 Today is Road Trip Wednesday 🙂 RTW is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.

This week´s topic: In honor of the release of Kirsten’s WANDERLOVE yesterday–which is amazing, by the way; get yourselves to a bookstore if you haven’t!–we bring you a travel-themed RTW prompt today! If you could wander anywhere in the world, where would it be, and why?

If you´re planning on reading WANDERLOVE soon, you should join in Tracey´s wonderful YA Book Club as it is the pick for March 😀

Now, onto the question…where would I go?

A castle about 25 minutes away from my small village

First I would not go alone, I´d take my hubby with me 🙂

We would go to my “home” in France. It is pretty. It´s a small village an hour north from Paris, it does have beautiful landmarks around it (see example above) but the reason why I would wander there is simple: we´d spend time with my family, have coffee at my grandmother´s, have breakfast with my parents, go to the movies with my sisters and brother-in-law, spend time with my niece and nephew…see my aunts, give a call to my friends…maybe even pass by my old High school to go visit the teacher who influenced my love for languages.

We would also wander back to the US, again to visit our dear friends…

Now, if we´re talking about a place I´d like to visit: Italy…I´d like to see for Tuscany, Rome, Pompeii…

Where would YOU go? 🙂

    It would be fun taking my family on a tour of Europe with you and your hubby. After all, between the two of you, you could communicate with just about anyone we’d meet between France and Russia, so we’d never get lost. 😉

  2. I’d love to go castle hopping throughout Europe. I’ve always been fascinated by them but the closest thing we have to a castle around here is Lower Fort Garry, a local historic site. It’s basically a stone wall with log buildings inside it and not very big, at that. Castles with thick walls and turrets and secret passageways have always been the stuff my dreams were made of. (I love the pic of the one near you, by the way!) 🙂

  3. Yeah, the husband has to come on my wanderings, too 🙂 I’ve wandered without him, and it’s not nearly as much fun.

    Italy would be a fun spot. I’ve been to Rome, but I really want to see the rest of the country. Seems like Tuscany is really what everyone thinks of when they think of Italy, you know?

    Your hometown area looks stunning, btw.

    I’d love to visit France again and Italy too. I’ve been to Paris, Calais, and Venice, but I’d love to revisit them and add a pile more to the list (Normandy, Florence, Tuscany, Rome…). Oh to have the money and time, right? 😀

    Ireland, for sure. I’ve never been but I’m half Irish. I would love to rent a little cottage on a cliff overlooking the sea for six months or a year. And all I would do would be write and write and write and write.

    I love France and would love to see the north– I’ve spent (lots) of time in the Bordeaux region for work, but never really seen the rest of the country. That castle is lovely!
