England: Salisbury/Oxford: Am I Too Old to Apply to Oxford?

August 5, 2014

semi-overcast 65 °F

Salisbury is a beautiful small historic town with a huge central cathedral.


We walked around town exploring and Ruby found some nachos (her favorite) and tried some local spirits in the market.

On the road again we found our way to Oxford. WOW, what a beautiful place to go to school. I wonder what the tuition is?? This town is a photographer’s dream— a huge campus, with 36 colleges, several bridges and unique buildings.

Some faves were:

The Bridge of Sighs: See the underside of the bridge? It’s bright red, perhaps this was the inspiration for the trademark red soles of Christian Louboutoin shoes?

The rowboats: This shot is from the bridge above.


The Radcliffe Camera: It’s the Oxford library that was built in 1737 and it has a beautiful blue dome. For all you Harry Potter fans. . .pretty sure it wasn’t named after Daniel Radcliffe :)


and this cool door too :)


We found a cute tapas place for dinner— it was pretty authentic and fairly inexpensive (thank you college town prices!): 20 pounds for a bottle of wine and 4 large tapas!?! We left here content and headed for Essex County to visit our friends Sharon, Chris and Bonkey!!
