Watery and outdoor Wednesday.

During our stay in England we also visited student city Cambridge. Very old and very beautiful.
My first collage is of  students punting on the river Cam. Punts are  littleflat  boats and are mostly handled by students .When you walk around through the town there they will try to sell  you a ride.They will show you the sights of Cambridge by boat. It should be a lot of fun. On these photo's you can see a group of Japanese studends who were singing and laughing.  We didn’t have the time to go on one so we definitely need to go again. (I wish). On the left on one or two photo’s is St John’s college, I believe it to be the most famous of several colleges in Cambridge.

Cambridge has several colleges but St John’s has its own very famous chapel. I would more like to  call it a huge church and it is beautiful. I made lots of photo’s in here but today I am just showing a few among other photo’s of Cambridge.  Look at the glass stained windows which are all around. And the ceiling is a work of art, so very special. It looks like it is woven. I will show more photo’s of the chapel and Cambridge in the future. Especially the inside of the chapel is beautiful..

It would be such a treat to go punting on this river wouldn't it Riet? Look at all the beautiful buildings along it. Cambridge is certainly full of lovey architecture everywhere you look. Such beautiful photos Riet. I love seeing life through your camera. It is always a wonderful experience.

I loved the post about the blogger get together you attended at Madelief's. Those photos were amazing too! Thank you for sharing that beautiful garden setting.

Je enthousiasme spat er van af lieve Riet, en ik vind het ook erg leuk dat je tegenwoordig er van die leuke stukjes bijschrijft. Kan me goed voorstellen als ik al dit moois zie dat je graag weer eens terug zou willen gaan. Gewoon lekker doen en genieten, toch.
Prachtig al die gebouwen en de gebrandschilderde ramen, gewoon sprookjesachtig.

Liefs Josephine

What great memories your photos bring back to me. My husband and I traveled there and enjoyed visiting many places in your photos. Love the collage. Thanks for the memories.......

Riet, thanks for the tour of Cambridge. How funny that we both blogged about places called Cambridge. Love the pictures of the church, very beautiful. Thank you for stopping by.

Hi Riet,

Your photos of England are just wonderful!! How nice that you got to visit there. My husband and I were there for a week in 1999; I thoroughly enjoyed it. We didn't get to visit Cambridge, however. A week is not nearly enough time to see everything, but I was fortunate just to go.

All of your pictures are really lovely -- in your posts and on your sidebar. It looks like you live in such a beautiful country; I've never been to the Netherlands.

Thanks for visiting my post and for taking time to leave a comment. Have a great week!

Beautiful photos! I've never been to Cambridge nor have I ever been punting! How fun would that be? I do love Oxford though so I'm sure I would love Cambridge as much as you do!

Our Christchurch is like an English town. There was puning in the river, the earthquake stopped that.

Beautiful photos of a beautiful place. I'd like to see them larger, though. I love looking at details. xo Jenny

Madelief said...

Lieve Riet,

Mooie foto's van Cambridge! Het roept veel goede herinneringen bij mij op. Een paar jaar geleden ben ik met mijn ouders een dagje die kant op geweest. Wat een mooi stadje is het.

Ik wens je een fijne dag toe. Fijn dat het weer eindelijk wat opknapt :-)!

Lieve groet,

Madelief x

Anita said...

Wow wát een prachtige foto's van Cambridge.
Ik ben nog nooit in Engeland geweest.
Wat een prachtige architectuur !!!
Wie weet ooit ;-)
Lieve groetjes, Anita

Jackie said...

Indeed Cambridge is a beautiful place, I personally prefer it to Oxford!! Although I have visited Cambridge a few times I have never been on a punt, sometimes it just seems to busy. Also I would worry about the low bridges and the pole that is used!!Looking forward to more photographs of your visit.

Love Jackie in Surrey, UK.

Grappige bootjes en niet bepaald puntig. Cambridge lijkt me een stad met een rijke geschiedenis aan gebouwen, zou er best wel eens naar toe willen. Fijne dag vandaag!

Kom Achterom said...

fijne dag

Cambridge is a delightful place to visit and you have captured it beautifully. It's been a long time since I was there, and it's great seeing it again through your lens!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Your photos highlight a glorious part of the world! Those punts appear to carry quite a few people! But most fascinating are the details of all those building facades!


Oh Riet, wat een prachtige foto's!! Ik krijg heimwee naar Cambridge (heb er een half jaar stage gelopen voor m'n studie, je kunt je voorstellen hoe zo'n stad voor een student is: volop feest!!), wat zou ik graag nog eens een boottochtje maken :)
Ik wens je een fijne woensdag!
Lieve groet, Chantal
