The last place I traveled to before the pandemic was London in January of 2020. It was a short weekend after Pitti with little on the agenda except to check-in on what could be my favorite global city. There’s much to love about Paris, Copenhagen and Tokyo, but they don’t do it for me the way London does. It could be the only place I would ever consider living abroad — not that I’m actually considering it. It’s a fun thing to think about and it’s obviously a wonderful place to visit with a light agenda. Just recently I made my way back to enjoy a long weekend in the city before heading off to Northern Ireland for a trip with my friends at The Fliers Club. Once that part of the trip was done I flew back over to Heathrow for a weekend in the country and my first ever visit to Oxford. This was a trip in three distinct parts with each section having its own pace and feeling. As always I found a few new places and revisited some old haunts. Even if travel can be difficult at times it’s unmatched in its ability to direct your focus on the world around you, and more importantly, to within.
Below is a photo recap. No real cameras this trip but iPhone got it done. This email will be cut off due to length so I encourage you to click through to the website to see everything from Oxford and the English Countryside. I’m already scheming to rent a country house in England next summer.
