When you come to Cambridge, you cannot miss out the opportunity to do a bit of punting. Although it is a universally known truth, that you must punt in Cambridge, just how much do you actually know about punting? Apparently, you can't punt in any random river. The river has to be shallow enough for the pole to reach the bottom, because that's what's pushing the boat, instead of oars. Also, the historic building along the river also make punting quite a passtime while in Cambridge.
The punter we got was a lady!

Bridge of Sighs 嘆息橋
There are many similarities between Oxford and Cambridge, and Bridges of Sighs is one of these many similarities.
Our guide (also the punter) actually did an amazing job explaining to us the history of these buidlings and what they are used for today. However, my memory is not very good to begin with, and with age, I find it failing me even more frequently... So I cannot recall what these buildings are at all now! How unfortunate!
Despite being unaware of the in and outs of these buildings, it can still be seen from the pictures that each building has its own unique feature!
Even each of the bridges have their own unique features.
These creatures wandering along the river seemed to be enjoying the sight on either side of the river as well.
Quiz time! What is the name of this bridge?
And this one?
Highly recommended a go at this! Especially if the weather is nice!
