This narrative describes our 25-day travel in the United Kingdom, from May 29 to June 22, 2018. The account follows our daily activities sequentially with many color photographs interspersed within the text. It is a reflective narrative written after the trip ended and we returned home. We traveled independently in England for half the time, visiting the Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studio Tour, the Leicestershire village of Kibworth, the North York Moors Railway, and the northern Lake District. We joined a musical tour of Scotland for the second half or the trip, with visits including Edinburgh, Orkney, and the Isle of Skye.

The Oxford Tribe Peter Rudiak-Gould
Books with a 5 star rating(2)
$12.95
Size: 5.25" x 8"
Binding: Perfect Bound
The city of dreaming spires. Eden meets academia. The oldest university in the Anglo world. The stuffiest place in Britain, and the silliest place, too.

Part memoir, part travelogue, part field guide, The Oxford Tribe will entertain the seasoned traveler and the armchair philosopher alike.
