Last day in Cambridge! Today was a lot more rainy and dreary so it took extra effort to get out of the hotel! After a delicious free breakfast, I headed out to go “punting”- basically a tour down the Cam river on a little guided boat. It’s the best way to see the colleges as the best views are from the river. The tour guide was great and I learned so much!
Afterward I headed to the King’s College chapel- the second largest chapel in the world (number 1 is Sistine Chapel in Italy). It was gorgeous. I then went to the Wren Library at Trinity College. It was beautiful but they did not allow photos….(grrrr) . They had original manuscripts of Winnie the Pooh and notebooks from Sir Isaac Newton!
I rested out of the rain for a bit and went back out in the evening to hear the men’s choir at the nightly Evensong at King’s College Chapel. Again, no photos, but it was a beautiful service with angelic singing!
I finished up with some Indian food for dinner and packing up to head home!
