FROM LONDON TO CAMBRIDGE AND YORK
Our room in the hostel was perfect to spend one night, but we had some difficulties with the bunk bed ! It was quiet hard to get to the "first floor" because there were no steps or a I wanted to sleep in the upper bed, but I was to tall ! So Ilona had to sleep there. Each time she moved I thought I was on a ship and the waves were schaukeln me to sleep.
Today it was a very tiring day ! We left London at 6.30, after having a coffee on the parking. We are a group of people from a little everywhere, so far I know that there are 2 South African ladies, a few Malasians and some Americans.
The weather was dry and it was not so cold and we arrived in Cambridge around 10 am
First thing we did was taking "punting" boats and were pushed around like in an Gondola from Venice. The weather was a little grey, but it didn't rain and we enjoyed the ride on the rive Cam very much, We saw quiet a lot of the famous Univrsities and it was a real interesting ride.
After a walk through the town we returned to the bus and continued our way to York.
We had our lunch in the coach driving towards York where we arrived around 2.30 pm.
and visited the very beautiful old center.
We stopped at an old Pub under which had been discovered a Roman bath. It was very interesting to see !
We arrived around 6.30 at the hotel Ibis, very tired and had to wait for ages to get our dinner ! Also Internet connection had a horrendous price, 5 £ for one hour. Trying out Internet connection I suddenly found myself connected to Skype Wifi, which I didn't even know.
So I was able to write at least a little report about our first day of travelling !
