I'm going to Hogwarts!

I have been so excited for my trip to England because I want to meet Harry Potter. Also, we are taking a ship across the ocean, just like Samantha does!

But today the best news came, we are going to Hogwarts! There are two castles in England that we might go to, Warwick Castle and Kenilworth. I think the both might be Hogwarts. I know that muggles can't see Hogwarts as a school, just an old castle.

Well I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for Harry, Ron, and Hermione!

The photo above is of Warwick Castle, looks like it might be Hogwarts, huh?

And I wanted to add a few pictues

I have been to so many pretty places. I am a very lucky 11 and a half year old. Here are some of my photos, I will add more soon, because there are a lot that I want to share.

Here I am holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa! Heehe!

This is what I look like most the time, ready for a new adventure.

I love sparklers, on July 4th my cousins and I played with them before watching fireworks.

My family's cabin is one of the prettiest places out there. I like it because I'm old enough to explore on my own!

I love National Parks, here I am at Bryce National Park at sunrise.

It is me, Violet

Yea! My Mama finally said it was okay if I had a blog. I've really wanted one, but she always said I was too young. I am 11 and a half, that's not too young! I told her that a blog would help me learn about computers, typing, and the internet. I also told her that Inky has a blog, and she is younger than me. So finally Mama let me get one, and here it is!

Another neat thing about this blog is I can show my hosts how to sign on and post so my Mama and Daddy can keep an eye on my when I travel.

So, who am I?

My name is Violet Ann Trump and I am a travel doll. My Mama and Daddy are travel writers. They travel around the country and the world writing about food, culture, and what to visit when you travel there. I've traveled my whole life with my parents.

Once I turned 10 my Mama let me start traveling to other doll families across the country. This is really fun because I make friends all across the world and also get to see lots of places. I've been to places including Victoria Canada, New York, Seattle, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Ohio, Kansas, and lots more. I've also been to Italy and Ukraine.

I am a single child and I am home schooled. I get plenty of time to play with kids my own age though, because I have lots of cousins and friends across the country. I really like to be home schooled because I get to learn things most kids my age don't learn, like Russian, Italian, or how to read a subway map. I also have to take regular classes like reading and math.

I don't mind reading too much, and really like science (biology is my favorite!).

In just four days I leave for a really big trip with my parents, we are sailing across the ocean and going to England! I really really want to meet Harry Potter. Daddy says we might even get to see Hogwarts! And I'm really excited about the ship, it is called Queen Mary 2. Daddy says it is bigger than Titanic!
