The Shire. It may not have  a lot of adventure, but’d be a good place to rest, take strolls, and sleep on the roof. I’m 5’7, a tad shorter than Gandalf’s 5’11, but claustrophobia issues send me outside. But it’s probably a good place to camp anyways.

Fangorn Forest. Humans, elves, and hobbits alike leave this place alone. It’s the perfect place to get away from bipedeals. 

The Unseen City: Lazlo’s dream city sounds like it has a thriving commerce, but I’d prefer to dig out the library in the real version. Sidenote: Strange The Dreamer is wonderful, but Muse Of Nightmares is a dragging disappointment.

Hogwarts: Y’all know why I want to go here. You probably went here with me.

Baz’s House: Baz is the Simon Snow version of Malfoy. And it’s freaking ginormous. 

Christopher McCandless

Alex Supertramp bus: The only real place on this list! Alex Supertramp gave up the trappings of society and lived in this bus, and died in this bus, in 1992. Follow the Alaskan Stampede trail as documented in Into The Wild to his memorial.

Mirtha Y Marta: This is a freaking sinking cemetery in Gentleman’s Guide To Vice And Virtue. It’s likely based on Camiguin, a Spanish cemetery that sank during Mt. Vulcan’s eruption of 1870’s.  

The world palace in They Both Die At the End: I don’t remember the exact name, but if you read it, you would know what I mean. It’s a garden/ food tour of the planet, designed so that people that die young can experience the world, but I reckon that people dying at any time would enjoy it.

221b Baker St: This is my home. Are you kidding me?

Honorable Mention: Winchester Bunker. Which is also my home.
