Translation for 140 languages by ALS
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowline.
Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sail.
Explore. Dream. Discover

Oxford, England

Went up to Oxford last week. I took the bus, which makes frequent runs to the town, and paid only 14GBP; even bought my ticket on the day of the trip with no price increase. It takes just under two hours to reach Oxford.

Of course I visited the university campus and also went to the theatre to see "Tis Pity She's A Whore". Can you believe that play is over 400 years old?! Sounds just like one of our running reality television shows! Upon coming out of the theatre the streets were already being freshly covered with snow. It looked pretty but I wasn't too glad to see it or feel it. I hate the cold!

The nearby hostel, Oxford Backpackers, wasn't much warmer either. Damn manager is a cheapskate who takes energy conservation a little too keenly...Commons area (translation: wi-fi reception, television, comfortable couches and tables) was cold as a witch's tit! We had to wear our coats and hats indoors. Thankfully, though, the sleeping rooms DID have heat -- and I took the bunk right next to the radiator. Hello! I stayed three nights. At 18GBP (18 bed dorm) the cost of sleep ain't all that cheap; in fact, it was more than what I paid for in London.
