Welcome to Oxford, a charming city where you can escape opening any door. It will almost always lead you to a beautiful place.
Where you can escape and hide in beautiful buildings full of books.
Where you can escape by sitting near the river, or better still, getting in one of those boats and enjoying the peace of a different Oxford.
I moved to Oxford from Spain seven years ago and, in that time, I've seen many sides of it. The cold, rainy city where everyone speaks a language I don't understand. The sunny place that welcomes foreigners and makes them feel at home. The town that speaks multiple languages and it's still so undeniably British. The city centre where locals, University students, English language students and tourists walk side by side (annoying each other). The neighborhoods, so different, each a small universe, I've lived in over the years (I've moved a lot!). A city that can be so infuriatingly small but amazingly lively.
The city that I now call home, for here I've grown and learnt about myself more than anywhere else, and here I've fallen in and out (and in again) love. A place I keep coming back to, everytime.
