The town's crest
Cambridge was the adventure of the day. It was perfect, college students going to a university town, I felt at home, the prices were cheaper there were student discounts and to put the icing on the cake it had the look. I have never seen so many bikes in one place before, it made me want to go for a bike ride.

Cambridge includes places like  King's College Chapel, Cambridge University Library, University of Cambridge and St. Johns College. Cambridge has some really interesting history.

Cambridge became known as a university town after people from oxford went there to create their own history under King Henry VI. It was really cool to look at all the architecture and styles of the medieval era and how there is style from so many different times in one place.

I really liked hearing the stories about Cambridge and how it has grown. One that I thought was interesting that Cambridge was so excluded from the rest of the country. I also think it's interesting that only recently years ago was when they started to let women have education there which to me is crazy.
After taking the walking tour we went to lunch. Lunch was really delicious!

To top of the day we went punting! It was such a great experience, and it was really delightful because we had some awesome tour guides or punters, they had really funny jokes. It was really cool to see the town from the river.
