Me on the HP staircase!!!
Since I had gone to sleep relatively early, I had no problem getting up early to see Oxford University's Christ Church. When I first walked in I could feel my anticipation rising. At any moment I could walk through a door and BAM! Im at Hogwarts haha. That moment came sooner rather than later. I walked through an archway and there were a set of stairs used in the first two films. I had to wait about 30 minutes to see the grand prize (the dining hall, or great hall in the series), but I think I would have waited 10+ hours haha. When I stepped into the room it was instantly recognizeable. Too bad the ceiling wasn't enchanted though haha. I half expected it to be after seeing the rest of the layout. I don't think they changed much in the film from what it looks like today.

You be the judge...

Wow, I just started following your posts and I have to say you're brave. As an American that is living in Germany the weak dollar is killing us. I'd admire your will to travel to all the great places (that are some of the most expensive) that are not only rich with culture but filled with wonderfully friendly people.

Best wishes on the rest of your journey. Can't wait to read your blogs.
