Cambridge : punting on the river Cam



After lunchtime, we continued our day in Cambridge at the Backs. It is the area where the colleges of Uni of Cambrige back on to the river Cam. It is a very practical way to explore all of the colleges by punting on the river. Initially, I thought to purchase the ticket online (to reserve the seat), rupanya lagi murah beli terus and negotiable. So we got our ticket at 18pounds for two (most website price is 12pounds /pp)



Well there's nothing like punting on a river overlooking the beautiful landscape of Cambridge. Other than a leisure purpose, punting is like a quick way for us to learn the history of Cambridge. Sebab the chauffeur ceritakan every how and why about the colleges as our punt passing thru the buildings.

Yes some people might choose to walk through the Backs but it's pretty difficult because the walkway is separated by bridges.


As seen, my husband was fascinated by the Mathematical bridge. He liked it because of its mathematical explanation. Aariz pula masa ni sibuk cari duck-duck =)


and bird-bird


the mathematical bridge

the bridge of Sighs
the 'sighs' of those pre-exam student, as simply claimed by the myth. ye, masuk akal dan kretif namanya.


And more of Cambridge stories..like, the rival between Trinity and St. John, the multi huge Cambridge library sampai ada student simpan dadah! And the latest was Trinity (the wealthiest) bought London O2 concert arena for MJ's welcoming concert...
And the punting last for 45ish minutes.



The end, for Cambridge =)
