Through the Eyes of a Sorcerer, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter ROCKED.

I GOT A WAND IN REAL LIFE.  I write this before even re-entering the spiral, you all should feel privelaged lol.  I have returned from my week long vacation in sunny Orlando and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.  It pretty much rocked out loud.  I would love to go into details now but I really can't, as my pictures are sitting on my phone and I cannot find my upload cable :(.  Before I could even log in and start the patch I had to repair out internet connection due to the fact that I alone know how to "power cycle" in my house xD.  I'll work on uploads tomorrow, lots of pictures for everyone!  This post will be edited (or I might decide to just add a new post, who really knows at this point) with pictures and information.  This will be my first non-Wizard101 related post EVER and I hope not to make it too much of a habit. 


Let's call this a Fieldtrip from Ravenwood, shall we?  A Fieldtrip to Hogsmeade and Hogwarts!

Here are the pictures and details I promised! There was just so much to see and so little time, and I don't want this post to be TOO terribly lengthy so I am limiting myself to around 20 pictures.  If I don't post something that you DO want to see, please comment on this post and I'll see what I can do!  My pictures of all things Triwizard are on my aunt's camera as my batteries died, so I don't have those...yet.  Here we go!

Hogsmeade/Hogwarts directional arrows.

Flags from the 4 houses of Hogwarts, the backdrop for the Triwizard Spirit Rally and the Frog Choir.

The Butterbeer Keg!!!!!  Butterbeer was amazing, but WAY sweet.  One glass was even tough to get down.

The sweet concoction itself, Butterbeer!!!

The baby Mandrake plants from HP and the Chamber of Secrets.

Oh silly me, you probably wanted HOGWARTS before now!

MY Wand, yes MINE.  I didn't get a "Hero" wand like Harry, Hermione, etc.  This one is not claimed by a character, so I claim it as John Lifeglen's!

Can YOU say Sorting Hat?

The House Competition point hourglasses.  Please note who is in the lead.

We need a sign like this in the commons "Please Respect the Spell Limits".

The Mirror of Erised from HP and the Sorcerer's Stone

The Pensieve from numerous books.

And I will conclude with the following images from Honeydukes and Zonko's.  I was a little depressed when I could not purchase Fizzing Wizzbees, but the Chocolate Frogs, U-No-Poo, Acid Pops, Sugar Quills, and Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans made up for it.  Also, Extendable Ears :D  And in my Chocolate Frog, I got Helga Hufflepuff in trading card form!  OK Here come the pictures!

And on that "hoppy" note, We'll conclude the Fieldtrip to Hogwarts.  I hope you all enjoyed yourselves!  Again, please comment if you want to know any other details or possibly squeeze some other pictures out of me ;). 

Your Friend Always,
John Lifeglen
