Jonathan Harker travels to Transylvania to assist Count Dracula with a real estate purchase. He finds the Count sleeping in a coffin, and almost being bitten by Dracula's companions, he runs for his life.

"The next morning, after he witnesses Dracula's coffin being transported outside the castle on its way to England, Jonathan escapes the castle by climbing down the wall."

His travels bring him next to a foreign hospital where everyone, including Jonathan himself thinks he's crazy.

He ends up back in Transylvania, chasing Dracula with a vengeance.

"it is not until they have chased Dracula from London to Transylvania that Jonathan gets his chance. He decapitates Dracula with a knife."

Hello.

I interpret your question to mean "Where did Gulliver's Travel end?" Johnathan Swift is the author of Gulliver's Travels. If my interpretation is incorrect, please restate the question with more information.

I advise all readers with this question to look particularly at chapters 11 and 12 in Part IV of the travels. Gulliver has returned to England and is reflecting on his journeys with the Lilliputians, Brobdingnags, Houyhnhnms, and other characters he encountered along the way.

Perhaps his travel ends in a reflective state of mind more than anything. I will leave you with more questions to ponder: Do you think Gulliver continues to travel after England? If so, where? Why?

To directly answer your question, at the end of the novel, Gulliver is in England. Enjoy the read.
