So this was our fifth and final day in England... *sobs*. Like day three when we took a little trip out to Stonehenge & Bath, this day we took another excursion to Stratford and then Oxford. Stratford was probably one of my favorite parts of the trip, it was such a quaint, lovely city with a bunch of cute stands selling all sorts of things and streets with gorgeous houses & gardens. By the time we got to Oxford, i was pretty tired as we had an early morning & we sat in a boiling hot bus for hours, so i didn't particularly have a spectacular time there, it was still really nice though.
The day was a bit of blur, so i don't have much to say about the places we visited. We did a lot of touristy things, but got to explore a bit, which was nice.
Shakespeare's birthplace - we did the tour thing here, pretty cool.
Streets of Stratford, it was a nice day so everyone was out enjoying the day. :)
Holy Trinity Church and Shakespeare's grave
Anne Hathaway's cottage - it was so gorgeous there! The people & the surroundings were so lovely. I signed Shakespeare's birthday card, was kinda cool to see all the other signatures on there - though one person did say "JK Rowling is better" -_-
Lazying it up on the bus, on the way to Oxford.
Just have a random mish-mash of photos from Oxford, don't exactly remember what we all saw while we were there. Just walked around the campus really & bought obligatory Oxford gear. ;) I got a bright green hoodie & grabbed a cresant for lunch (wasn't the same without strawberry jam).
We then went back to London for dinner and to see the musical Wicked at the Apollo Victoria Theatre. Wicked was ah-mazing. I'm not much of a theatre person necessarily, but it was so good! Defying Gravity definitely teared me up, the actors were all incredibly talented and the story was really interesting - would definitely recommend it. :)
After Wicked, we all pretty much went back to the hotel and packed all our stuff up so we didn't have to do it in the morning. The next morning we had a quick breakfast & headed to King's Cross St. Pancras station to take the train to Paris. ♥ So expect a post or two with pictures from Paris!
