My Hogwarts Experience

Hogwarts is a key part of my journey to adulthood.  Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows remains to be the only book where I had to wait for a bookstore to open.  So it is pure magic that in my 30 years of existence, I had the opportunity to visit Hogwarts twice through reading and traveling.

Traveling

Hogwarts

Universal Japan (January 2015) and Universal Orlando (October 2013)

Reading

I finished re-reading the complete series last 13 January 2016.  I learned a lot of new things about the characters’ journeys and found some hidden clues I missed before.

Hermione Granger remains my favorite character with Dobby and Severus Snape as my other choices.  My heart ached the most for Sirius Black. Happiest for Neville’s transformation.

The Prince’s Tale is my favorite chapter.  Hard choice between Prizoner of Azkaban and Order of the Phoenix as my favorite book in the series.

Hogwarts holds a special place in my heart.  Looking forward to another trip some time in the future.

Thank you JK Rowling.
