My birthday involved some serious sunshine, and it probably wasn’t the best time to visit Cambridge in the midst of a heat wave. The shops were a welcome escape from the heat and a perfect excuse for birthday presents! Everytime I visit there is a need to explore, and I’m constantly finding new hidden passages and courtyards full of architecture and history. I was desperate to go punting as I’ve never been, but sadly due to the intense heat it wasn’t to be. I’m crossing my fingers for next time.
