Weekend Adventures

Hello everyone!

So on Saturday I celebrated my friend’s 30th in style! Yes, we went to the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London. Now I will be honest I have been quite a few times but I have not seen the Forbidden Forest or Gringotts bank so I was very pleased to visit and see the new scenes.

I will be honest I am terrified of spiders so the Forbidden Forest was a bit of trial for me but I absolutely loved Gringotts bank and it is possibly my second favourite part because of course the ultimate favourite is the castle at the end which is always rather emotional to behold.

What is everyone’s favourite part of the tour?

Here are a few photos from the day!

A New Challenge

Hello my fellow Book Dragons

I thought I would tell you all about my new challenge. This challenge is entirely self inflicted and I came up with the idea after doing a few free courses on the Open University.

My challenge is to translate and read Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone from Latin to English. So I am in fact reading Harry Potter et Philosophi Lapis.

I am very much a beginner in Latin so I will be using a great deal of this.

So far I have almost finished the first page and I am beginning to pick up pace, after the first sentence took me just over an hour! I am really enjoying it so far, so fingers crossed I get to the end. Who knows I might read the entire series in Latin.

So that is my challenge.

Happy reading
