My first stop on my month long trip to Europe was the City of Oxford. The last time I had been in England was 6 years ago with my high school history class, so it was safe to say I was excited to be back to explore on my own. Having two friends from Madrid now residing in Oxford made visiting on this trip a must. The short coach ride from the airport reminded me of how movie-like England is - from the thatched-roof farmhouses to the cobble-stone roads it almost didn't seem real.
My time in the iconic college town included afternoon tea in a picturesque garden, punting along a stream during golden hour, a walking tour learning about the vast history of the city, rooftop cocktails, and many hours spent reconnecting with old friends.
I adored every part of Oxford, from the way everyone cycles everywhere to the beautiful architecture and endless supply of cute coffee shops and book stores. I would definitely recommend visiting if you're ever travelling in England.
