This would absolutely have to be a world that is rich with magic.

Of course the world of Harry Potter would be the dream. If I could have gone to Hogwarts...*happy dream sigh*.

I would also love to visit the world of the fae from The Bitterbynde Series, by Cecilia Dart-Thornton, because it feels like such a rich, vibrant world filled with magic and wonder. I would float weightless through the air and gorge myself on all of the amazing food and wine (I know, I know, once you taste the food of faerie you can never return home, but one can dream). And just like that I'm off to re-read The Ill Made Mute.(less)
