C is for Cambridge — A Fantasy Itinerary #AtoZChallenge — 7 Comments

  1. Oooo, now I am going to start taking some fantasy trips, cost unbarred…. wander around. I read “On the Trail of Genghis Khan” last year, so maybe I will imagine that first!

  2. It’s a long time ago since I visited there but you’ll very much enjoy it I’m sure. I was young and only went there a few times at most. It’s a very beautiful little place – or it was, it’s maybe sprawling more nowadays. Nice to see an old photograph of it too. I’d recommend a visit to Ely Cathedral and Peterborough Cathedral if you were planning to travel there, if you have time. They’re not far from Cambridge. I’ll stop by again in the week and look forward to reading some more virtual travels with you. Staggering how much I don’t know about most towns and cities in my country. 🙂 Thanks again, I enjoyed reading.

  3. It sounds amazing! I’d love to visit Cambridge. I had the opportunity to visit Oxford, years ago, with an English friend, but didnt’ make to Cambridge. I loved Oxford, but I’ve heard many people say Cambridge is even more beautiful.
    What’s your take?

    • I keep going back and forth on whether I want to visit Oxford or Cambridge (assuming that I have to choose). I have ridiculously romantic notions of Oxford based on what I’ve seen on TV and read in books. But, Rick Steves and other travel advisers say that Cambridge is easier — a smaller town with the colleges more concentrated within walking distance of each other. So, for now, I think that Cambridge will be my choice.

  4. A FABULOUS post, Joy! While I’ve visited Oxford twice (and want to go again for a more extended trip), I’ve never been to Cambridge. I plan to save the post for future excursions across the pond 🙂
