Cambridge for the day

After a few days in London it was time for a little day trip to Cambridge. We jumped on the train for about an hour ride and were transported to some very old and interesting places. Cambridge is the alma mater to some very smart people including James Watson and and Francis Crick. These are the lovely gentleman that discovered DNA in 1953. They went to celebrate and announce their discovery at a pub called The Eagle which has been open since 1667. Obviously my mom and I had to eat there in order to be surrounded by such knowledge while I drank a lovely beer called DNA.

It was a beautiful day to walk around and get lost in Cambridge. We stopped for a coffee and tea to watch people punting on the River Cam where I was secretly hoping someone would fall in!

It was a great little day trip and a very easy ride. I can see how people would choose to commute into London and live in this area. Everywhere you turn is history and giant churches.
