London: part 1

August 29, 2012
Even our tickets were awesome! We had our two entrance tickets, two tickets for digital audio guides and two for our souvenir guidebooks.
Here I am, with the first two days in pictures. We went to the Harry Potter studios the first day and practically 75% of all of my pictures was made there. I made a selection of the parts I liked most. We also visited Camden that day, a nice shopping area (it was dress heaven and there were so many beautiful dresses that I couldn't choose and I left emptyhanded, incredible!).

Then, we kind of wasted the second day. We were super bummed out after we got to our hotel the previous night because it was really bad. It was a teenytiny room that wasugly and actually nasty and we had no airconditioning while it was superhot so we had to keep the window open at all times and we slept on the (busy) streetside. I'm a little mad at myself for not doing anything that day but well, we just weren't up for it. All we did was check out Oxford Street. I went into some shops but it just wasn't our day so I didn't buy anything. We got to Waterstones then and we kind of went crazy there (that explains the last picture and there were even more). All we did was read the whole day and in the evening we went out to eat some fish and chips.

Anyway, here are some pictures for you. First a few from Camden, then a lot from Harry Potter Studios and then our second day summarized in one photo, haha. I am sorry for the bad pictures though, I'm actually kind of dissapointed about a lot of them but I still have to learn pretty much everything about my camera. If anyone knows any good websites or books to learn the basics, let me know.

This was a decor in the gift shop, they acutally sold all of that candy. Too bad it was a little pricy because I really wanted to try those Chocolate Frogs and Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans.
The potions classroom was one of my favorites. I loved all of those bottles. Oh and the spoons in these kettles were moving by the way!
This was so dissapointing! I expected so much from Butterbeer, haha. First of all, it costed $6 for a tiny cup so it wasn't even in the typical bottle and it was REALLY disgusting, haha. Some kind of sparkling lemonade with a chemical vanilla topping that made bubbles, ew.
This was another one of my favorites. I absolutely could not capture how beautiful and real it was. It was truly mesmerizing.
This was a huge scale model and it was so beautiful! There were so many details, no way you could see it on a picture.
And then, the sad truth from the second day, haha. But actually, we did have a fun day, just lying next to each other and reading.

  4. glad to hear you had a great time at the HP park minus the buttlebeer. Hate when days travelling are ruined because of a bad night's sleep but still doesn't look like too bad of a day ; ) Really pretty pic of the street btw.
