England is probably one of my favorite countries in the world, and so it is no wonder that it was top priority as a destination for my trip around the world. And while I had always loved London, and wanted to see more of it, after visiting other cities like Bath, Oxford, and Cambridge I realized I found the smaller, more English cities much more appealing.
If you are planning on visiting the United Kingdom I recommend you rent a car and drive around the country for as long as you can. I did three weeks and somehow it feels like it wasn’t enough. I will definitely visit again and explore more of the beautiful nature, impressive castles and beautiful architecture.
If you are wondering where else I have been during my trip around the world have a look at the Round the World Travel Destination Blog.
My favorite cities during the trip to the UK were Bath and Oxford, and so it really is no surprise that I went ahead and wrote posts for these cities. I could have stayed longer, and I probably will come back. Doing a masters degree at Oxford University sounds very appealing to me, if it weren’t for the high university fees.

When I arrived in Oxford on a sunny afternoon at the beginning of August my Servas host, Deirdre sat down with me and explained Oxford to me using a little paper tourist map of all the Oxford colleges. She explained to me that Oxford is basically a crossroads from which the city grew and that […]

After exploring London (and there were a lot of things to do there) I finally got to see more of England. And my first stop was Bath, just a couple of hours drive from the bustling capital lies this beautiful and historic town. Of all destinations in England, I think I liked Bath most (closely […]
