Harry Potter Tour of London and Beyond – Part Two

Day Two: School of Wandcraft AirBNB Experiences is an amazing platform, and I’ve used it before to have a more authentic experience in the cities I’ve visited since it was launched. I was sure that the London list would be extensive, and I was right. HP-themed tours and activities abound, but one stood out from...

Harry Potter Tour of London and Beyond – Part One

Day One: Kings Cross Before we left, I decided on a balance between organised walking tours (official and non-official), and self-guided rambles around well-known HP sites.

Harry Potter Tour of London and Beyond 2019

Like any committed Potterhead, I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I read The Philosopher’s Stone. I was sick. Really sick. Stay-home-from-work-and-try-not-to-die sick.

P.S. I Love You, Ireland.

Raw, honest travel blog. I spent two weeks in Ireland over Christmas in 2017. My goodness, the people are wonderful — funny, warm and welcoming. They spoke a lot. A lot a lot. They were very skilled at making short stories long, and I loved every moment spent with the people I met. The young...
