After we left Hogwarts we wound our way back down to the village of Hogsmeade. A quaint little village, where there is snow on the buildings all year round.
Our first stop was to wet our whistles with some delicious butter beer.
And it was delicious (as it tastes like butterscotch, which I adore!), but oh-so-very-sweet. In fact, we all shared one and that was more than enough for me. Alas, it is non-alcoholic. Cut the sweetness and create it in alcoholic form and I would probably drink it by the bucketload. #justsaying
My favorite store in the village–actually, probably in the park–was Honeyduke’s. Being a sugar fiend aside, it was a bright and colorful store, very quaint. I had to restrain myself from literally purchasing everything, except for vomit & boogie flavored beans, Bertie Botts can keep those!
We spent a bit more time wandering around Hogsmeade and peaking into various places, like the Three Broomsticks (but too full from butter beer to eat anything!). All too soon, it was time to make our way back to the platform to take the train back to London…
