5 Fictitious Places I Wish Existed

Let me tell you how this post came in to being. I was dying on the exercise bike, hating the physical activity and watching The Simpsons when the episode where Homer thinks up Chocolate Land came on. I looked at Chocolate Land and was like, I could kill for chocolate right now. I wish this existed, which lead me to think about all the other wonderful places that exist in books and TV but not in real life. Here are 5 I wish I could visit right now.


Chocolate Land - Homer's Imagination, The Simpsons

This was the first one that started it off. It's when he bites that lamppost. Imagine walking down the street and just eating everyday thinks like that? I mean, I probably wouldn't be walking at this point because when it comes to chocolate I just can't help myself. But still. A world of chocolate and fudge and marshmallows is too good, somebody make it a reality please?


Hogwarts - Harry Potter series

I mean, no doy. As soon as you ask the question "what places do you wish existed in real life" Hogwarts just leaps out of the depths of your mind immediately, right? I want to be a witch, and have a pet cat and ace my charms and worry over my O.W.L.S and frollic with centaurs and swim with merpeople. I love you, J.K. I do, but you are the cruellest person for dangling this wonderful place in front of me and not making it a real place to visit. Or am I truly just a muggle?


The Land of Ooo - Adventure Time

Sometimes I feel Jake is my spirit animal, and if he can go out on adventures and get up to all kinds of exciting things in Ooo then I would give it a go too. I love all of the kingdoms, honestly I couldn't see myself settling down in one place - I want to see them ALL. And I want to make my arms do the wiggly thing

The Shire - Middle Earth

Okay, yes, The Shire technically exists. And yes, I've visited it. But let me tell you a secret, those hobbit holes aren't real. No hobbits live there. I want the real deal. I want to be a hobbit. Spend time reading and gardening (like, I'm not even a green thumb but it looks so relaxing?) then heading to the pub in the evening to drink and be merry. I fell out with Matthew over this, because he would rather Rivendell exists. True, it's beautiful and elves are great but hobbits have that way of life that is best suited to me if we're being honest.



Parks & Recreation office / Dunder Mifflin - The Office

This is probably the saddest one, of all the fictitious places I could dream into existance I wish there were offices exactly like in Parks & Recreation or The Office, with quirky characters and fun mishaps. Never have I wanted to work for government more when I watch Parks, and who knew paper could be such a sellable product? It's probably more for the people, and the fact that they don't look like they work a lot. But if these places existed I would be applying for jobs there ASAP.

What places do you wish existed?

  1. I have to say this now. I have never come across a blog that I felt straight away was like fate. You seem like the kind of girl I could be best friends with...is that weird?ok yeah it is a bit haha. Sorry if I make you feel like you want to get a restraining order against me.I promise I'm not dangerous! I love the idea of chocolate land and would not be able to resist, I would also like to live in the Sugar Rush kingdowm from Wreck It Ralph because who wouldn't?! I love your writing style and how you come across as quirky and generally lovely. Now a new follower! :)

    1. This might be the nicest comment to exist in the universe, are you sure you meant it for my blog? ;) thank you so much, this is actuall so lovely (I've been way down in the dumps about the blog recently) but yeah. Sugar rush kingdom would be amazing! Oh my god, and then transporting to other games would legit be an option too!

  3. Why can't real life office jobs be like Parks and Rec??? That would be so amazing. I would be right there with you working and loving it and being quirky and amazing all the time. I've always wondered what people who really DO work in office situations think of these shows haha. And absolutely about Hogwarts. Who WOULDN'T want to go there?! Though I'm not gonna lie, I'd miss pens and pencils....I never really got the whole quill thing. So inefficient.

    1. I think I want an office job because of the illusion it will be that fun. My dad works in an office and never tells me quirky fun stories (unless he's like the Ron Swanson of the office?) but I definitely need to get his opinion on that. OMG Pens and pencils! I would miss them too, I'm so bad with quills, even fake ones.

    1. Where I work it's almost as good banter wise but everyone is too focused on actual work to be either of these places D:

  6. Love this post! I haven't seen the episode with Chocolate Land but, wowsers, it looks good. I 100% agree with Hogwarts, of course. (Though only if I was a witch, and it was post-Voldemort era!) ;) xx

    1. But post-Voldemort era is Dumbledore-less and Snape-less :'( but it would be SO MUCH SAFER! And Chocolate Land is fantastic, it's literally just a 4 minnute dream Homer has but I want it to be real so badly

  7. Chocolate land and Hogwarts are definitely on my list of better places to be right now! Such a lovely, original post xx
