An Ideal Setting

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Maybe you can’t travel wherever you most want to go. You may not be able to take time off. And the costs of an exotic, long-haul trip are beyond many of our budgets. But in books, you can travel anywhere!

You can immerse yourself in a new culture, learn a little of the language, and see sights that are, in reality, thousands of miles away.

I am at the early planning stage for my next travel-themed mystery. The first big decision will be where to set the story. There are so many interesting places to visit, not to mention all the wonderful places I’ve already been, but would they make a great setting for a mystery?

Ideally the setting should have interesting history or folklore and a language other than English. But the main criteria is that it must have some great sights and activities for the teenage main character to explore.

The previous stories were set in Japan and Costa Rica. I know, I’ve set the bar fairly high!

Which location do you think would make an amazing mystery setting? Please leave a comment if you have an idea you’d like to share.
