(We got to see some Diagon Alley construction, as they gear up to create the Gringott's addition to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.)
I remember a time when I dreamed of this moment. That I could experience the world within a world that I read about for years; the place I always escaped to; the place that I always wished I would be a part of. Like many children, I often forgot I was just as much a part of it as it was a part of me. For where would this world be without the ones who visited it so often and longed for more? We certainly wouldn't be able to visit now as I have, and many others. There is so much to this world that I got to see firsthand; I'll never forget this trip.
Some highlights to this trip included Moaning Myrtle moaning and whining in the bathroom while I tried to pee, having dinner at the Three Broomsticks, getting Luna Lovegood's wand, getting a Ravenclaw stein, getting a Ravenclaw hat, getting a Ravenclaw journal--all three Ravenclaw things, of which, go with my Ravenclaw scarf that my friend Amber bought me as a graduation gift back in December--drinking butterbeer and pumpkin juice, and, well, everything. Just everything.
Dare I say, it was magical.
