I’m a bit of a homebody, but if I had a travel partner, here’s where I’d like to go.
I want to meet Melina Marchetta and drive around to all the places that look like Jellicoe.

Stop in at the “Bird and Baby” to imagine I’m part of the Inklings.
Wherever they filmed the Naboo scenes from Star Wars.
Anywhere. Everywhere. Especially during the polar night– all that purple! I’d like to explore Fairbanks, where my characters in Truest lived.
Specifically, Arctic Resort Kakslauttanen. Glass igloo + Northern Lights? Heck yes.
I’ve been to #2. They have a framed letter on the wall above the fireplace signed by Tolkien (J.R.R and Christopher), C. S. Lewis, and other inklings.
I did not know they filmed Naboo scenes in Italy! That makes me want to go even more now!
