As you climb onto the train, you walk down the aisle trying to find a compartment. Neville is chasing after Trevor and you spot Luna Lovegood reading the latest Quibbler upside down. Ginny is looking for a seat too with Arnold perched on her shoulder. There's Harry, Ron and Hermione sitting in the compartment next to you! You get the butterflies in your stomach because you know the magic is real when you can finally go back to Hogwarts.
The train ride is fairly smooth. You chat with some of your compartment mates about what you are excited about for the upcoming term. You can't wait the learn advanced potion making, some new spells and more about the magical creatures in the Wizarding World. You miss sleeping in your four poster bed and snuggling near the glowing fireplace with a book in hand and a mug of tea. There is so much to do in Hogsmeade too!
You're about half way there and you decide to get something from the trolley! So many decisions but what to choose? How about some Chocolate Frogs, Pumpkin Pasties and Cauldron Cakes? You buy a few of each and share with your friends. You're munching on your treats as you stare outside of the train. The picturesque view is breathtaking! Time flies by and you hear some Prefects, the Head Boy and Head Girl mention we are nearing Hogwarts. It's time to change into those wizarding robes! The train starts to slow down to a stop at Hogsmeade Station. We're finally here! Don't forget that Hogwarts will always be there welcome you home.
