10 Places I Want to See Before Dystopian Times
By Lisa T. Bergren

Now, I’m not sure that we’ll ever see “dystopian” times like we read about in novels, but writing one of those novels has made me think long and hard about what I’d miss. And one thing is travel.

I ran a travel blog for a time and have been blessed to go to a lot of places for research—a definite perk to being a writer! Exploration, seeing new lands and meeting new people has always been a thrill for me.

If we lived in dystopian times, I imagine that anything beyond where I could get to myself on foot or by horseback would be outside my capabilities. So I figure I’d better get to these locations soon. You know. Just in case.

1. Bora Bora: Ever since I saw “South Pacific” I’ve longed to go to a beautiful tropical isle with others in view across crystalline waters. If we don’t enter dystopian times before I turn 50, I’m dragging my husband there to celebrate (not that it’d be hard).

2. The Cotswolds, England: Cute little homes with thatched roofs? Ancient cathedrals? Winding roads across verdant hills past places like Stonehenge? Yeah, I’m intrigued.

3. The West Coast of Italy: From the top, near Cinque Terre, all the way down through the Amalfi Coast. I wouldn’t mind hitting the boot on the east coast either, but I’m not sure funds would last that long.

4. Western France: I want to see that cool castle/town that is perched on an island, plus a lot of lovely countryside around it.

5. Switzerland/Austria: “Sound of Music” made me hope to see this land from which my paternal great-grandfather hailed. And I have a thing for towering, snow-capped mountains.

6. New Zealand: My dad was an airline pilot and he said out of all the places he ever went, it was his favorite. “Lord of the Rings” movies shot there made me fall in love with the idea of it anew.

7. Turkey: Istanbul. Enough said? And I’d love to see the western coast too, where Paul stopped off.

8. Chile/Argentina: In particular, Patagonia. See reference, above, to towering mountains. They look radically rugged and wild.

9. Morocco: Warm, exotic streets to wander through, spicy food, and the adobe contrasted with the blue sea… *sigh*

10. Kenya: I want to go on a safari, but a high-class safari, complete with the luxurious lodging that is disguised in tents. Yeah, I know. I’d better save my money…

Thank you so much, Lisa, for that great Top 10!
