The Cambridge Chronicles

IMG_7837IMG_7848Punting boats along the river. Punting is an old tradition in Cambridge, so I had to try it! Unfortunately I didn’t get many good pictures of myself punting because I was focused on not falling into the river 🙂IMG_7868When the sun is out, everyone is out!IMG_7880Good thing I’ve walked everywhere this trip! ^^IMG_7885The Round Church is the second oldest building in Cambridge, built in 1130 AD.

Hello friends! My group has moved to Cambridge, a town about an hour and a half away from Oxford. Although they are both college towns, they have their own distinct atmospheres. Cambridge is much more rural, with more parks, rivers, and fields. There are also more tourists, street performers, and open air markets. The other day, for instance, I heard some noise outside my window and looked out to find a Shakespeare play being performed on a little stage in the park! There is a liveliness and optimism about this town that I love, and will miss when we leave on Thursday. I know this months prompt for Travel Tuesdays (a weekly blogosphere event I participate in) is Travel Bucket list, but I just couldn’t bring myself to write about another place when I’m presently enjoying this place so much! So if Cambridge is on your travel bucket list, I hope you find this post enjoyable 🙂

  1. Lovely photos! It’s definitely on my UK Bucket List to see Cambridge so it fits the theme 😉
    The first time I saw the punting boats in photos I couldn’t believe it was in England! So cool!

    1. It is a Bucket List worthy place! The punts were fun but hard to row because I have no upper body strength haha. I would recommend getting a guide if you go 🙂
