Jun 25, 2005 - Avebury, Lacock, Bath, and Stonehenge

Today was a super long day....We got up very early to meet our tourguide for the day Pauline. Mom had hired a car and a tourguide to take us all over England...well local to London mostly! Our first stop on our trip was Avebury, a small town outside of London that has a stone formation very close to Stonehenge. But since it is not very commercialized, you can get up quite close to the stones and touch them, where at stonehenge you cannot. I think this was probably my favorite part of the day. Just standing next to the huge rocks and trying...

Jun 22, 2005 - University of Oxford

Up at 6am for what started out as a very stressful morning. We still had no reservations for anything and I knew most tours would be leaving around 8am. I went downstairs and checked brochures, made some no-answer phone calls and started to stress. After yesterday, I was quite weary of London and ready to see some countryside. We knew we were supposed to go to Cambridge on Friday and we needed to be in the city on Thursday because we had tickets to Phantom of the Opera, so we were forced to do a little rearranging. We talked to the girl at...

Apr 30, 2005 - Oxford

The more places we visit in England, the more we realise how great this country is - Oxford no exception. It is a beautiful place where the bike is king and the university everywhere. I tell you, after going to that place I would say life would be ok. We hired bikes and rode to Woodstock - a great day. That night, we made our way to the Eagle and Child, the pub Tolkein and CS Lewis used to hand out at - me a happy boy there!

Sep 29, 2004 - Oxford - Days 38 - 39

Leonie had an interview with an agency this morning so I had lunch with a friend Sheree from NZ before heading to Oxford to catch up with my cousin Jude. We caught a bus to Oxford which took approx 1 1/2 hours to get there. Jude picked us up and took us to her quaint little flat. She had cooked us the most gorgeous meal with three courses!! I'd have to say it was the nicest meal I've had since being away from home. But also with good company :-) The next morning Leonie was feeling really sick so we laxed out watching dvd's. Leonie then...

Jun 11, 2004 - British Museum II and Oxford I

British Museum Part II After writing last I was going into town to the Polish embassy but when I arrived they only opened between 10am and 1pm. Of course I got there are 1.20 so decided to finish off the British Museum. The Americas were closed but I managed to see everything else - I might try to see the Americas again before I go to get a glimpse of some Incan & Aztec gold. The religious art from Asia and India was very moving. I was surprised by the sophistication of some of the African art as you can see from the Benin gates. I've...

May 12, 2004 - Blenheim Palace

Woke up to an delicious 'English' breakfast of bacon, eggs, toast, homemade marmalade. Thus fortified, we set out to visit Blenheim Palace at 40 minute drive, just beyond Oxford. In the early 1700's, the palace got its start after the first Duke of Marlborough won a great battle at Blenheim. As a reward, Queen Anne gave him his title and a grant of 2100 acres of Oxford countryside and 240,000 pounds to build the palace. At Blenheim, the Duke made sure that no one would forget that if it wasn't for him we'd all be speaking French. The...
