The covered market of Oxford: one of the best places on earth for some coffee and browsing :)
Our field trip took us to the Foundling Museum in the morning, then later the British Museum. We finished off the day by viewing the London Tower next to the London Bridge along the Thames, then finally a Jack the Ripper night walk to learn about the infamous crimes of the 19th century serial killer. All in all a fantastic second day to London!
So after growing up in London for the majority of my life, I finally saw London! You might have read that and been confused. Let me take a moment to explain. I live in a London that has a Thames River, a Covent Garden Market, Storybook Gardens, and has street names named after royalty. There’s one glitch though; it’s in Canada.
The English version (upon which our Canadian version derives its name and many of its attributes), is a whole lot better. Spent some time meeting my boss at Social Business.org having coffee at Somerset House, walked along the Thames by the carnival, over the Westminster Bridge to see Westminster Abby and Big Ben then headed back to Oxford via bus (p.s, it’s a pretty quick/cheap transport! Love European travel). Check out my adventure in the pictures :)
