TFJ TRAVEL JOURNALS: LONDON/WINDSOR/OXFORD

Before even seeing London, I always knew I would love it. This city not only lived up to my expectations, but exceeded them.

The best part for me was definitely spending time with much loved family who live there, but it wasn’t only that which confirmed my idea to move there some day.

London is a city filled with hundreds of years of history. Monuments can be found around the corner, and the atmosphere is indescribable. I found London to be a welcoming place, maybe because I was completely open to everything that it had to offer as well. In London, we saw the London Eye, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Covent Garden (which isn’t actually a garden) Shakespeare’s Globe, South Bank, The Shard, The Cheese-grater, London Bridge, Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, and Oxford Street. I felt like I was playing real life Monopoly.

During our time we also saw two Shakespeare productions at the Globe Theatre. We watched one of my favourite plays, A Midsummer Night’s Dream as well as Macbeth. If you are interested in theatre or literature, or are just curious about The Globe, I definitely recommend going to see one of the productions, it was easily one of the highlights of our time in London.

We also went to Oxford and Windsor. Oxford was nothing like I expected, probably because I didn’t actually know anything about it other than it was home to one of the world’s most prestigious universities. As for Windsor, I got quite jealous when I saw how well the Queen lives. By luck, the flag on the castle was raised whilst we were there, which meant that Queen Lizzie was in the building.

For summertime, the weather in London wasn’t the best, it was always jacket weather, except for the one day that we were in Oxford, but regardless I think it added to the atmosphere of each place we went to. I definitely recommend London to anyone who enjoys the city lifestyle and wants a trip that they can fill with historical sightseeing, culture immersion, and shopping.

Have you guys been to London? What were your favourite places?

MUST HAVE: WINTER DRESSES

Being a student, my life at the moment is pretty hectic, and while I spend my nights doing assignments (at the last minute, of course) I catch up on sleep in the mornings (roughly an hour before class starts) so instead of rushing like a mad woman trying to come up with a decent outfit in the 15 minutes I give myself to get ready, I just put on a chic winter dress and run out the door.

Match Point

Match Point

I’m not much of a tennis person… I cannot tell you that i’ve watched a tennis match, or that I understand the rules or the game enough to be able to follow one. One thing I do admire is how many different types of people, from diverse countries can come together and cheer on the event. It’s like any sport really but tennis is something that unites Australia throughout the summer. It acts as a landmark for hot afternoons and cultural gatherings… something that Australians find sacred to our culture.

Tennis matches people, matches countries and you get bonus points for matching outfits! Lately I’ve become a bit punny even though I hate puns. Which brings us to Irony.

Now, the irony of it all is that this edit is based on the idea of matching your outfits and accessories, rather than having anything to do with tennis.

Which then leads us back to match points.

We are going back and fourth, just like in tennis.

Bazinga.
