When we flew into London, our first stop was Cambridge, home of the infamous Cambridge University. Such a charming and lovely town.
In this town it was all about the bikes and the baskets.
Everywhere you went, there were bicycles. And I adored the big wicker bicycle baskets.
I was even tempted to get one to bring back home...
...but I was interested in the large oversize one and that would not have fit into my luggage.
Well, moving along on our way towards the charming cobblestoned streets of Cambridge...
Here is the most famous of Cambridge University's colleges, the imposing Trinity College.
I noticed that that the pairing of roses and lavender was a favourite planting scheme.
It was lovely walking around in the city centre.
The market. Mostly food and flowers, but also some crafts. On the Monday there was a little antiques booth where I found a few lovely vintage things. Will take photos and show them to you later...
There was some lovely shopping in Cambridge. My favourite store that we stumbled upon was this one.
Cally Co has fabric, sewing and some crafting supplies. With a vintage vibe.
And I loved that they had sample pots of my favourite paint - Farrow and Ball.
My next favourite shop in Cambridge was Cath Kidston.
It's actually the second largest Cath Kidston store in Britain and was filled with lots of vintage-inspired goodness in the Cath Kidston style.
The best vintagey change rooms I've ever seen.
We stayed with husband's B.F. at his apartment in Cambridge. After a few days there, we were off to the train station to take the train to London.
Just thought I would show you the bicycle parking lot at the Cambridge train station. Amazing!
