My London Trip!

Our 2017 summer vacation this year was London, England. I was pretty excited!

First stop was Stonehenge!

 

Second stop was Legoland. This was for my daughter. I absolutely hate pretty much all theme parks. I hate standing in lines because all it does is make me feel claustrophobic. Needles to say… she loved it! I did, however, love the miniature version of the city that was build entirely out of legos! Amazing!

 

Drove around the city some!

 

Next stop was Bodiam Castle which was my favorite! This castle had me at moat. I also need that barn owl!

 

The British Library is A+. I scored my one and only souvenir because hey it’s Mr. Darcy. I am not a big souvenir fan at all!

 

Next stop was to check out the actual Harry Potter film set. Again for my daughter, but it was freaking great!

 

Overall, minus the traffic, it was thoroughly awesome! I am already ready for our next family vacation next year!

Movie Review: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

fantastic

IMDB Summary: 

The adventures of writer Newt Scamander in New York’s secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school.

 

My Review:

So, I still have only actually read the first two Harry Potter books. I am also not even a big fan of most of the movies, but this one looked really good. My daughter wanted to see it, so that meant I had to take her to see it.

I actually really enjoyed it, and it was awesome seeing all the creatures especially when the characters would go inside of Newt’s briefcase. I loved Eddie Redmayne’s character Newt and how he was adorably awkward. Tina and her sister were awesome, Credence was creepy, but Kowalski stole the show! Kowalski was hilarious!

The movie itself had a lot of darkness to it that kept me hooked. Colin Farrell once again had a terrible haircut, as he does in all of his movies. I should have looked at the casting list because I didn’t realize Johnny Depp was in it… I am so tired of seeing him!

There was loads of action, the special effects were amazing, and overall it is a must see even if you aren’t a big Harry Potter fan.
