Travel Report: Scudamore’s Punting, Cambridge.

Scudamore’s Punting, Cambridge. May 2019. Mike and I had enjoyed a comprehensive day exploring the gorgeous city of Cambridge. But now, with afternoon edging towards early evening, there was one more quintessential Cambridge experience left. In fact, it would’ve been criminal to have bid the city farewell without taking a cruise down The River Cam on a traditional […]

Travel Report: Cool Spots Around Cambridge, England.

Cool Spots Around Cambridge, England. May 2019. The English city of Cambridge is an architectural gem, thanks in no small part to the University of Cambridge and its thirty one gorgeous colleges.

Travel Report: Barrington Village, Cambridgeshire.

May 2019. I knew I was going to like Barrington Village the moment I started reading about it in China. I’d been dreaming about regaining a sense of lost Englishness. Of treating myself to a quintessential corner of Blighty where people walk their dogs and the air is fresh and punctuated with birdsong. Where there […]

Travel Report: Chesham, England.

Chesham, England. August 2019. The leafy English market town of Chesham in Buckinghamshire isn’t an exciting place. In fact, one might say it has very little to entice the passing traveler. While nobody could describe Chesham as the pulsating heart of England, it nevertheless occupies a special place in my heart. Because, ladies and gentlemen, Chesham was […]
