Now this is a little late but I figured since its Friday I could rewind to a week ago. So last Friday was Good Friday and both me and Tim were off work so we decided to make the most of the day and take an impromptu trip to Cambridge.
We stayed there for the Easter weekend last year and it was lovely so we thought why not go again for the day?! Tims brother Simon lives there now so we also thought it would be a good opportunity to see him and where he lives.
We decided on the park and ride to get into Cambridge City centre in order to avoid Tim having the stress of driving in. We were so lucky with the weather, it was a beautifully sunny day and it just made Cambridge all the more lovelier to look around.
Once we’d met up with Simon and he had shown us around his house he took us into town, a route that followed the river which was so lovely in the sunshine.
We grabbed lunch from this lovely Sicillian place that Simon though me and Tim would enjoy, knowing how fond we are of all things Italian! It was delicious. It was called Aromi and the pizza was awesome.
Mine was topped with mozzarella, ham, mushrooms and artichoke. So yummy I almost forgot to take a picture before I finished it all as you can see!
We saw some awesome and very grand buildings as we walked around…
Kings college, Cambridge.
I thought this one looked really Hogwartsy so I had to take a picture!
Simon showed us the huge tree him and some people from his work had climbed. Me and Tim gave it a go but didn’t get very far!
Once Simon had showed us where he worked he pointed us in the direction of some museums as he was meeting a friend.
We tried the Fitzwilliam museum first but this one was unfortunately closed so we tried the Scott polar research institute. This documented the various polar expeditions that have been undertaken, the history and culture of those that live in the different polar regions and there was also an exhibit all about the explorer Shackleton.
This intricately painted dome is one of two that is in the entrance to the institute. It illustrates the Arctic and the various explorers who have visited it.
If you havnt been Cambridge is definatly worth a visit, it’s such a lovely city.
Me and Tim had such a lovely day together, there’s no one I’d rather spend my bank holiday with ♡
Until next time,
