My trip to Hogsmeade

I'm too old to be geeking out like this. To say I geeked out may even be a bit of an understatement.

My friend Yvonne met me and we went into the Universal Studios Island of Adventures park. Weaving in and out of the other sections of the park, I was looking for one thing: Harry Potter World.

We saw some snakes...

But no Slytherins. 

This guy looked like he was about to have a basilisk come out of his mouth...

But it was a false alarm.
I even thought at one point I saw Dumbledore...

But no such luck. 

We kept following the signs...

And just when I was about to find the Promised Land, Yvonne blindfolded me.
I jumped up and down, happy as a clam and made my way through the amazingness that was Hogsmeade. There were Beauxbaton girls, and Durmstrang boys... Honeydukes (where I got myself a chocolate frog) and the Owlry were packed like any other Hogsmeade weekend, and I nearly died when Moaning Myrtle started yelling at me when I went into the girls' bathroom! They really thought of everything! 

Oh... and if you ever go... make sure to try the Butterbeer. Cheers until later!


  1. I can't even begin to describe my jealousy! I wants to go there soooo bad!

  2. Jealous!!! I want to go so bad! I've been trying to think of a time this year when I can's not looking promising. It looks like you had fun though.
