This weekend I went to Oxford and went on an open top bus tour. I love seeing the world from above, you spot so many interesting things you don't notice from the ground. Did you have a good bank holiday weekend?

Wow Harriet, these are such lovely pics. One of my best friends lives there, wish I could visit. x

I worked :( haha. Well, I got to party & see some friends, but I would have loved to have today off too so that me & Phil could have explored somewhere. I think we have a belated bank holiday at the end of this month & we're planning to cycle to the sea!

Such gorgeous pictures! I love love love Oxford. So pretty! My sister lives in Oxford, and last time I visted her, it was University exam time. I was a little bit too excited to see lots of Oxford students rushing around in Harry Potter-esque robes. I visited Rye today, I've always driven past it en route to places but never stopped there! I think I may do a bank holiday post about it, as like oxford, it's too beautiful not to :) x x

The buildings in Oxford are so beautiful. I love that there's an open top bus there! Somehow I never thought Oxford would have one!

I'm always so jealous of people that live in or near cities with such beautiful architecture. *swoon* I wish Canada were much more historic.

Absolutely gorgeous pictures! When I saw the coloured houses, I immediately assumed you may have gone to Brighton... shows what I know, haha. I'm pretty sure now, that my town is the only place without cool candy coloured houses! I'm dying to go to Oxford, have wanted to for years, maybe its time to take a little trip :)
