oxford one

over this past weekend, i ventured on an hour out of london to oxford - a town best known for it's prestigious university (and also the inspiration for "alice in wonderland" and "the chronicles of narnia"). after overhearing one of the tour guides, it is also where part of the last "x-men" was filmed, as well as "harry potter".
the first day was spent walking the busy streets and then taking a non-touristy journey along the thames river to a restaurant (which you can only get by foot) called the isis farmhouse to have some cider underneath a willow tree. can anyone say mary poppins dreamland? 

that night i stayed at the malmaison hotel which started off as part of the oxford castle turned prison in 1785. in 1996 the prison closed and was transformed to this luxurious boutique hotel.
