Frequent readers of Travelling Geek Show know that we three love travelling. While there are plently of beautiful places on this world that are waiting to be explored by us, there are also certain places we’ll never be able to visit because they are fictional. Even when it comes to fictional places, I could go on and on, but decided to settle for my to 10 fictional places I’d love to visit. I further limited myself to pick only one place per fandom. Otherwise I’d be sitting here, listing you my top 10 favourite places in Hobbiton alone! So without further ado, here are, in no particular order, my top 10 fictional places I’d love to visit if I could.
Slytherin Common Room, Harry Potter
Ok, I know what you’ll now say “You could visit Hogwarts and you pick the Slytherin Common Room of all places? What the efff?”. Well, what can I say, I’m a proud Slytherin through and through so, of course, I’d love to visit the common room first!
Hobbiton, The Lord of the Rings & The Hobbit
Of course I can’t write a list about my all-time favourite fictional places without mentioning Middle-earth somehow. While I’d also love to visit Edoras, Lothlorien, and dozens of other places in Middle-earth, my No. 1 pick will always be Hobbiton.
Dagobah, Star Wars
There are so many amazing places in the original Star Wars trilogy, but for some reason I can’t stop thinking about Dagobah. Part of me would love to get lost there and explore every corner of that planet, the ther part is terrified of it.
Fox Mulder’s Office, X-Files
Who wouldn’t want to visit Mulder’s office and go through his notes and X-Files? I think I’d probably sneak in at night, make me a coffee and just explore every corner and every little secret until I get chased out by Mulder.
Wonderland, Alice in Wonderland
Forget Oz, I want to visit Wonderland! Lewis Carroll’s book is one of those that mezmerize you and a part of you never leaves its world entirely. My greatest desire is to meet the Dodo, and then join a tea party.
China Mieville’s Embassytown was the first time I had the opportunity to have a glimpse of the wonderful imagination of Mieville. I was actually torn between his vision of London in UnLondon and the planet Arieka in Embassytown, but I settled for the latter because it is unlike anything I’ve encountered before. If you love Science Fiction, linguistics, amazing plot twists, and strong female characters, this book is something for you!
Cheyenne Mountain Complex, Stargate
Ah yes, Stargate SG-1, one of my all-time favourite TV shows, EVER! While Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe had their nice moments, I never managed to warm up with either of them. I love everything about Stargate SG-1, the humour, the amazing characters (any Samantha Carter fans out there???), mythological themes etc. Even though I’d die to visit some of the planets, I wouldn’t mind spending some time only at the Chayenne Mountain Complex and talk to the SG teams.
New New York, Futurama
If there is one cartoon series I love more than The Simpsons, than it is Futurama. It is my type of humour through and through. The crazieness of New New York makes me laugh and I’d switch with Fry anytime!
Springfield, The Simpsons
Speaking of The Simpsons, god I wish I could visit this crazy little town. Even though The Simpsons lost their mojo way too many seasons ago, you have to admit that it is a TV legend. And it is now a part of my life for around 20 years (oh my, time runs!). I don’t know what I’d do in Springfield, all I know is that I’d love to spend time with Lisa.
Any Babylon-5 fans out there? A few weeks ago, I’ve watched an episode of Babylon-5 after what felt like an eternity and was immediately nostalgic. Yeah, I know Babylon-5 is neither among the best nor among the most popular Sci-Fi TV series out there, but I loved the show when growing up and still do. I have many fond memories of this show and their characters (any Garibaldi fans out there?), so yeah I’d love to visit the Babylon-5 space station!
