*oxford* wandering

3 January 2014

Our day in Oxford was quite wonderful. Even the rain paused just often enough to allow our meandering and photography. One of our friends is a graduate of the university so we thoroughly enjoyed her insider stories, exploring her famous college, walking secret paths and retreating to warm and dry cafes for lunch and snacks. The colours of the buildings were a pleasant surprise, as was turning a corner to find a paddock of cows along the river. As we left, I said to my husband, maybe you should change careers and become a professor here and I’ll be your trophy wife!

    Oh, happy memories! I lived in Oxford for a few years (I’ve been lucky to live in some beautiful places). I once flew over it on a sunny summer evening – a golden vision I will never forget. I’m glad you enjoyed it too!

    Beautiful pictures of a lovely town – my daughter has been living near Oxford for the last couple of years and it’s quite a special atmosphere compared to our British Midland and Swiss roots!
    I spent a lovely day exploring with her last year, also the surrounding countryside, simply delightful.
