So we arrived at the old hotel The Royal Cambridge where we would be for three nights during the MGA Conference.
Botanical Gardens * St. Johns College Chapel & Backs * King's College Chapel
King's Parade * Clare College from the Backs
Royal Cambridge Hotel where we checked in and then walked around in Cambridge...Just click the link and for learning more about its ancient history, click on my comment.
We ended the day on a terrace while savoring a shared ice cream, big enough for two people!
Then we went to our twin bed... We were very close and laughed as we sure did not request this!
We walked next morning on Thursday, September 26, 1985 the 10 minutes to hotel Garden House where the Conference was being held.
The ladies started at 9:30 a College Tour on foot.
From above post card at the top right you can see King's College Chapel where we went for a tour.
Built in 1446 with the longest 180 meter nave within Europe and without pillars!
King's College Chapel (click on link) took over a century to build.
We had a coffee in King's College at 10:30 and we went back to Garden House Hotel for lunch at 12:30.
In the afternoon I went shopping with husband Pieter and found a gift for our sister-in-law.
We met with our Hungarian friend and many more from other countries.
Great first day till 23:00.
Next day I went with Pieter to the lectures at 9:15.
Lunch outside in the sun and with Pieter to the center, finding a new battery for Pieter's Rado watch.
Also found a knickerbocker for myself in green.
We had gotten a nice tip for taking a short cut to the hotel, through the meadow!
Mr. & Mrs Vedder...
By 23:30 we went back to our hotel, through the meadow...
Next morning after breakfast we packed up and checked out to go back to Gatwick and flying to Amsterdam for a short family and friends visit!
Thanks for your visit and comment.
