Oxford


Vi var også i Oxford for at se Oxford University og wow! (Yeah "wow" siger absolut alt, hvad jeg har at sige om Oxford). Ser I, bebyggelsen af Oxford University startede allerede omkring 1100-tallet, hvilket du helt sikkert godt kan se på den måde, bygningerne ser ud på. Det er kæmpe stort, majestætisk og bare rigtig smukt. Et helt andet faktum er, at rigtig mange af optagelserne fra Harry Potter filmene er optaget her - deriblandt spisesalen hvor alle fire kollegier spiser sammen. Det synes jeg naturligvis var en mega fed oplevelse, da jeg totalt digger Harry Potter og da også har både læst alle bøgerne og snildt kan se filmene om og om igen. 
Derudover så sejlede vi også i Themsen, hvilket var lidt af en interessant oplevelse… Lad mig bare sige, at det på ingen måde var nemt at ro i modstrøm i den skide båd ;-) Dog fik vi lavet lidt sjov ud af det. 

We went to Oxford to see parts of Oxford University and wow! (Yeah "wow" indicates everything I've so say about it). You see, the building on Oxford University started already in the year of 1100 and that is really reflected in how it all looks today. It's huge, majestic and just beautiful. Another fun fact is that many of the shots from the Harry Potter movies are filmed here - like the dinning hall where all four colleges are gathered whenever eating. I found that so exciting as I'm really digging Harry Potter and have read all of the seven books and furthermore I can watch the movies over and over again without getting bored. 
Apart from that we also sailed in Themsen which was a quite interesting experience… Let me just say that it's definitely not a piece of cake to row in that god damn boat ;-) However we made a fun trip out of it.
