how amazing would it be to go to New Zealand and do the hobbit tour and stay in a hobbit hole?! Dream goal is to stay in a hobbit house!
Harry Potter- The Wizarding World
No explanation needed I’m sure.
Does reading make anyone else want to travel? Where are some places that you would like to travel to? Along with this list I’d also like to go to Barcelona, Thailand, Australia, and China.
