I got to revisit Oxford after over a year and loved it just as much the second time. I was primarily in Oxford because I was attending a Fusion conference called Firebrands from Thursday to Saturday, but since I remembered loving the city last time, I purposefully arrived a day early to walk around a little bit with some friends of mine.

This past week I arrived back in the UK (woot woot!) and got to visit a few places for the first time before I made my way back to Portsmouth including Sheffield and York!
