day one: oxford


^ location from a few scenes of harry potter ^
^ new college, where lots of harry potter scenes were filled. also my favourite spot so far ^
^ see the ball of leaves towards the top of the tree second to the left, that's mistletoe! ^

after finally arriving in oxford we hit the ground running, visiting a number of colleges and touring around the streets surrounding the different universities. we also made a quick stop into the grocery store and i was pleased to find a whole self dedicated to hot chocolate.

it was a crazy first day, but i think that's the best way to do it when you're trying to fight jet lag. also, can we talk about the weather for a second? it was perfect! for somewhere that has a notorious reputation for being chilly, overcast, and drizzly, there was not a cloud in the sky when we arrived and the temperature was perfect. really the perfect day.


  1. You will have to watch the Harry Potter movies and see if you recognize the locations.

  2. darling, would be able to pick me up some of that heavenly cadbury hot chocolate. It is simply to die for. -oxox <3
