Spires and sweetshops.


This, my friends, is Cambridge. 

Or rather, what happened during a quick weekend's stay near the rather grand city as a result of my little sister's plan to apply there for University.

Jealous? Me?

Yes.

I mean, look at it. It's a stunning place, truly breathtaking, and whether or not she decides she'd like to go there, I'll definitely be visiting again. If only to watch the guitar-man-in-a-bin one more time.

Quite the talent if you ask me.

P.S. I'll be announcing the winner of my giveaway soon- keep your eyes peeled!

Oh wow, I envy everyone who goes to a pretty university. My university's campus is made up of eight concrete skyscrapers and loads of other ugly shades of grey!

Sirens and Bells

I'm confused.. is that man actually in a bin? Or behind a bin? Either way your snaps sure do enhance the city's beauty - I've never been but I have a friend at *whispers* Oxford which I imagine is a little similar? ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad

I love Cambridge! It's one of my favourite cities in England (and I like going bunting when there's a topless guy doing it, hehe). I really want to cisit again.

Cambridge is an amazing place!
Is she going to one of the Cambridge colleges or Anglia Ruskin?
Definitely tell her to come here either way! xxx

Cambridge is beautiful, although I did get a bit sick of all the students trying to sell me boating trips on the backs.
Your photos tell a lovely, intimate story, makes me want to go back!

I was gonig to say I'd never been to Cambridge, but then I remembered I had! Unfortunatey it was for work and all I saw was the inside of a couple of conference rooms in one of the colleges and the local Vodka Revolution...

Your pictures are much nicer than I remember it surprisingly enough! I must make a trip back to enjoy it properly!
