This is Top Ten Freebie week so my topic is... Top Ten Worlds I'd Like To Visit.
The big kahuna of course is... Middle earth. Seriously, for fantasy fans... who wouldn't want to go there? Some of my favorite places to visit would be... Rivendell, the Tower Hills, Lothlorien. And maybe drinks at the Green Dragon Inn...
Next up for me... Narnia.
There's something about Narnia... the lamppost, the mythical creatures, the sense that children can go there but adults often cannot. It would be nice to visit Cair Paravel and gaze out over the sea...
My third choice would be Westeros, from A Game of Thrones. Why Westeros, you may ask? After all, the place is nasty right? Well yeah... but think of all the sights to see. Here are some links that make me want to visit Westeros. Winterfell, Castle Black and the Wall, Eastwatch by the Sea (love this one), Pyke (the Iron Islands), and the Eyrie. These images are all by Ted Nasmith and are awesome.
This is how Jaime Lannister looks to me by the way, not that guy they got on the show.
Dinotopia. I like the concept of the Victorian explorer finding a land where dinosaurs and people coexist. And the art ain't bad... these pieces here and here pretty well sum up the appeal of Dinotopia for me.
The Star Wars universe. I would love to buzz around Coruscant...
The 100 Acre Wood of Winnie the Pooh fame. Probably the most relaxing place on this list... I could hang out at the Big Stones and Rox, or maybe the Bee Tree (as long as you don't mess with their honey), and of course Pooh's house. And isn't there a bridge around there somewhere?
In the same vein would be the world of Peanuts. I grew up reading a ton of Peanuts books and would love to visit that world.
Emilie and the Hollow World was a fun YA fantasy about a girl who stows away on a ship and finds herself on an expedition to the hollow world. The thing that I liked about this world was the merpeople and their city- the way it was described, I immediately wanted to go there. Here's a link to the first chapter on the author's website. My review here.
The mythical valley of Shangri- La, where people live in peace and have extended lifespans. A hidden valley in the Himalayas and a place of refuge from the outside world...
So what are your picks?
