My trip across the pond

I don't really know what I was expecting from this trip... maybe a little Harry Potter discussion and the occasional bus tour at the most. I never could have guessed that I would have so much fun and make so many friends in such a short time period while managing to learn even more about the books I love so much. Here's a glimpse into my week in England.

Just the view I woke up to every morning while staying in Oxford. 

The building was beautiful alone, but that tree just blows me away. 

I can't believe this is a college campus.
Harry Potter's great, but visiting The Eagle and Child was a definite highlight for me.

His legacy lives on, probably forever. It's humbling to reflect on death and worth.


"Magic is might"
Here I am, calmly flying over the Quidditch Field.

It's the door to the chamber of secrets. Look at that excitement.

So this was a model of the Harry Potter grounds. It was enormous and really cool.

Julie and I trying our little wizarding outfits on.


The museum had other cool stuff too. 

My last night ended with a view of the Tower Bridge. (And a Jack the Ripper Tour)

Friends. Gotta love em.
Possibly the best thing I saw in England was this little quote in a bookstore. I haven't stopped thinking about it since.
