Cambridge: Quaint as F@#%

A lot of people seemed surprised we chose Cambridge over Oxford, but for us it seemed natural. Knowing we were going to be spending the majority of our time in London, a city we had at least briefly visited before, we wanted to see something different. And while Oxford is a legitimate city, Cambridge is kinda a prestigious yet sleepy college town. Perfect, we thought. Someday we will back & probably explore Oxford, but I can't say we were wrong in our estimations of what we would find in Cambridge.

That town is ridiculous. Like really truly quaint. I wanted to stuff the whole city in my pocket and take it around with me, taking it out from time to time to gaze at it like a perfect village within a snowglobe. But that's creepy. And the town is cute, real cute.

Punting on these boats is a popular tourist activity
Would love to know how old this place is. Amazing
Serious Quaintness
First lunch: Ploughman's Platter. I am in love.
Wisteria everywhere. How can a whole town smell like happiness?
A spot of tea at the B&B

The weather was beautiful the whole time. We know- we were very lucky
I know! We can't even believe we saw this gorgeousness.
