Top Ten List of Favourite Travels by Paula Altenburg
As an adult I’ve been incredibly lucky to be able to do some traveling. But likewise, as a child, I was fortunate to spend a lot of time traveling through books. Therefore, I’m dividing my list into two – places I’ve traveled in fact, and the places I’ve gone to in fiction.
Here they are, in no particular order:
Fiction. If you’ve been to Narnia for real, I want to meet you.
Fiction. I loved reading about the mythology and the ruins, and it’s on my bucket list.
Fact. It’s full of history, and it’s the home of the European Parliament – the old city is gorgeous. I saw the best parade ever in this city, too. Gay Pride knows how to party.
Fiction. I’d love to see it for real, but happy to see it through fiction.
Fact and fiction. Beautiful city, although its perspective of the French Revolution seemed a bit different than what I’d read about in A Tale of Two Cities and The Scarlet Pimpernel. I also don’t believe Jean Valjean really wandered those sewers. The smell would have killed him.
Fact. My husband’s a local. The Red Light District is pretty dull during the day.
Fact. My sister lived there for seven years. It has the most beautiful beaches in the world.
Fiction. Damn it.
9. The Swiss Alps
Fiction. I loved Heidi and Heidi Grows Up when I was 6.
Fiction. King Solomon’s Mines, to be specific. I really, really want to be able to say I’ve been chased by cannibals.
Thank you, Paula!!
