- Flying. Fairies fly graciously, witches fly fast and the skies reflect the busyness of the magical world accurately. The skies clear quickly though if dragons turn up. Funny that.
- Colours are brighter and more vivid than anything seen on Earth. This can give the more sensitive a headache as their eyes get used to this brightness though a decent set of sunglasses can at least reduce the glare a bit. Be warned.
- The countryside is very similar to that found in the Highlands of Scotland, Norway, New Zealand and so on so visitors from Earth should be made to feel more at home in the magical realm by this. However midges are the least of your problems here. Think dragons, ogres and so on. (There's no preventative cream you can rub off to prevent these turning up either).
- The Queen's Palace is a magnificent building. There are no grand tours but you can see the turrets for miles. The Fairy News Network show programmes about life in the Palace every so often so this gives glimpses behind the scenes. The Queen only holds garden parties for her own staff.
- All magical beings rush around so tourists must learn quickly not to get in the way and to not be fazed by this.
When visiting the Fairy Kingdom, the tourist should look out for the following:-
I'm Allison Symes and I write novels, short stories as well as some scripts and poems. I love setting my work in my magical world, the Fairy Kingdom, and my favourite character is Eileen, who believes hypocrisy is something that happens to other people without caring that statement is hypocritical in itself! Eileen is huge fun to write for and about.
