TGIF is a weekly meme hosted by the amazing Ginger at GReads!
This week she wants to know:
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!
I love summer vacations and I am sorry to say that there is no such thing planed for this summer. I will, as every year, spend some days with my mum in London to attend a Quilt Show in Birmingham and enjoy London but that is my summer vacation for this year.
If I could travel anywhere I want I would pick the setting from Under the Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes or from Juliet by Anne Fortier. I know, how creative! I could pick Narnia, Hogwarts or the Inkworld and I pick Italy, which is right around the corner and an existing country.
But I love Italy and especially Tuscany. It’s been too long since I last have been there and I would love to wander the streets of Florence, Siena or eat the best Pizza Tonno at the piazza in Volterra. I long for a warm day spend in a garden sitting in the shade of an olive tree reading or staring at the pine trees that surround me. There is nothing more claming for me than the Tuscan landscape and I fall in love with this countryside every time the sun goes down and everything around you starts to shimmer in this golden light.
So that is why I would immediately pick Tuscany as my place to be and maybe to stay – forever!
