Oxford ♡

 As you know I'm living in the Oxfordshire region at the moment and I just wanted to take a moment to share with you some pictures of this beautiful city. There is so much to love about this city because the city loves and cherishes so many things such as learning, history, street music, food and nature. Every time I enter the city it feels peaceful with people riding vintage bikes, strolling along the Thames or drinking tea in cafes. Even when it's busy there is a certain quietness about the city. I love being able to call this place my home, even if it is only for a little while.

Both are located in the Carnaby Street area and I already want to go back!

From London with Love ✖️

 'You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.' - J.R.R Tolkien 

For the last three days I've been roaming the streets of London. I've walked through Carnaby St, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Neals Yard, Hyde Park, Oxford St, Leicester Square, Notting Hill and so many more places I can't remember the names of. There are still so many places I didn't explore or didn't explore enough. But as I live in Oxford now I know there will be plenty of opportunities to discover more of London. I didn't have any set activities I just let my feet guide me around and I was surprised how quickly I became familiar with the city (well the parts I hung out in anyway) and how it worked. But the second day I knew short cuts to get from Oxford Circus to Piccadilly Circus, I knew that you don't wait for the lights to go green to cross the street, and I discovered that if I stopped to look at a map for more than ten seconds someone would magically appear and ask if I needed any help. It is such an amazing city, old and yet so full of life! I loved every minute of it and look forward until I come back, but for now I'm excited to explore my new city, Oxford x

Take me to the Sea ❤

In three days time I say goodbye to my friends and family, grab my luggage and hop on a plane to London. From there I catch a train to Oxford where I will begin working in a pub. Over the course of the year I want to travel around Europe and share my experiences and findings with you guys.

This weekend was Easter weekend and for it, my family went to our beach house at Shearwater. The sun was shining, the sea sparkled and I couldn't help feeling relaxed. I have so many wonderful memories here and it seemed silly not to share a few pictures from home before I shared random places from around the world x
