First, I have to start by saying that my train to Cambridge this weekend left from Platform 9 at Kings Cross Station – Platform 9 of the Platform 9 3/4 fame!
Second, I’m sorry, but there are a ton of pictures in this post so brace yourself.
I used to go shopping in Cambridge when I was a teenager, and I knew there was a world-famous university there but I never paid it any attention. I mostly went there with my friends and with Adrian back when we were going steady in high school. That was kind of our “romantic” place, so we decided to go relive our youth yesterday, but holy crap! Cambridge is a totally different place when you aren’t a stupid teenager!
I know there are a lot of famous sites that aren’t in my pictures, but as I said, this was a totally random day out and all the pictures are simply things I stumbled upon.
In the park on the way to the shopping center (centre):
The Round Church
The pub where I had roast beef *wrapped* in a yorkshire pudding!
It seemed like there was a different church on every street corner. We didn’t even have to try to find cool things. All you have to do is walk down the street and you’ll see ten more things you have to go check out.
A lot of people go punting in Cambridge, and it’s something I’ve always wanted to do. Although it was a nice day I thought it would be better to wait until summer so I could be the one with the stick. I don’t want to risk falling in the river during cold weather!
If you ever come to London, go to Cambridge. It’s a 45 minute train trip and as you can see it’s so much fun!
