Zoë and Pauly went to Oxford for a couple of days to celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary. I, of course, went with them.
We traveled by train and had a pleasant journey.
The first thing we did was have some coffee at Ratio Cafe.
We did a bit of shopping and then had lunch at George Street Social. Zoë and I had pancakes.
The weather was wonderful and we enjoyed exploring in the sunshine. We went to the Covered Market, Objects of Use, and the Shop at the Old Fire Station.
We checked into our hotel, Malmaison, which which used to be a prison!
Our room had a little balcony with excellent views.
We did some more exploring in the late afternoon sun.
We had ramen noodles for dinner. The steamed buns were excellent!
The next day was grey, damp and a bit chilly. I prepared myself with a big breakfast!
We went to the Ashmolean Museum.
Next we went to the Museum of the History of Science. A very interesting museum with lots of cool brass instruments!
Zoë spent ages in Blackwell, she does love a bookshop!
We finished our trip with pizza at Franco Manca.
We had a brilliant time and look forward to going back again soon.
