I am now back in the US and traveled a few days with my family stateside before heading home yesterday. I did have a bit more to post about Oxford so I am planning one or two posts to cover a few things I missed. To be completely honest, the last week or so in England was challenging. Whatever illness I had early on came back twice as strong, and fairly seriously so the final few days. Wrapping up and traveling back was a frightening ordeal. I even ended up in the ER the day after arriving back, but now I’m almost completely recovered. I am so thankful for kind and supportive friends in Oxford who made all of the scariness much less scary, and to my family for all their support on the US side.
This week I will embark on a new chapter of life, and will have some exciting news on the writing front to share. But before all that here’s a look back at one England adventure that has not yet been covered…
One of my favorite day trips this year was a quick bus ride away. Four of us went to Blenheim Palace, famous for housing a long line of Dukes as well being the birthplace of Winston Churchill.
The palace and gardens were stunning and the weather that day was perfect.
