This week I traveled back to Oxford and after my energizing red eye out of Boston I landed at London Gatwick with a fantastic flu! Now that leaves me trying to still enjoy my week here. Unfortunately there isn’t much I can do that requires any physical effort.
So what am I going to do?
Well I’ve spent a good amount of time stopping by the Ashmolean Museum which is right across the street from where I’m staying in Oxford. I find this museum to be my #1 choice when visiting the city and I can’t help but find something new and interesting every single time I stop there. Sometimes I spend upwards of 5 hours just on the first couple floors. I’ll be honest and admit my boyfriend doesn’t feel as excited about visiting as I do.
Now if you’re not the museum type I totally get it. Some days I just don’t feel like looking at historical stuff. I found when staying so close to the city center I walk around and window shop. One of my favorite little spots for unique eats has to be the Gloucester Green Market. I use to visit a bunch of small flea market as a kid so it’s pretty nostalgic for me. They have a variety of food to choose from, especially some impressive wraps and pretty diverse food for fairly cheap. I found myself grabbing whatever food caught my eye and then perusing around the stalls to see if I could spot any inexpensive souvenirs.
While I’m on the subject of markets, I always feel the need to go back to the Oxford Covered Market. I can’t get over the beauty of it all, especially with the cherry blossom trees planted right next to the florist. Also who can say no to bucket of Ben’s Cookies. When I first spotted the little window and the large line of people all waiting I knew it had to be good. Good would also be an understatement. You just look at all of the huge chocolate chunks in each cookie and I dare you to say it doesn’t look to die for!

Love light and glitter
Amazing, interesting journey in the UK! Hope you are having fun!
I wish I could travel all the time! There’s nothing like stepping out of the airport after all the stress of preparation and flying phobia and finally walking into this unknown place full of things to discover. I am obsessed with old buildings and architecture is one of my favorite art mediums. The UK is just a treasure trove for someone like me.
I completely agree! The art and architecture has me in tears every time I see them! St. Paul’s Cathedral has to be my absolute favorite but there are so many amazing sights. I hope you get to travel more soon!
