I love my university; not only for the awesome campus, faculties and facilities but also the other things they provide us with. I was thinking of travelling solo since some time now and a Give It A Go session: a trip to Cambridge seemed to be the perfect way to try it out. Cambridge is a compact cosmopolitain city, home to one of the best universities in the world. Though a modern city, it has a well preserved ancient charm with its walkable medieval streets, college courts , gardens and outstanding architecture.
I fell in love with Cambridge as soon as I saw it. As I got off the bus, I already knew my first destination: The King's College that we had just passed. I walked along the river Cam, also known as 'the Backs' and it just felt wonderful. King's College Chapel is a grand and beautiful building in Cambridge and ranks amongst the most important examples of late gothic architecture. The entire place was filled with music and was beautiful beyond expression with painted windows depicting the story of Virgin Mary. The visit was truly inspirational and for the first time, it made me 'feel' that I am actually in Europe!
On my way to the Fitzwillian museum I saw the Corpus Christi College Clock that instantly reminded me of the song 'mudhi mudhi' from the movie Paa that shows the clock. The Fitzwilliam is known as the Art Museum of Cambridge University and has been described as one of the "finest small museums in Europe." It houses a fine collection and a wide range of artefacts from around the world.
