Harry Potter MotW #11

Harry Potter Moment of the Week 

Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a meme hosted over at Uncorked Thoughts. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote, object from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself! Upcoming topics & how to join here.

  Favorite Wizarding Way to Travel

This week was a free week, where we get to chose the topic we want to feature.  Since I missed some good ones before I joined up to this MEME, I decided to go with my favorite wizarding way to travel.  JKR comes up with some really original and amazing ways of travel when you think about it.  Apparition is wicked convenient and saves a ton of time, but it also kind of makes you sick and apparently feels really weird.  Then there's Floo Powder which is brilliant when traveling to and from Wizarding houses but can get complicated when some crazy Muggles decide to board up their fireplace! But I have to be honest, my favorite magical way of travel is still by:

Broom


...maybe it's my love of all things related to Halloween, Witches & Wizard but I've always thought it would be beyond incredible to be able to fly all over the place on a broom.  Think of all the stuff you'd get to see, or how cool it sounds to fly by the light of the full moon around midnight...preferably on a night like Halloween!

I loved how Harry was so naturally good at flying on one of these in the series.  Especially when we get that glimpse into his past at Godric's Hollow, flying a little broom around the living room? Sigh :*) Plus, it's the only way to play Quidditch!

  1. Great pick. I prefer apparition myself, even though it's a but uncomfortable. No need to worry about where I park though! :D
    "when some crazy Muggles decide to board up their fireplace!" Bahahahaha! True. Just rereading GoF and will be on this chapter soon :D

  3. I love that scene in the Order of the Phoenix movie where Harry and his guard are all traveling by broom to Grimmauld Place and they fly over London. I'm pretty uncoordinated and don't know if I'd have the balance for the broom, so I think I'd take my chances with apparition, lol.

  4. I like the idead of cloaking yourself and going for a midnight ride on a warm summer night with a full moon...how cool would that be! The flight to London by Harry and the Order in the fifth film was beautifully done. It made you want to do it yourself. If I was going shopping I think I'd apparate though to make it easier to carry all my books...

  5. Duuude the broom looks SO MUCH FUN!! I want to play quiddich with it, too! Just because! >.< Floo Powder! LOLZ that has so much potential to be epic failures!

  6. Ooh, I'd pick broom, too! And that's saying something because Jo has devised quite a few really creative ways to travel. Now, this is assuming I were a natural on a broomstick (which... I have my doubts that I really would be because I'm not super coordinated or athletic) because otherwise I would probably go with Apparition.
