My English memories: Cambridge

Cambridge

Cambridge

Back in 2008 I visited Cambridge several times. Why? A simple reason really: I worked only a short train ride away. I’ve only been to London before my work experience in the UK so I had no idea how the rest of the country looks like. I had a couple of vague romantic ideas which I mainly got from many English movies and books that I devoured like a kid on a sugar rush. Cambridge lived up to those ideas. And more so!

I can’t say that I did many touristy things in Cambridge but I did have the privilege of visiting several colleges. I’ve visited Clare college, Trinity college, Christs’s college and King’s college and its beautiful chapel. I even stayed at one of the modern colleges ๐Ÿ™‚ Furthermore, I went to Fitzwilliam museum but I can’t say that I’ve really explored it since I had some tummy problems and later I just went to Cambridge to do some shopping and to walk around the Backs. I always assumed that there would be another opportunity to fully explore Cambridge but it didn’t happen in the end. During my first visit I had drinks at the most famous Cambridge pub: The Eagle. Also, I tried punting. That was a fun and difficult experience. We had to punt ourselves and even though my friends managed it well I found it to be really strenuous. Next time, I’m hiring a punt with the punter! I walked around Cambridge’s lovely streets and admired the fairy-tale architecture of its colleges. Oh, I wish I could have earned my degree in Cambridge. Instead I bought an university t-shirt as a souvenir ๐Ÿ™‚
