The popular university city of Cambridge epitomises quintessential Englishness – here messing about on the river and sipping Pimms on the perfectly manicured lawns are enduring summer pastimes. It’s a beautiful preserved, time-warpish place with spectacular architecture, world-famous colleges and where preppy attired locals whizz around on bicycles. From exploring the main historic city centre to punting on the River Cam, here’s our day out in beautiful Cambridge in pictures…

All words and photos by Becky

Born in England, with a few family roots from Bavaria, and a heart in Scandinavia I've always been a bit of a restless soul. My first true adventure began as a six month voyage around South East Asia as a fresh faced backpacker and ever since I've lived a semi nomadic existence, clocking up over 40 countries on trips and living in Dublin, South East Asia and Australia. I'm a lover of US Road Trips, deserted beaches bathed in warm glow of a sunset, Cuban mojitos, easy-on-the-eye travel destinations far away from the tourist crowds and all things Scandinavian - from cloudberry liquors to Scandi Noirs. When not wandering the world, you'll find me walking my rescue dog in leafy South West London, strolling around the Brighton Laines on random day trips, hunting for photogenic landscapes or daydreaming about returning to my all time favourite places in the world; Havana, Copenhagen, Italy, Thailand and the frozen landscapes of a wintry Iceland.
