Today was my first day on my own to explore. I started off on the Hop On/Hop Off Sightseeing Tour, as I figured that would be a good way to get my bearings of the city and hit the high level hot spots. There was only one other person on the bus, so Monday’s in January are not big tourist days…
I stopped off at the furthest spot- the American Cemetery. It is a cemetery and chapel and commemorates American servicemen and women who died in World War II. It was very tasteful and serene.
After a loop on the bus, I felt like I had my bearings of the city so I hopped off in the center of town and did my own wandering back to some of the places that looked interesting! Cambridge University is made up of over 30 independent Colleges- all with their own unique history and claims to fame. So much character and beauty!
After work, Kelly joined me for dinner at Parker’s Tavern- a cute but nice restaurant in a local hotel!
