Oxford, Day 1: Staying Awake

Originally posted May 27, 2012, this blog post series is an undergraduate short-term study abroad trip in Oxford, UK in partnership with Salve Regina University and St. Clare’s Oxford. The blog post may have been edited for clarity and updated with relevant travel information and links.

The direct flight to Oxford, England departed around 10:00pm from Logan Airport in Boston, MA. Taking into account the time zone change, the flight arrived at London Heathrow Airport at 10:00am.

From there, the student group drove to Oxford by bus and briefly settled in their dorms before heading onto the tour of the area. We went through Summertown and the main downtown, passing a great number of shops, markets, colleges, universities, churches, and other historic monuments that date back hundreds of years ago.

A few snapshots from the day merely show a glimpse of how beautiful Oxford truly is:
