On our last day before departures, Saturday 11th August, we had the optional day! There were three options: Thorpe Park, a theme park; shopping day and plenty of free time in Brighton; Oxford! I thought that Thorpe Park was the worst option, because there would have been a lot of people and too much to queue and honestly I was sick of Brighton and its rocky beach, so I decided to go to Oxford! A lot of people opted for Oxford! I woke up really early since the meeting point was at 8 a.m. We took the bus at 8.30 and I think we arrived in Oxford after 2 hours! I was so tired I slept for most of the time! As soon as we got in Oxford I fell in love with it! Everything is so old, the buildings are amazing*-* I love old buildings and that kind of architecture! Tommaso decided to spend the day in Brighton (how did he dare to leave me alone!?) fortunately I had the other Terranova Brother with me, Valerio, who is amazing and so funny! We spent all day together and I had an amazing time, thank you <;;;;3 ! We got off the bus and we started to walk around Oxford! This time there were some friends of the William group and I got to spend some time with them! Oxford is amazing, I think I could spend all my life there (first option is still New York of course)! There were so many bicycles and everything was so quiet! Most of the time we had free time, almost 3 hours, but we visited the Christ Church where Harry Potter was shooted! during the free time we went to McDonald’s first! Then we went to look for a hoodie of Oxford University; I found the one I was looking for*-* (thank you Valerio for the early birthday gift <;;;;3 )! Then we went to Starbucks (Berry Hysbicus in the <;;;;3) and then we went to the shopping center! There was the shop “Build-a-bear”! Next time I’ll go to London be sure that I’ll go there and I’ll make my own Teddy Bear :3 I really loved Oxford and I hope I’ll have the chance to come back there eventually! I’m sad I didn’t see the Universities, though!
