Departing to Hogwarts

Another one (and hopefully) serving as the finale of my British Summer Days travel journal. I've been having such a wonderful times retelling some of my travel highlights for my first time ever in Great Britain.

I had the best days ever in my life to be literally super honest. :}

And now I'm crying because I can't wait for another visit. :'(

You might ever notice in my earlier post about my mere motivation coming to the UK for the first time is because I am preparing for my higher study in London next spring. Even though I still have plenty of months doing some house renting jobs and adapting myself to the new city, I really, really can't help but having a trip this summer.

One early morning, I took a walk with my mum toward King's Cross Station. I've been longing to visit King's Cross just because... Harry Potter (again and again and again, haha! Seriously Harry Potter shaped 100% of my childhood). It's the place where the famous Platform 9 3/4 were located; the place where Hogwarts Express will take you to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry!

Rumour has it that JK Rowling's parents met while they were on their train to Scotland. Hence, the sole reason why she chose the station for the Hogwarts students to embark for their study. And oh my, how I can relate myself with The King's Cross Station. I tried to walk to my (future) campus, and it took me around 15 minutes walking via King's Cross. :'(

I don't know. I felt like being a future Hogwarts student, but it will be on next January and I'll be going to Central Saint Martins rather than the real Hogwarts. Still, I never stop believing that someday my Hogwarts acceptance letter will come. Haha!

Anyway, do you have any studying abroad (especially in London) stories? Please let me know! :}

You find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford. –Samuel Johnson
See you in a few months for some another exciting adventures, London! (and hopefully, all across the UK, or even Europe?)


  1. Batanya beneran bagus ce :o #nosarcasm

  2. It's always hard parting away from your trip! London looks super neat and I love the architecture of their buildings! Glad to see you enjoying your time out there :). This makes me want to go book a trip to experience some amazing scenery out there XD.


  3. Aw, I loved reading this! It's evident how much you love Harry Potter :) I studied in London - but it wasn't abroad for me as I also was born in London and grew up here. I think London is a great place to be a student though - there are so many activities and things to do that constantly change around the capital.

  4. How exciting that you'll be studying in London!! You're going to have such a blast living there. I'm jealous! I have to admit something....... I've never watched or read any Harry Potter movies or books! Ahhhh! Everyone gets so mad at me for that, haha. I promised a friend of mine that I'd have a Harry Potter movie marathon with her soon, though!!

  5. Aaaaaaah... aku juga mau pepotoan di Platform 9 3/4... T.T
    I wish I had my London trip story too on my blog, but... tiket promo tak kunjung datang, mamak :'( #AnaknyaPromoBanget

  6. Can I just say I think I am in love with your bangs <3 lovely photos!!!
