Memory Lane.



Due to circumstances I didn’t make many pictures lately so I am going back to Memory lane.

A few years ago we visited England and one of the lovely places we visited was Cambridge situated on the river Cam. A  university city with beautiful buildings.

Have a look.




Trinity college and the river Cam.

A walk down memory lane can be a lot of fun. These are great photos. I hope you are well and just too busy to get more pictures.

Hello Riet, beautiful images from Cambridge. The College and the chapel are just gorgeous buildings. Thank you for sharing your visit. Have a happy week ahead!

Hello Riet, it's always nice to pull out some older photos now and then to reminisce. The architecture in Europe is amazing and Trinity College is no exception.
Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday, have a good week!

I don't know Cambridge as well as my local home town Oxford but I get the same sense of excitement from the punting on the river, to the incredible architecture all captured so perfectly. Thank you! Have a lovely week.

Hi Riet,

Ooo, I just love seeing those flying buttresses! Thanks for playing today.

I like your new header too.

Happy Blue Monday!

Beautiful tour, Riet! I've missed your photos of late!!

Donna said...

You really captured so much of the beauty of your header too!

LV said...

Never been to this part of the world, but feel as tho I have now after this glorious tour. Your header is an awesome place.

Oh thank you so much for posting these amazing photos of Cambridge dear Riet. I kind of live through your travels you know, since I am unable to myself :) Your photos are stunning and it is wonderful to see the beautiful architecture of this place. Just so beautiful!!!
I am sorry to read your winter has been dreary. We started out so cold that I thought ours would be much like it usually is, but unlike in the east of our country, the west has been extremely mild once we got through Dec. I almost think we may have an early spring...but I've made this mistake before, and then the weather has turned and been bad again. So I am going to remain a little cautious yet.
I hope spring bursts forth for you soon my dear friend!
much love...

Such beautiful photos of Cambridge. I visited there in the late 70's, in the day of film cameras. Wish I had taken more photos. Thanks for sharing these with us and giving us such a lovely tour.

Lieve Rietje,

Ohhh wat een indruwekkende foto´s
laat zien. Wat een SCHOONHEID van
een kerk met dat gigantische orgel.
Zelf ben ik zonder geloof opgevoed
maar kerken vind ik altijd heel
erg mooi om te bekijken. En ook
om orgelconcerten te beluister.
De akoestiek on zo´n ruimte is
werkelijk geweldig!!!

En dan al die gebouwen, wowwww
wat een Architectuur. Om zoiets
dergelijks te ontwerpen is

Veel liefs,

Beautiful and historical place Riet and your photos are fabulous.

When your archives are as good as yours are, memory lane posts are wonderful!

Joyful said...

These are stunning shots! The day and weather also look very nice. Just the kind of day to enjoy a sightseeing trip.

Lieve Riet,

Prachtige foto's van Cambridge. In ga er in het voorjaar een dagje naartoe met vriendinnen. We logeren in een cottage in een dorpje niet ver van Cambridge vandaan. Ik kan mij er nu al op verheugen!

Fijn dat je weer aan het posten bent! Ik hoop niet dat je net als vele anderen de griep te pakken hebt gehad.

Goede week verder!

Prachtig Riet, ik zou er meteen naartoe willen. Met al die blogs zien je zoveel leuke vakantiebestemmingen voorbij komen.
Je header is ook prachtig!
Lieve groet,
