This week's question is...

Armchair Travel! Tell us about your favorite book in a setting you’d like to visit (a real place for this question).

Terri's Answer

Oh good question...I have read so many books that take place in so many wonderful settings that I can't even remember most of them.  I will have to go with the book that takes place (partially) in a place I have on my bucket list of places to is a long list.  It is currently a book that is very much in the spotlight at the moment due to the release of the move last week...which was one of the best book to movie adaptations I have seen yet BTW

And that place would be Amsterdam.  I have read a few books that took place here and they make it sound so beautiful.  A perfect day would be a bike ride around the canals and then finding a shady spot to curl up with a great book and a delicious snack

This will be crossed off of my bucket list sooner rather than later that's for sure!

Kristine's Answer

I have to agree with Terri yet again. Amsterdam is definitely a place I would like to visit. I am trying to think of another book with a setting that appeals and I am drawing a blank. I know there are many and I'll probably think of them all after this post goes up. Seeing as how I am drawing a blank (the joys of working nights) I can tell you a setting that I would love to read about in a book and that would be Santorini, Greece or any of the Greek Isles. Do any of you know of a great book or books that take place there because I would love to read them?

I will be visiting Santorini next fall and even though I have never been there before, I am already in love with it.

How about you? What is your favourite book setting that you would like to visit?

  1. Oh my goodness I love Santorini! And Mykonos! Greece is amazing. The islands really are beautiful. I remember Santorini vividly because that's where I realized I was allergic to horses and donkeys! We rode a donkey up the side of the mountain. That was quite an experience. But Mykonos was my favorite. There was so much to do! Have fun in Santorini!
    I thought about Amsterdam but in the end I decided on Venice (again) or Prague. Here's mine:

  2. I've never been the one to want to visit Amsterdam, but after seeing the pictures you added, you definitely have me convinced! I'll go there after I stop by London :)

  4. I'm studying abroad in Europe next month, but my class won't visit Amsterdam. My best friend is though, so we can live vicariously through her! Wasn't it beautiful in the TFIOS?

    Kristine - One of the characters in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants visits Greece! Very jealous you are going!
