Gal on the Go

Well I have been on the go for the past couple of weeks now, hence my internet absence. We headed south determined to see the Harry Potter exhibit in Orlando, Florida. We did it and it was spectacular! Well worth the long line ups. Ok they probably weren't as long as when the exhibit first opened. The weather was overcast and seemed to suit the mood of the place. It was a lot of fun. We went on a ride through Hogwarts that was truly something else. We were flying behind Harry on his broom stick. We ducked out of the way as dragons chased us. We were pursued by dimentors. We even got to play in a quitich game. It was magical.

We headed to Olivanders to buy the right wand. Let me tell you that that is no easy task. There are so many to choose from that one has to be certain which spells they want to wield... We settled on Hermione's wand because she knows the most spells of all!

From there we headed over to the candy shop to buy berty bots every flavoured beans. We didn't get a boggie flavoured one luckily. There were chocolate frogs too but we were afraid that they might escape before we had a chance to nibble on them.

The Harry Potter exhibit was in The Island of Adventure theme park, next to Universal Studios and it did not disappoint. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to that magical land that grew out of the imagination of one very talented woman!

  1. Just tonight I was thinking how much magic JK Rowling brought to our world through her imagination...and she was on the top of my list of gratitude tonight. And then I open your post...more magic. Lucky family to have travelled to Hogwarts! Sam and Bo will have to get out their wands and the hogwarts lego when you was a hogwarts Christmas here, and where you are too it seems ;)
    See you soon,
