At the beginning of October, my aunt and uncle came to London to visit for a few weeks.  It was great to be able to see family and show them around my new city, but one of the things we also did was take a day trip to Oxford.  From where I live in London, it's only a little over an hour away by bus.  I've had a number of friends go there and tell me how beautiful it was, and let me just say that they were 100% right.  This small, historic city is home to one of the oldest universities in the world. We visited it on a picturesque autumn day, and it had a crispness in the air.  Though the day began a bit grey, by the time we started on our walking tour the skies cleared.  We saw the different colleges and chapels, all of which had their own beautiful and unique qualities.
After the tour, we went into Exeter Cathedral which was highly recommended by our tour guide.  The cathedral - though technically is only allowed for students - will almost always allow tourists to go inside.  Whilst we were there, we were lucky enough to listen a someone practicing the organ which echoed perfectly inside.
I think my favorite part of the city, though, was seeing some of the Harry Potter filming locations.  At the start of the day, I picked up a pamphlet which lists every HP film location in the city, and I couldn't put it down.  Because the tour took most of our day, I wasn't able to see all the locations, but the one I was most excited about was the oak tree and courtyard at New College.  What's so special about an oak tree, you may ask?  It just happens to be where Malfoy was turned into a white ferret by Mad-Eye Moody in The Goblet of Fire!  That's my favorite of the films, so I was excited to see it.  I suppose I'll just have to go back to Oxford soon so I can see the rest of the locations!

Until next time, Oxford.
