Get Up Offa That Slump is a blogging extravaganza/challenge for those of you that have been struggling to post creative content on your blog. Rachel @ Beauty and the Bookshelf is the fabulous mind behind it all. For today, the topic is to plan a fictional trip. This includes a cool list of fictional places that I’ve read about in books that I would love to visit.
Colby, North Carolina
So this is the place that I have to start off with since I’m clearly a huge Sarah Dessen fan. Rachel also included this on her list because she has great taste in fictional towns. Anyway, I agree with everything that she said about all of the activities to do while you’re there. I particularly look forward to hanging out with Colie, Isabel, and Morgan down at the Last Chance Cafe. It would also be amazing to see my boy Dexter and his band Truth Squad in concert. The possibilities of things to do while in Colby are absolutely endless!
Coastal, North Carolina
So there’s a lot of fictional towns that Nicholas Sparks writes in his books. I have to say that there’s many of them to chose from, and there’s not one specific place that I’d really want to go and visit. However, the main attraction for me going there would be to see the fabulous ocean. I’d also want to go see Allie and Noah’s house, they actually let people go to the house where they filmed the movie which I think would be cool to see. It’d be nice to go eat at the restaurant where the girl worked at in Safe Haven.
So this is clearly a real place, but I want to go and hangout with Simon Spier and his awesome friends. Like how cool would it be to head over to his high school and hangout with the whole theatre department? I would also love to see a musical that Simon and Abby are the leads in. Maybe I could even make it over when the carnival is in town. So I can ride the Tilt-a-Whirl since it turned out to be one of the most adorable moments in the book, despite how nervous poor Blue was about riding it. Anyway, this would just be a great place to hangout with Simon, Leah, Nick, Abby, Bram, Garrett, and whoever else they are hanging out with these days!
It seriously broke my heart when I first found out that Genovia wasn’t a real country. Honestly, it took me WAY too long for me to realize it wasn’t, like I was in the seventh grade before I knew. Yeah, this should definitely be a real place because it would be so much fun to visit. Going off of the books here and not the fact that perfect Julie Andrews played the part in the movie, I wouldn’t want to cross paths with Grandmere. But I would like to at least sit in a few times while Mia is having her Princess lessons. Even though I’d really love visiting Genovia, I’d like to be in New York with Mia and her friends for some time as well. It would also be so cool to be on her best friend Lily’s cable show. It’d also be great to see Michael’s band perform. What to do in Genovia? Well, I could go to super cool and classy balls and dress up all fancy and eat weird yet very fancy foods.
There’s not all that many fictional places listed here, but I still had fun making this list! It would be extremely expensive, but good thing that there’s absolutely no budget to speak of here! I can’t believe that we’ve almost reached the end of this blogging extravaganza. It’s been fun to do, even though I’ve missed more of the posts than I probably should have. The posts that I have done however, have been fun to do anyway.
