An Azeroth Holiday


Mr B: that’s easy. Howling Fjord. It’s just beautiful. It has mountains. Water. Snow… everything you could want or need. 
For me, it’s not so easy to decide. I suppose it depends what type of holiday you want? Or am I over thinking it? 
I’d love to go sightseeing in somewhere like Thunder Bluff or Orgrimmar. There’s so many cool things to see and do, obviously only ever playing Horde, that I haven’t done. However, how cool would it be to go sightseeing around somewhere like Booty Bay or one of the cute fising villages off the coast. Oh, how about the Panda starting island? I’d love to go back!

For a beach holiday, I think I’d like to go to the nice sandy beaches of Tanaris… I’d be quite happy relaxing there for a couple of days. I love this screenshot of my rogue hanging out on the Isle of Quel’Danas. She’s spent many happy moments admiring the view of the sea.

I’d also really like to visit somewhere in the mountains to do a bit of skiing or relaxing in a cosy cabin – somewhere like Mount Nevrest.

I also wouldn’t mind visiting Nagrand for a safari holiday, or visiting the beautiful rocks and gems in Deepholm. 
Thinking about it, I’d really love to do a tour of Pandaria. I’d visit Jade Forest, enjoy a ride down the river, take part in the sky race and visit the cloud serpents. I’d do a spot of fishing before heading to Halfhill and the market, eating lots of scummy food. Then I would go to Krasarang and have a lovely time on the beach (minus the things trying to kill me of course), then head off to the Shrine for some R&R.


The problem is the same as I face IRL. There are so many amazing, varied placed to visit, I can’t really decide where I would go first. Perhaps a Round-Azeroth-Trip is a good idea?!!

20 Days of WoW – Days 16 and 17

Day 16 – Things you miss (post Cataclysm)

At the risk of sounding philosophical, I am really struggling to find things to talk about for this one. Purely for the reason that nostalgia can often get the better of us and we miss things just because they’re not there any more. 

Cataclysm gave a much needed levelling experience and I actually really enjoyed the changes they made – I felt it was perhaps a little fragmented before this expansion.

I’m afraid I can’t comment – I’ve just about reached my one year birthday!

Day 17 – Your favourite spot (in game or outside it)

Nagrand – I could live there. The scenery is beautiful and the floating rocks are amazing. From the Horde perspective, the storyline is also really interesting, with Garrosh Hellscream entering the picture.

I could babble on and on about my favourite bits in WoW. I do a Picture of the Week which features many of the most beautiful places in the game. I agree with my husband, with Nagrand, I think we could both happily hermit away from the rest of the world in such a lovely place.

However, I also really love the Jade Forest and often find myself circling around enjoying the view and fishing in the pretty lakes. This is similar with Uldum and its desert oases, or Vashj’ir and the beautiful underwater reefs, and finally, Howling Fjord – have you ever just stopped to admire the sky?

I think ultimately, what we both love are the details in the game – from the variable weather to the running water. Perhaps there are more places to discover – let us know which is your favourite place to hang out!
