Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is about bookish settings I would like to visit. This is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. The following are 10 bookish settings that are on my list of places I would love to visit or vacation in. Maps are from Lonely Planet. What places would you like to visit based on bookish inspiration?
One. Mallorca, Spain. In The Vacationers, the dysfunctional family vacations in Mallorca, an island off the coast of Spain.
Two. Spain – Of course I would also love to visit mainland Spain, so The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway serves as a lovely inspiration for this future visit as the main characters visit Pamploma, San Sebastian and Madrid.
Three. Guernsey (UK) – Reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society made this island an intriguing vacation destination for me. Located in the English Channel, this island is rich in history and beauty.
Four. Australia – There are many books taking place on this continent I would love to visit. The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman is one.
Five. Colombia – Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez takes place in this beautiful country that I have long wished to visit.
Six. Egypt – The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho takes place in this country with so much beauty and history to explore.
Seven. Greece – Like Egypt, Greece is so rich in history and beauty. Corelli’s Mandolin by Louis de Bernieres takes place here.
Eight. India – In The Resurrection of Joan Ashby, Joan visits India in the second half of the book to resurrect herself through Indian culture.
Nine. Brazil – In Ways to Disappear by Idra Novel, the protagonist takes off to Brazil for a hilarious wonderful journey.
Ten. Kenya – Out of Africa by Isak Dinesen takes place in Kenya, a place I would love to visit. I would love to explore this area on a safari.
