So, yesterday I went to Oxford. I had been about 9 years ago, but it was great going back and seeing what I could remember, which was not much!
We got on a train at Paddington and arrived in Oxford where we went directly to have a picnic in a field on the outskirts of the city. To get there, we walked along a really beautiful canal:
We arrived into the city which is beautiful: here are some pictures.
After "strolling" through the center of the city, we split into groups and explored different parts. The group I was with went to Christ Church, which is where a lot of the scenes from the Harry Potter movies were filmed. Its also where Charles Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll) was a deacon. Much of his inspiration for "Alice's Adventures In Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass" came from there. It was really a beautiful place!
After wards we walked around the city a bit more, went to some souvenir shops and then went and got milkshakes (kit-kat milkshake=SO GOOD!). We got some food and then decided to find a pub. Where we hung out for a while.

|I was lost in Paddington Station, luckily a family found me and took me home and now gives me endless supplies of Marmalade.|
Overall, it was a really great day, full of weird and funny things. Every once and a while you need those sort of days where all you can do is laugh at the things around you, especially yourself. Its one of those days you wake up not really knowing what to expect and then go to bed thinking, "hahahahahahah wow, I almost got run over by a little 'rabbit deer', chased by geese, sorted at Hogwarts, pictured jumping in front of numerous buildings, made faces at people through a burrito shop window, rioted and even got lost and found in Paddington Station with Paddington Bear." Life is funny, if we choose to make it that. Even if you are being pursued by a group of geese, its important to laugh.
Personally, I think every once and a while it's the best thing in the world to laugh at ourselves...
Well, thanks for reading everyone, I really appreciate it.
p.s. VLOG 3...coming soon?
