Trip to Oxford

It was a university trip again! So why do we like this university trip so much? Because it's a day trip (tak perlu bersusah-susah book hotel), provides a service coach right to the place, and of course it's cheaper! The places offered in the package pun best. In weekend pula tu..so yeah, what we do in weekend.
It was a day trip to Oxford. Well, to all Harry Potter fans  this is the chance to soak up in Hogwart's atmosphere. Because all colleges are scattered around the town, so I chose only those appeared in Harry Potter scenes sajalah =P

Dangg! The library (Bodelain) and the Great Hall (Christ Church college) were closed! Frust sangat =( The Great Hall was closed due to a parents-college programme that was held on that very day =(

On our way to Christ Church college, we stopped at this lovely Alice's shop. Alice in Wonderland was inspired and written by Lewis Carroll, who studied and lived in Christ Church college.


 Christ Church college






 The scene when Harry and the new first years student greeted by Professor McGonagall was shot on this 16th century staircase which leads up to the Great Hall.



After Christ Church we moved on to the Bodelain library, walking through the town, and had our lunch (bekalan nasi goreng!) near the Redcliffe camera (camera is another name for room)





There was an exhibition near library that rather interesting! The Romance of the middle age. The literature from those midieval time from Greek, Latin, Arab.. just to name a few. Cantik betul buku tulisan tangan dengan gold ink lagi. I wish I can snap a photo, so precious! But no camera allowed. Banyak betul frustration hari tu tau.


The Bridge of Sigh, Oxford version. Have you seen the one in Cambridge? It  is on a river!
Now, where's Aariz?

Mengigau senyum =) =) Despite my frustration..comel je dia senyum


The last point was to the New college, having originally been founded in 1379. Not that new huh? It was hard to find the 'famous tree' sebab sangatlah tersorok. So here's the New College cloisters that notably in scene which Draco Malfoy was transformed into a ferret by Mad-Eye Moody. Ingat tak?









And it was 5PM, time to go back. We walked by the Thames river..
