Last weekend Andy and I took a stroll around on of the most famous Universities in the world. It was the most lovely day. Cold, clear, and sunny. We started out the afternoon with a mulled wine at The Eagle and Child pub. The pub where C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolken would go every Tuesday to talk about literature, theology, and the books they were currently writing. It is an incredible and cosy pub that I would love to be able to go to regularly. I just kept imagining all the conversations that must have taken place over those old wooden tables 🙂
After that we started walking through all the old colleges. The buildings are so incredible with so much time and energy put into the architecture. The buildings are just exceptional. Again, imagining all the conversations and lectures that must have occurred in those buildings! The weather was perfect and so it was a lovely time to get some good photos.We got to see the giant round library and all the famous colleges.
We walked along to the rugby pitches, still smelling of soil from that days games. We saw several deer grazing on the grass which made for a lovely scene. We walked through town, hopped on the train and headed home. We can’t wait to go back and explore a bit more 🙂
