There’s lots of places I’d like to someday visit. I say “someday” because 95% (probably more) of the time I am content in my world. I don’t mind that I’m not an experienced traveler and I don’t mind that the trips I have been on have been to visit family. It’s life and it’s okay by me. This doesn’t mean there aren’t some places I may want to see and certainly part of this appeal is the places we visit in the fiction we read. Let’s look at a few places in books to visit.
I’m not one that has a passion to live (just thinking about it) in any of these places, but visiting them could certainly be fun. Some of the places on my list aren’t exotic, but as they were places I enjoyed visiting while reading the book, I did want to include them because they’re fictional worlds that transported this viewer, even if it was only in a happy reading space. Let’s do this!

This is an era I would never imagine myself living in, but for a day? It might be fun to see. This is primarily from Downton Abbey, but I’ve read books like Murder at the Flamingo and the like that makes everything seem exciting, too! Amazon | Bookshop.org | Goodreads
2: CASTLE IN THE CLOUDS
3: ELLINGHAM ACADEMY (FROM TRULY DEVIOUS)
This stems from books like The Runaway Princess or Geek Girl, books by Katherine Reay, and likely a million others I cannot think of! But either way, it’d be fun to visit. I feel like I’d be more of a small town visitor as opposed to someplace like London.
5: [AN] ESTATE
6: GREECE (FROM LOVE & OLIVES)
7: [A] KINGDOM (FROM THE BETROTHED)
This is pretty open-ended and could include many stories. I’m using The Betrothed just because it was likely the last novel I read with a kingdom in the plot. Also, I’d likely only want to spend the day in this kind of world as a: I wouldn’t want to be accused of something offensive and be sent to a dudgeon and b: I’d likely miss the modern world more than I like to think!

8: LARA JEAN’S WORLD
This is set in the contemporary world, but visiting Lara Jean (along with her gang) would just be fun. Not sure the precise “why” of it, but this is one of those books I talked about above. It just makes me happy. Amazon | Bookshop.org | Goodreads
10: PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND (FROM ANNE OF GREEN GABLES)
I’m not really interested in visiting Canada per se, however as I grew up watching Anne of Green Gables, and some of the scenery is just STUNNING. Needless to say, I feel like this would be quite a place to visit. Amazon | Bookshop.org | Goodreads
