Since we were in town over the holiday break, we sadly missed out on meeting any Hogwarts students in their medieval garb. To compensate, we pretended to be them.
After a taxing day of rigorous study and hunting for clues
about Voldemort’s evil plans, we headed up the enchanted stairs to our Gryffindor
Common Room for some well-deserved rest.

Picture-taking is strictly forbidden in the Joanine Library, perhaps because some of those 12th-century books might disintegrate into tiny particles at the slightest disturbance. I tried gaining access to the Restricted Section to no avail, but I did find the door to the Room of Requirement beneath the library.

Okay, it's actually a former university prison, which is equally fascinating

A thank you to Coimbra for welcoming us with very cold, foggy weather. Totally Hogwarts-like.
