Jun 05, 11 Au Revoir again …

Posted by in Cambridge 2011

Time to leave Cambridge again (for now). We’ve all had a great time. We stayed in a CityStay apartment very close to Julies digs. It was a very swanky modern apartment … I think that we’ll be using this type of accommodation...

Feeding the fishes …

Posted by in Cambridge 2011

“Feeding the fishes” … No we’ve not tangled with the Cambridge Mafia … but the girls have been to an ‘alternative’ beauty therapy where you immerse your feet into a tank of water for 15 minutes and let Garra rufa fish nibble away all the hard skin. I’m sure Annelies is now a centimeter shorter !...

This morning we had a late brunch with Julie before heading off to the Fitzwilliam Art museum. The museum houses works from antiquity right up to modern abstract art. We were able to get up close to works by Monet, Cezanne, Picasso and Rembrandt amongst many others. Also, and what I found most impressive, there were carvings and...

Met up with Julie for a leisurely brunch in a little cafe on the river Cam. We then spent the afternoon wandering the charming streets and alleyways of Cambridge shopping like people possesed (we’re returning home with no less than 5 new pairs of shoes between us!) This evening we went to Great St Mary’s Church to...

Most famous of course for its “Big Wing” during the Battle of Britain. It’s from here that the famous Douglas Bader flew with his...

Well we’re back again in the outrageously cosy city of Cambridge, visiting Julie in her ‘new’ digs. Cambridge is a lovely as ever and even the weather has perked up so that it’s hot and sunny. After arriving today we visited Wood Wind and Reed where I deposited my beloved Tenor Sax for repair and service...

Au Revoir Cambridge

Jun 02, 09

After a final frantic flurry of shopping its sadly time to bid au revoir to Cambridge. Annelies managed to buy 4 dresses a casual top and a skirt in the space of 4 hours ably abetted by Julie and my Mum. I managed a more modest shop in the local music store where I bought some new Jazz Improv tutors and a new Tenor sling. Cambridge...
