Living in a Fictional World

I've never really wanted to live in a fictional world.

I wouldn't mind a guided tour of Terry Pratchett's Discworld (as long as it wasn't by Rincewind and Twoflower. See The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic for more on why!).

I'd love to visit Middle Earth from Tolkein's The Lord of the Rings, though I would give Mordor a miss.

And I never had the slightest inclination to follow Alice down the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland, Even as a kid, I thought that was a daft idea, though I loved the story itself.

Incidentally is this just me or was Alice either incredibly gullible or greedy? Whenever she saw signs saying Eat Me or Drink Me, she'd just do so. Never thought to question it and then wondered why she suddenly shot up in height etc. (I refuse to believe saying that is a plot spoiler, not after this length of time). Oh well...

I loved the Famous Five by Enid Blyton so a good nose around Kirrin Island would suit me. (I always thought of Kirrin Island whenever I've visited Brownsea Island, just off Poole Harbour. It's the sort of place the Five would visit).

So if there was a fictional world you would visit, which would it be and why?
