I was raised with Harry Potter and I will die holding onto my loving memories of this dear friend. Harry’s, among many other characters’ throughout the series, continually impact my outlook on life to this day. You may not feel the same, and that is okay. I respect your differences, please respect mine.

My Magical Journey to Hogwarts

 

I was very excited to get to the Warner Brother Studio in London so that I could go back to visit my old friends and Hogwarts!

Just to say I’d seen the shop, I stopped by Borgin and Burkes.

Since I had the chance, I decided to stop by the Ministry.

While wandering down the halls of the Ministry I got an uneasy feeling. I didn’t realize what was causing it until I accidentally walked into Dolores Umbridge’s office.

Umbridge was not happy about the unexpected visitor. Instead of punishing me, she sent me to take a letter to the Malfoy Manor since she was too busy to deliver it herself. To my dismay, I took the letter to the Malfoy Manor and walked in on an uncomfortable dinner party.

I managed to escape the Malfoy Manor unseen and I apparated to the Burrow as fast as I could.

Mr. and Mrs. Weasley were surprised to see me but welcomed me in and asked what had happened. After I explained, they helped me get my luggage and took me to King’s Cross Station.

Despite having snacks on the train, I was very hungry. Lucky for me, dinner was just being served in the Great Hall.

After dinner I stopped by my common room to pick up a few items that I was planning to put in the Room of Requirement.

With my junk dropped off in the Room of Requirement, I decided to visit Hagrid before my Care of Magical Creatures class.

My Care of Magical Creatures class was illuminating. I wanted the class to be longer but unfortunately I still had to go to my Potions class.

Slughorn visited Snape’s class! I took a picture with Slughorn, but Snape was displeased. I was thankful I had Quidditch practice after Potions.

Since I’d had an eventful day, I decided that it was time to go to bed.

I had an amazing day at Warner Bros. Studios Harry Potter. It was well worth the cost and I spent 5 and a half hours wandering around the tour. I’m so grateful that I got to experience the studios and that I could take pictures. I hope that all of you reading this, and that all other Harry Potter fans, will get to experience this at some point in your life as well. Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed the pictures.
