      Day 29 Cambridge, UK

      January 5 in England ⋅ ☁️ 5 °C

      Wow! We have probably found our second most favourite place of the trip. After a reasonably easy and straightforward trip from Nottingham to Cambridge, we parked up to find the most beautiful city, full of history and character. The flat is perfect and walking distance to town. In one day we managed to tick off several of the 21 things recommended to be done in Cambridge. First off we stopped for brunch at Fitzbillies - a delicious and much needed sandwich/ sausage roll. We then wandered the streets, stoppping at Great St Mary’s Church to climb the 150 steps on the tower for a great view over Cambridge. We then carried on past many ornate and beautiful buildings including King’s College Chapel. There were several other churches and many gorgeous buildings, all of which were later identified and explained on our one and a half hour Hop On Hop Off bus tour around Cambridge. We were amazed at how big the city is and how the university is the absolute heart of the city with many colleges spread all around. By now it was neatly dark and very cold as we were in the open topped top storey of the bus. We got off the bus and settled into The Mitre pub for some warmth, a drink and then an early dinner. We decided then to walk around the corner to find Jack’s Gelato for a delicious ice cream for dessert. We walked it off as we made our way in darkness back through town, down some back streets and then to our flat. We can’t wait to explore further tomorrow.Read more

      Cambridge and some punting

      June 30, 2017 in England ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

      Mum, Dad, Grace and I hired bikes today and rode around some beautiful parks and along the canals. We met Dane and hired a punt to experience the true Cambridge style. It wasn't too difficult to do it, just had to make sure to keep your balance and not fall in the water.
      After we had a look at some of the Colleges and beautiful grounds around them. Dane told us stories of the different Balls he had attended at the colleges. Sounds very extravagant and a fun experience for him.
      We returned the bikes and had dinner at a new pub by the railway before heading home. Jet lag was still hitting the others.
