A Day At: The Making Of Harry Potter Tour, London

Growing up in the Harry Potter era, there was absolutely no question about it, I had to visit the Warner Brothers Studio Tour London: The Making Of Harry Potter whilst I was visiting London. Admittedly, I was a huge Harry Potter fan since the release of the first book (when I was only 10 years old) and still am to this day at age 22. I’d read all about the props, sets, costumes and audio guide featured in the tour and could not wait to experience this studio tour for myself.

Review: Clink78 Hostel, London

While usually my travel companions and myself prefer to stay in hotels with private rooms, sometimes, travel doesn’t go to plan. In 2012, due to unforeseen circumstance, our accommodation plans in London fell through… 2 days before departing Australia. Thanks to our amazing travel agent and my travel buddy’s mum, we were able to secure last-minute accommodation at the Clink 78 Hostel in Kings Cross, London for the 2 of us for 8 nights.

Where would I recommend? Funny you should ask! Continue reading
