Breathtaking Memories

Oxford

This was my first time in Oxford. I heard that Cambridge was supposed to be one of the most romantic cities in Europe, but I was not too impressed. So, my expectations for Oxford were a bit lower… And when I got there I was really surprised! Ancient colleges and perfect lawns, lots of students were studying and working in their labs even on a Sunday. Busy high street with lots of shoppers. A park was completely flooded, students were playing some game that reminded me of Harry Potter (one of the guys had a broom!), another field was occupied by lounging deers. A fun place and a feast for the eyes 🙂
