Welcome to Harry Potter's World

Hey folks,

not a lot of text for you to read today, you can thank my upcoming trip to Istanbul (leaving next Wednesday [5/12/12]) and the doom of my two tests, two essays and one presentation I will have to deal with right after I come back to Canterbury at December 11. Let's just say I've had a wonderful time touring the Harry Potter Studios on Friday together with Daniella, who is just as big of fan as me. Oh, and please never ever try Butterbeer, it's absolutely disgusting!

Lots of love from Canterbury,

There were tons of beautiful paintings but I liked this one the most.

The atmosphere in this room was so beautiful, I wanted to share it with you. Let's just say it brought back a lot of memories and I was actually touched. Stupid film people, they know how to get to you!
