I can say that with all the miles we have walked and the stairs we have climbed that we certainly accomplished our journey through time. Sleeping in ancient beds was an interesting experience in of itself as we had one bed that we had to put to rest - it was so angry in the beginning of our sleep until we asked it to calm down. The energy surrounding that bed taught us to not take lightly the magic we would encounter in our trip.
They were from North Carolina and had just had a wonderful experience going to Warner Brothers' Harry Potter Land in London. Looking at their pictures, I sat thinking this was the type of magic I wanted to see. The wizards, Diagon Alley and the magic surrounding these characters. But then I thought again... no, I had really wanted to see the REAL magic of Scotland, Wales, and Cornwall.
Our time at Glandyfil Castle was romantic and inspiring with all sorts of ideas too.
So yes, the trip was worth it. The friendships were great to make and the re-connection with family was special. Now to take my souvenirs and go play.
