Somehow I accidentally purchased the Deluxe package for the Harry Potter Studio Tour when I went to London, U.K. The cost was £199.00 and included entry to the studio with a private two hour guided tour, reserved parking, a souvenir guidebook, a Butterbeer, four free photographs and a video at one of our photo opportunities and a choice of hot meal and drink, as well as private opportunities for photos with sets that were not available with the standard entry ticket. Every part of this experience was worth the adventure to see the sets and magic that went into making these films.

Traveling alone to another country is always an adventure. I always have my camera and tripod, and people always look at me like I'm crazy.

Creatures of the night(aka that's me)! As a software developer, I usually know that projects rarely ever work perfectly on the first try, which means I felt like Dr. Frankenstein when my bat wings turned out witchly perfect on the first try!!
