TGIF: Literary Vacations

TGIF at GReads is a feature for recapping the week’s posts (which I’m skipping this time since I did that yesterday pretty much) and answering a book-blogging question posed by Ginger.

This week the question is: Literary Vacations: If you could take a trip this summer to any place within a fictional book, where would you go? Tell us about your summer dream vacation!

My answer is HOGWARTS from the Harry Potter series!!!  I have always really wanted to go to Hogwarts.  I mentioned the other day that I would be a professional student if I could, so I think that a vacation to a magic school would be right up my alley.  Also, I might have magic talents I don’t even know about yet.  I am eagerly awaiting my field trips to Hogsmeade, classes with Prof McGonagall (who would be one of my favorite teachers because I always love the strict teachers), and time spent exploring the castle and its grounds.  I look forward to the camaraderie of living with my fellow students and goofing off a bit.  And I won’t lie, I am hoping to spend some quality time in the library with some of those crazy wizard books.  I think I’d go down to Hagrid’s for tea every so often, though, I’m not entirely sure I could handle his taste in pets.  Oh, and I wouldn’t mind taking a bubble bath in the Prefect Washroom.  That thing is enormous, but we’d have to figure out a way to keep Myrtle out.  She’s just too depressing.  And since it is a vacation, I am going to forbid any of the bad stuff that happens at Hogwarts from happening.  I mean, no vacation needs Voldemort in it.  Please book me one ticket on the Hogwarts Express, please.

What about you?  What literary vacation would you take?
