I suppose one also has the option of pretending to be a wizard, as some scenes for Harry Potter were filmed here...
But enough pretending!
Oxford, as a town, is quaint and lovely. It's not as crowded as London, but still has a plethora of gorgeous old buildings to gawk at. Feast your eyes:
Wearing my Oxfords in Oxford. Tripppppppy.
I don't know what it is about the above door, but I am completely drawn to it. I want to read a book by it, or have a photo shoot with it as the background...is it weird to love a door? Don't. answer. that.
And then, you reach the actual University of Oxford campus, which completely steals the show:
It tripped me out to see just how old these buildings are. Looking closely at the ceiling (above) and lamp (below) you'll find century-old cobwebs and flaked off bits of stone...
Of course, I got quite cold wandering around and hurried into a coffee shop to get a bit of tea...
To steal a quote from Taylor Swift, "Being the girl sitting alone in the cafe, taking a picture of her latte. If that's a thing." Yep, Taylor, that is a thing.
I ended my glorious excursion at the Eagle and Child, the pub C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien used to frequent and write their books in. You know, no biggie :)
Oxford, my friends, is a winner. Do visit!
