Lady’s 48 Hours in Cambridge

One of the things I love about day trips from London is that they allow me to see a lot of places in a short time. But sometimes a destination deserves a closer look, and now that I have 48 hours in Cambridge I’m excited to dig a bit deeper into this university city.

Lady at a Cambridge Ball

One of the things I love about universities like Cambridge is tradition. Whether it’s punting on the river or wearing strange (to me, anyway) gowns during dinner, there are all kinds of quirky things that make these academic institutions unique. Most visitors don’t get to see the traditions that take place behind the scenes, but every once in awhile a special opportunity arises. One of them did so for me this week: the June Event at Emmanuel College.

Lady Visits a College in Cambridge

Most visitors to Cambridge don’t see much of the university’s interior. The colleges are strict about who gets in and out of the gates in order to protect students from massive tourist crowds. As such, I was excited to receive an invitation to attend a few special events at Newnham College at Cambridge University. The chance to get beyond the exterior and experience college life firsthand was a unique one, and I couldn’t wait.

Lady of the Snows

I was going to write a post today about how spring has finally come to London, but when I woke up this morning there were two inches of snow covering everything in sight.
