After the hustle and bustle of London, it was nice to retreat to the English countryside... Our friend Helena's family home (aka Half Penny Cottage) is situated in the very quaint village of Stonesfield. We also visited the palace of the Duke of Marlborough (the eighth or something like that). He is seen as extremely lavish and is pretty much hated throughout the area - but wow! what a beautiful property

Then, we breezed through the infamous university town of Oxford, ran up the extremely old Christ Church Tower and of course, made a pit stop at the 1st place winner of the "perfect pub" award for a wee pint. All in all, the history amazed us and incredibly enough we found that there is SOME open space here in England. That's it for now.
