Getting the opportunity to live overseas is a priceless experience. You get exposure to other cultures, get to try new foods, meet new people, and get the chance to travel to new and exciting places.
When I was living overseas in Australia, I took the time to ensure that I traveled near and far in the region. Throughout the years I visited places like New Zealand, Fiji, and Tasmania (yes, I know it’s part of Australia…). These were such memorable years of my life and I will treasure them forever.
And now that I’m living back in the United States I continue to toy with the idea of one day living in Europe! You could see a new country every month since it’s so easy to get around. Many current and wannabe expats have a bucket list of places they hope to live one day. Here are a few places that, as magical as it would be, will never make its way onto our bucket list and will never get checked off.
Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory
As if you don’t know about this place…
Home to the superhero Thor.
Made famous by the 1933 novel Lost Horizon and synonymous with earthly paradise.
No, not Michael Jackson’s ranch; we’re talking about the home of Peter Pan, Tinker Bell and The Lost Boys.
C.S Lewis’ fantasy world of magic, mythical beasts, and talking animals.
King Arthur’s 12th century castle and court. As Monty Python once said, it’s a rather dull place.
The fictional universe of J.R.R Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
The British school of magic from J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter book and movie series.
A musical in which two American tourists stumble upon Brigadoon, a mysterious Scottish village which appears for only one day every hundred years.
