Fictional Places

Fictional Places I Have Visited

I have visited the forest moon of Endor, roamed the corridors of Hogwarths, lit a pipe in the Shire, and walked through the busy streets in King's Landing.

 

These fictional places often mean more to me emotionally than physical places I have visited. Imagination has no limits and in literature, movies and games; imagination roams free in those realms.. Fictional places also help us look upon our own existence from new angles, or simply a healthy break from contemporary noise.

 

The omnipotent writer or director creates and populates his own worlds. Questions of good and evil, human nature, politics, love and self-realization are brought to life in contexts that obey their own laws. Although the worlds are often descibed in detail, fictional journeys always leave room for your own imagination to do its magic.

The latter is especially true for literature. Reading leaves much more room for individual intepretation than watching movies or playing games because the world is not delievered in full color and high defintion, it is up to you as a reader to fill out the voids using your own imagination. The end result being that the same fictional world can look very different depending on who the recipient/reader is.

Dinotopia

James Guerney's Dinotopia is a marvellous place to visit. Waterfall City is an incedible city where humans and dinosaurs live side by side. The culture is as rich as its libraries and museums.

 

The island has a varied landscape and very varied climate. You can experience anything from warm and tropical to wintry and snow filled.

 

 

 

 

Gotham City

Gotham is the hometown of Bruce Wayne (a.k.a. Batman) in DC Comics fictional world. It is often portrayed as a dark place with high crime rates, yet offers the traveler a lot of beauty and nostalgia.

 

The population of Gotham consist of eccentrics, peculiar individuals with an extravagant sense of fashion and ideas off the beaten track.
