Diagon Alley

A year and a half ago I visited the Harry Potter World at Universal Studios Florida. At that point I had only vague recollection of Harry Potter from the movies, as I was never an avid fan. Nonetheless I was blown away by how immersive it was, the attention to every last detail, the sounds, the sights, the smells(!), the scale of it.

Well, I just finished reading “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”, and all the memories of that trip came rushing back. Only now do I fully appreciate how great a job they’ve done at Universal Studios. The whole experience feels like walking through the pages of the book alongside Harry and Hagrid on their first trip to Diagon Alley. It truly is a magical place ❤️

Blue Kingdom

During (way overdue) cleanup of my hard drive, I uncovered a couple of photos from Disneyland from last year. Some turned out really well! I only had one day for sightseeing, so had to decide which park to visit, and landed on Magic Kingdom. Aside from “The Happiest Place on Earth” message being pushed a little too hard at times (or maybe it’s just the Grinch in me), the whole experience was really fun and immersive — 10/10 would go again!

Photo Challenge: Liquid

This weeks photo challenge prompt – liquid – got me a bit by surprise, but when I started digging thorough my hard drive I found this pic. One of the rare decent photos from a plane – Øresund Bridge between Malmo and Copenhagen.
