I have a confession to make. I didn't take a single photo with my camera the whole time we were in London. I brought it with me plenty of times, but we were just moving so fast that I never whipped it out to capture a moment, preferring to use Instagram. So lazy of me! But I did take quite a few photos when we visited the university town of Cambridge for the day. We thought it was a good stop while en route to Norwich, and rather than taking a guided tour around the colleges as most do we instead chose to take a leisurely stroll to see what we could discover ourselves.
One thing that struck me about Cambridge was just how many bikes were parked everywhere. Seriously, I saw more bikes than people and they came in every form and colour. I guess that's what happens when you throw a bunch of students all together in the same place! Something that I also found rather odd was that while passing through a touristy gift shop we found a set of knick knacks and mugs announcing the royal baby. These commemorative mug companies sure move fast! I actually wanted to buy one just for a laugh but I didn't come across them again in London. But in all honestly, I feel a bit sorry for Kate and Wills for this feverish public interest in their lives - and that's coming from a girl who writes about celebrities for a living!
