Hogwarts Express

Slideshow of Hogwarts Express!

Sunday: Today we take the train to Edinburgh for our short stay in Scotland this week. It feels very much like the Hogwarts Express, the magical train to Hogwarts Academy of Witchcraft and Wizardy in the Harry Potter books. It feels like we are typical witches and wizards in London packing up for our studies. We find our Platform 9 ¾ at King's Cross train station and off we go! We have been saving up funky, London candies to have a "candy party" on the train, just like Harry and his friends.

The feeling of being students off to Hogwarts is even more so when we arrive at Dalkeith Castle, a 300-year-old castle where we'll be bunking up.

We settled in our creepy old rooms and then went out to celebrate Chaitra's birthday. Happy Birthday Chai!

Happy Birthday Chaitra!

Back at the castle, a few of us girls watched a movie. Late at night, I explored the castle looking for ghosts, even reading up on the castle's history online to see if I can scare myself!
