Fave Five Friday: Fictional Places

Have you ever read about a fictional place and thought to yourself, I wish I could be there? Well here’s my top five places I wish I could visit.

5. Camp Half-Blood in Percy Jackson

If you’ve read the Percy Jackson series you know what I’m talking about. There are woods to explore, a beach, obstacle courses, and so much more. It’s a magical summer camp and it looks like it would be a lot of fun. Also, I took the quiz that designated which cabin/God I would belong to, and I got Poseidon! Heck yeah, I’d be roomies with Percy himself! That’s the dream.

4. Varenia in Crown of Coral and Pearl

I would love to see Varenia in it’s prime, but not when the events of Crown of Coral and Pearl take place. It’s a beautiful place with houses built on top of the tropical waters. You can dive off of your porch and into the beautiful blue below. It’s warm and you can sustain yourself through fishing and trading pearls. In Varenia, beauty is everything, so they keep their home as beautiful as possible. I’d love to visit and swim in their waters for a day.

3. The Isle of Skye in The House of Night series.

So, the Isle of Skye is a real place in Scotland, but in The House of Night it’s a mystical place ran by the Queen Sgiach, and it contains ancient fey magic plus so much more. The isle has a hanging tree where people go to tie yellow cloth and make wishes, especially lovers tying their fates together. On the isle there is also a beautiful castle where the Queen Sgiach teaches her pupils. I always thought it would be awesome to visit and learn from her.

The Shire in Lord of the Rings

The Hobbits of The Shire live a slow and peaceful life. Their daily activities mostly include, light farming, eating, smoking, drinking, and reading. It sounds like the perfect life. The Shire itself has it’s homes set inside the hills with funky round doors, and the land is a lush green. There’s a pub for the locals to celebrate in, and problems almost never penetrate the quiet Shire greenery. I love the idea of living in a place that’s peaceful and quaint. I could get so much reading done in a place like The Shire.

Hogwarts in Harry Potter

Hogwarts is the ultimate fantasy location. You could do something different everyday. I would want to explore everything, from the Room of Requirement to the Forbidden Forest. The castle is huge and there are endless mysteries, not to mention I could learn magic. There is always something fun, and dangerous, happening at Hogwarts. I think I’d get up to a lot of mischief because I was sorted into Gryffindor on Pottermore. On top of all the places I could explore, there’s the beauty of the place itself. The Hogwarts grounds have their own forest and their own lake, with a giant squid. The place is beautiful in every season and I wish I could see it in real life.

That’s my list of Fave Five Fictional Places, what are yours? Let me know in the comments.
