For Good Friday, seeing as it was a bank holiday, Adam & I decided to take a trip out of London & pop to Cambridge. It was only an hour on the train & I can't believe we've not taken advantage of it before. We walked from the station to the city centre & our plan was to head straight to the Tourist Info & see what was what. That was until we spotted a shopping centre & we ended up veering in "just for a quick look" & lost most of our morning in there! Yoink! We eventually came out & ended up in front of Kings College & it was stunning.
We managed to get away with looking like students for most of the time so we didn't get hassled too much from the punting tours but then someone spotted my camera & came over. Seeing as it wasn't too busy we managed to barter the price down a bit & we booked a tour for 4pm. We met up with Dave & Heather for a bite to eat & a good old catch up & carried on with a bit of shopping (unfortunately I found a Fopp so ended up lugging round 3 new books that I couldn't just leave!). It was then time for our punting trip so we met a guide & headed down to the river. We loved the fact that Cambridge is a city based around clever people & someone couldn't spell 'official' on their t-shit (then again it could have just been to get your attention cos it worked!).
They always say you learn summit new everyday - well I learnt that guys don't like to show off their knees in denim shorts! We went into Jack&Jones & Adam tried on these shorts below & I thought they were ace but he wasn't convinced & the shop assistant came up & said he was the first guy to try them on & how did he feel? When he saw Adam's face he pointed out how weird he thought they were as well & how all denim cut offs should be below the knee!
We wandered back to the train station after searching high & low for a cafe doing a cream tea at 5pm (we found one but they only had 1 scone left so we shared it & had half a hot cross bun each!). I crashed out on the train home after realising how much walking we'd done all day. As always it was really nice to get back to London & hop on the tube home.
