Bucket List

Bucket List: Harry Potter

hp xhphp xx

To many the fact that I have a Harry Potter section of my Bucket List would not come as a surprise. I don’t dare to imagine what my life would be like without Harry Potter because it’s always been there. J.K. Rowling brought so much magic to my life and millions of the others around the world and I honestly think the world would be a much dimmer place without it. Unfortunately, I can’t dive headfirst into the books and live in the wizard world, but my Bucket List has some good substitutes. I haven’t done everything on this list, but I have fulfilled more in this section than others.

Here’s Harry Potter things I want to do before I die:

  • go to Platform 9 & 3/4s
  • go to the Hogwarts castle (which is actually called Alnwick Castle)
  • have a movie marathon (there’s been many plans but it’s just never worked out, yet)
  • play Muggle Quiddich (there were two matches so far this year in college and I missed both because I didn’t know about them – I can’t think of a word strong enough to accurately describe my disappointment)
  • read all the books – done
  • get my acceptance letter – done
  • try Butterbeer
  • try every flavour jellybeans – done
  • try a chocolate frog – done (I got Dumbledore)
  • own a wand – done (Hermoine’s)
  • own a Gryffindor scarf – done (my cousin’s brought it back from Orlando)
  • find out my house – done (Gryffindor because I trust Pottermore)
  • find out my patronus – done, it’s a ginger cat
  • go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Orlando
  • go on the studio tour in London
  • stay in the hotel in London (The Georgian House hotel)
  • go to The Elephant House cafe in Edinburgh (this was one of the cafes J.K. Rowling used to write in, the menu looks fantastic and I practically live in cafes so I gotta see it – maybe I’ll get hit with inspiration for a best seller)
  • go on the Hogwarts express
  • own the Maurader’s Map
  • meet J.K. Rowling (okay this is a long shot but I can hope)

Edit: I was lucky enough tick a few more things off this list in August 2019, read all about them here.

  1. I love this and would totally be on board with everything mentioned (although our completed items differ quite a bit – I’m a Slytherin with Bellatrix’s wand hahaha)
