When planning our Florida holiday, we always knew as it was such a long way to go for a week that it would make sense to have two weeks. We toyed with the idea of spending both weeks in Orlando but decided that it would be too much. My Dad suggested travelling to another country for a week and eventually it was settled that we would go to the Bahamas! It was only a 50 minute flight from Florida on the day and it was so strange to end up at in a country that is so very different from America!

During my trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter which you can read about here, I was faced with several Harry Potter themed shops in both Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley. Now there was no chance I wasn’t going to be leaving America without anything in my suitcase!

Before I start this post, I thought it would be wise to give my love of Harry Potter some context. My first experience was actually with the films. When the Philosophers Stone was released in 2001, I was eight years old and probably one of the last people to go along and see the film, I really wasn’t that bothered. But coming out of the cinema with my Dad, I was absolutely hooked and immediately wanted to read all the books. I think there were only about four out at that point, but borrowing them from a friend I flew through with them, drinking up every word from J.K who quickly became one of my favourite authors and dreaming of getting my Hogwarts letter.
