An Adventure Awaits

Hello world, Karen here! For the last decade, Ryan and I have been obsessing over the Harry Potter world that we have grown up in. Dreaming at a young age of visiting the magical world we have only read about in books and seen on screen, we decided it was time to go experience the magic for ourselves! The last year we have been creating the Harry Potter Lover’s dream itinerary across the British Isles. Living in the United States and having never traveled to Europe before, we are extremely excited to see what inspired Jo Rowling into writing such beautiful books and creating a world of magic that has captivated the hearts of millions around the world.

After planning a trip through the British Isles, Ryan and I realized that there is so much more to discover about the magical world that Harry lives in. After reading closely through the series for the nth time and studying Rowling’s deep knowledge of the magical world, we realized that we can hang out with dangerous Horntails in Hungary, travel with trolls in Poland, and learn all about vampires in the Black Forest ofΒ Germany. The knowledge that Jo holds about the magical world goes beyond the Harry Potter books alone. Through the notes left behind about the wizarding world, we are able to embark on a journey across all of Europe and see more than the movies have shown us.

Character cut-outs of the trio have been created to accompany us on our journey! Join Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ryan and I as we travel across 14 different countries and look at Europe through Rowling’s eyes.

  5. Sounds fantastic, I’m so jealous (in a nice way). I’ll be following your travels on here.
    I wrote part of my first book in the Elephant Cafe in Edinburgh. JK wrote much of Harry Potter there so it’s worth the visit to sit where she sat if you can fit it into your plans.

      • Edinburgh is great, maybe you’ll bump into JK while you’re there. She also finished HP7 at the Balmoral and had meetings about the theme park at the Caledonian Hotel. I’m so excited for you guys, I’m going to follow your travels with keen interest.
