Hello! Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme originally created by The Broke and The Bookish, and is now hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl.
Today’s topic is: Places Mentioned In Books That I’d Like to Visit (submitted by Georgia @ Just Read Them)
I love travelling, and visiting/living in countries besides the US is a goal of mine
anybody got some spare cash to give to a wannabe traveler? Today, I’m listing seven places from books that I would love to visit.
Let’s get started.
*Green Gables. As soon as I started reading about Anne, I wanted to visit Prince Edward Island and see Green Gables for myself. The town sounds lovely and it’s been on my bucket-list since I was a child.
*Gallagher Academy. A girls boarding school for spies. Um yeah! I’d love to find all the secret passage-ways, sneak out of the building through an underground tunnel, find the secret library…
*Mr and Mrs. DiNunzio’s house. Mary DiNunzio’s parents are Italian and they have a house with faulty air conditioning and a small fan in a tiny kitchen. However, I would love to eat some of Mrs. DiNunzio’s delicious food and become an adopted member of such a tight-knit and loving family!
*Aunt Eloise’s Apartment. Nancy Drew is one of my childhood besties and Aunt Eloise has become a person I would love to know. First of all, she’s a teacher, something I wanted to be as a kid, second of all, she’s this cool adult who doesn’t harass Nancy except to worry about her well-being, and I just want to meet her and see her apartment 🙂
*Dot’s family home. Dot from the Sammy Keyes Series is Dutch and from Holland. Her family is pretty large, she has HORSES, and her mom cooks these amazing dishes! I love food and horses so I’m going to be content living with her.
*Paris. Paris, oh beautiful Paris! It’s the city of lights, the city of love and the romantic part in me wants to eat in fancy French restaurants, see the beautiful cities, and just immerse myself in the magic of Paris.
There is such a thing, right?
*London. London bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down. London bridge.. er sorry. London is the second city that I can not wait to see one day. I have this
weird obsession with British history, the Monarchy, British accents, driving on the opposite side of the road, London cafes, the sometimes dreary weather, etc… I just love it for some reason and any book set there leaves my heart content 😊
That’s it for this Tuesday! Which places from book or real life would you like to visit? Let’s chat in the comments below (Be sure to link to your TTT so I can check it out as well)
