Get the Thursday Thirteen code here!

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. It’s easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!

Of course some of those places are imaginary! That's what makes the idea of going there so delish!

Happy TT, and if you ever need a travel companion, call me!

Beck said...

Fun list! I have a book-inspired travel list in my heart, too.

Christine d'Abo said...

I'm actually going to PEI next week. My husband's family is having a big family reunion there. I'll take some pictures for you. :)

ERiCA said...

I'm always open to travel, too! (And some of your imaginary places are also on *my* list!)

I've only hit #9 and #10 on your list...

What a great way to talk about where you would like to go. Never thought about it that way before! I'm influenced by books all the time, just never put it down on paper! Thanks for sharing - LC

Annie said...

What a great list, many of those would be on my own list as well.

Hope you have a great Thursday, Alyssa!

Vicki said...

I'd so love to visit some of the same places.

You know the saying about Great minds thinking alike...wait till you read my TT. Not quite the same as yours but oh so close. :)

Stacy said...

I believe a Hogwarts theme park is being built, so you might get your wish! I'd be all for visiting Prince Edward Island.

Ava Rose Johnson said...

I'd love to visit Prince Edward Island and find Avonlea.

Ireland and Hogwarts, definitely! And Prince Edwards Island, and ...

You know what? There's a whole lot of the world I'm still dying to see.

Happy TT!

Oh, this is fun! I'm currently reading an Amelia Peabody book, and I really, really want to go to Egypt. :)
