A Week in the Life of a Tourist

One of my favorite parts of England was just walking and looking at all of the fantastic architecture. This was just a piece of GORGEOUS Cambridge. 

One of the colleges of Cambridge University! Couldn't resist so much beauty in one picture! 

 The Church of St. Mary the Virgin - one of Oxford's most iconic places, and SO beautiful!!! I also love trees in the spring and this was a fantastic purple flowering tree!!!

WOWZA. Oxford from the top of the Church of St. Mary. It was a lot of stairs, but definitely worth the  trek and four pounds to see the city from up top! 

Oxford's BEAUTIFUL library from a bird's eye view!


Getting some classy English afternoon tea at desserts at the oldest coffee 
shop in England! (or so they say...) 

SUCH a fan of Roald Dahl - one of my favorite parts of his museum was hearing about what the original drafts of his stories are like! 

 Not to mention I LOVED the chocolate doors - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is my childhood companion, second only to Harry Potter. 

OBSESSED with the set of Matilda - and the rest of it! Like Lionel, I have been shamelessly listening to the soundtrack constantly.  

I got a picture with my favorite elf! 

 In the GREAT HALL!!!

 Nothing beats the sound of awe from 24 Harry Potter freaks coming around the corner to see this :D

It may be an evil place, but I'm still FREAKING OUT to be at the door of the Chamber of Secrets!!!

PREACH, Rowling.

  1. Bri, you picked some of my favorite things too. I also have been listening to the Matilda soundtrack nonstop. And so glad you all were affected by being in Cambridge and Oxford.
