Lovely days out with my kids. A pure spring and pleasure trip from London to Oxford by train, with an overnight stay included, and a close program of art and culture at the various museums, libraries, and the beautiful botanical garden. Everything in this university city is loaded with tradition, “britishness” and interwoven historic ambience.
We saw a lot – but also enjoyed more mundane pleasures such as high tea, a time out on top of the Ashmolean, sipping wine and elderflower gin at The Eagle & Child (the weekly meet-up place for Tolkien and The Inklings for more than 30 years) and a little jazz at The Mad Hatter.
Back home again now. The impressions slowly settle down. Especially I look foreward to start working in my own garden.
