Hello guys! I’m so happy to be back online, it’s been quite a while I know! How are you? Did you spend a lovely summer? I certainly hope so! For my part, it was amazing and it went by SO fast (like all good things I guess…). I enjoyed being with my friends and family, I traveled a lot which made me SO happy and it was sunny and I could just take my time to cook yummy meals, read and watch too many tv shows.
Anyway, let’s get back on track and here’s to a new article! This one will be a bit different, I really hope you’ll like it. First, I’ll talk about….the latest…the long-awaited…the famous… : Harry Potter & the Cursed Child. And since we’re getting back to Hogwarts and breathtaking scenery, let me take you to one of my favorite city I’ve been to this summer : Cambridge, UK !

So I was in England and EVERY bookshop had wonderful window displays about Harry Potter and I could just see everyone buying that damn book, plus you know I devoured every book of this serie… I just HAD to get it. At first, I was a bit anxious ’cause I thought the serie ended perfectly and I really didn’t need a next one. But you know as a huge fan of Harry Potter I just couldn’t pass on the opportunity to get back to this magical world one more time and I must say I wasn’t disappointed. Of course, it isn’t a novel, there aren’t many descriptions of the surroundings and the feelings of the characters (I really missed that!) and yes you don’t really get back to JK Rowling’s writing style and yes it feels a bit like a fanfiction but seriously you NEED to read it and here’s why!
10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD NOT MISS THE CURSED CHILD
1. Easy and fast read ;
2. Plenty of action, not a minute of boredom ;
3. It’s like you never left Hogwarts. If, like me, you don’t remember every little detail and you got scared you had to re-read all previous books, don’t you worry! Everything is well explained, you can totally skip Google on this one ;
4. Our beloved ship Hermione/Ron ;
5. It’s “almost” like you’re watching the play. Apart from lucky Londoners, I don’t think a lot a people are going to make to trip to see that play, so yeah just get the book ;
6. Great focus on the kids. Seriously who isn’t a bit intrigued with what happens next?! ;
7. We meet Draco again. Grown-up Draco? Yes please! ;
8. Deals with child/parent issues and who can’t relate to that? ;
9. It keeps that fairytale tone and takes us traveling through time which we LOVE ;
10. ALL THE FEELS getting back to that magical world.
NYX IS TRAVELING ✈️
As you all must know by now, I went to England with my sister this summer. We visited a few cities and we had such an amazing time. We’ve been to England a couple of times before and damn I must say that I really missed it! So today, I’ve decided to talk about one of the cities we’ve been to during this trip, a city I really REALLY enjoyed and you’ll soon know why!
Cambridge is situated about 50 miles (80 km) north-by-east of London. It is a university city and the county town of Cambridgeshire, England. The River Cam, bordered by meadows, flows through Cambridge from the village of Grantchester, to the southwest. The city centre is mostly commercial, historic buildings, and large green areas such as Jesus Green, Parker’s Piece and Midsummer Common. Many of the roads in the centre are pedestrianized.
Cambridge is the home of the University of Cambridge, founded in 1209 and one of the top five universities in the world. The university includes the Cavendish Laboratory, King’s College Chapel, and the Cambridge University Library. The Cambridge skyline is dominated by the last two buildings, along with the spire of the Our Lady and the English Martyrs Church, the chimney of Addenbrooke’s Hospital and St John’s College Chapel tower. Just like Oxford, Cambridge is made up of individual colleges, there are 31 today. St Benet’s Church, situated next to Corpus Christi College, is the oldest standing building in Cambridge.
The River Cam running through the city centre is used for boating. In fact, the University and its colleges are well known for rowing. Parts of the Cam are also used for recreational punting, a type of boating in which the craft is propelled by pushing against the river bed with a quant pole.
