Snapshots of Hogsmeade

After reading all the books and watching all the films I anxiously awaited the opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. Finally, the big day came and…I didn’t go. As much as I love me some Potter I really don’t like crowds. So I decided to wait until the furor died […]

Visiting From Coraline to Kubo: A Magical LAIKA Experience at Universal Studios

Somethings I’ve loved as a kid I’ve long moved on from (Micro Machines and English Toast Pizza I hardly knew ya) but somethings I love to this day. Like animated films. Ever since my first viewing of Snow White as a toddler I’ve enjoyed them. Whether hand drawn, computer generated or stop motion I find […]

Ghost Town at Knott’s Berry Farm

Until recently, I hadn’t visited Knott’s Berry Farm since I was a teenager. But, as you know, I spent New Year’s Eve there. It was interesting to visit after so many years.
