Reflecting back on my trip to Walt Disney World, also sparked my memories of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Last year I organized a meetup of Harry Potter cosplayers to hang out at the Universal Studios park based in Los Angeles, CA. The Hollywood park is smaller than the Orlando park, but it is […]

40 Magical Photos from Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World opened on October 1 in 1971. The property covers nearly 25,000 acres and only half of it has been used! Shocking based on the fact that it’s already HUGE! I spent three full days there and wasn’t able to cover it all! I was unable to make it to Hollywood Studios or the […]

Visiting the Fairytale Castle Chateau Pierrefonds

Chateau Pierrefonds

My favorite place in France has to be Chateau Pierrefonds! I just absolutely adored visiting this fairytale castle! It costs a pretty penny to get there, but it is worth it. There is no train directly to the town it’s located in so you have to take a train to the closest station, then take […]
