Believe or not, there are other things to do in Universal Studios other than Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade/Hogwarts. So after taking the Hogwarts Express back to London, we wandered around other parts of the park. As timing would have it, we found ourselves a spot on the curb just in time for the afternoon parade. After … Continue reading Universal Studios
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.
