it was already dark when I had arrived at my last Airbnb, a stunning and still super cosy cabin next to the River Thames, so I was already looking forward to waking up to an amazing snow-dusted view. But in the morning it was all gone… Good bye winter wonderland!
The view was still beautiful! I just have to come back and stay longer, maybe do the Thames Walk or write a book or both!.
It was hard to leave, even more as it was raining, but Oxford was waiting for me. There are quite a few park & rides all around Oxford, which is the cheapest and easiest way to get into the city centre.
Back to city life and people and lots of people feel always a little bit strange after a few quiet days, but Oxford was a lovely place to get back to busier times. It wasn´t possible to visit the universities but I had a long walk around town and enjoyed my last cream tea (still missing those).
Divinity Hall at the Bodleian Library – or like Harry Potter fans know it: the Gryffindor Infirmary and also used for the Goblet of Fire and other scenes.
My sanctuary from the rain: The Grand Café – the site of the very first coffee house in England, serving great cream tea!
