A Muggle’s Guide to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Diagon Alley

When I was 9, I spent most of my afternoons curled up in my bed, firmly clutching my Harry Potter book. No one tried to get my attention because they knew they would fail miserably. I was immersed into this magical world and everything else was just secondary. Every book was re-read, every movie re-watched. I basically grew up with Harry Potter and his friends by my side. So imagine my excitement when I first set foot onto the cobblestone streets of Diagon Alley and Hogsmead. I was grinning  ...

How to spend two perfect days in New Orleans, Part 2

After enjoying our time in the Garden District, we made a beeline for the oldest neighborhood in New Orleans, French Quarter, also known as Vieux Carré. Parking was a daunting task. We had to park all the way at the end of Royal Street, which was kind of far from where all the action is. I didn’t mind it though because the charming architectural houses we saw on the way kept me busy. The houses here are simple and modest. A far cry from the grandiose houses in the Garden District.
