A Day in Cambridge
Our day started with a train ride to Cambridge which took an hour from the town. Some of our friends who we were meeting in Cambridge were coming from London as we wanted to go with more people. The more people we go to exploring a new place, the better.
Strolling and Putting
The highlight of this trip is our putting experience. At first, they charged us 100GBP for five people. However, with bargaining powers applied, the final offer was 80 GBP which we happily accepted.
The river tour took about 30 minutes with free history talks from our putting guide including explanations of infrastructures- buildings and bridges a long time ago.
It is amazing to see that these buildings were built hundreds of years ago yet they are still here, strong and tall.
Unfortunately, we weren’t allowed to enter the Universities there unless we are students. On the tour, we see them hanging out near the river with their friends. I wonder how it is to be a student in Cambridge, it must be fun but at the same time, you must be really smart.
Another amazing fact that I learned from that tour was that popular geniuses who made a great difference in the world such as Charles Darwin and Stephen Hawking actually studied at one of those Universities. These awesome people I only read in books or heard in movies were there in Cambridge too in a different time.
Lunch at a Thai Restaurant
After our river tour, we enjoyed Thai food at a restaurant along the riverside. As you know from this blog, I used to live in Thailand and worked there for years. So, it’s nice to taste these delicious Thai delicacies again in the UK.
The rest of the day, we went strolling exploring more of Cambridge. We also tried their Ferris wheel for 4GBP.
We walked for hours on this day but we never complained. I guess it is because we were truly enjoying the place and the people we were with. Overall, my friends and I had so much fun visiting Cambrdige even just for a day.
