Tania Aunty was an amazing host and took me out for a day to visit the Oxford campus (one of the top items on my England bucket list). A 30 minute tube ride to Central London, 30 minutes of waiting for a bus, and a 2.5 hour bus ride to Oxford later, we were starved.
After a rather heavy and delicious lunch, we set out to tour the campus and city of Oxford.
Oxford was so genuinely beautiful and nothing short of a royal palace. The European architecture, the British traditions during exam time, and the town itself were mesmerizing. I was constantly reminded of Hogwarts and the inspiration for so many aspects of Harry Potter.
We happened to visit Oxford right at the end of the semester when final exams were taking place. All the students we saw were walking around in actual gowns and suits, so we stopped a group of students who had finished their exams and asked about the outfits. It turns out that every Oxford student has to own a suit/ gown for church prayers, formal dinners, and for final exams.
Now on to the photos...A fair warning that this post is mostly pictures of beautiful buildings and the unique architecture.
This is my last post from England - stay tuned for the next country and many more adventures!
