Where I stayed
I have done a fair bit of cycling in the first two days despite leaving late on Monday i have still managed to cover about 160 miles and find myself in Cambridge. I stopped off to visit a mate at uni here and thought i had better take a look around at the same time.
For a cyclist Cambridge is amazing and is a pretty good taster for Holland, its flat and there are bikes and cycle lanes everywhere (there are even traffic lights for bikes)
I ended the day with a true Cambridge University experience and got roped in to playing cricket for the Cambridge University Medics Cricket team, as you do! It was great fun to get back on a cricket pitch (must have been 5 years since i last did it). The weather was perfect and the ground was amazing. Each college at Cambridge has their own cricket pitch (yes its THAT posh!) we were playing on the Queens ground which was just out of town in the country side, it looked perfect! As is always the way in cricket, i was there to make up the number however i always seemed to be fielding where the ball was played and did play my part in a runout which i was pretty chuffed with
Tomorrow is pretty special for a couple of reasons, I will hopefully be able to get my exam results in the afternoon and find out what degree (if any) i got. I have then booked the perfect way to celebrate, catching a ferry at 23:45 bound for the Hook of Holland, didn't plan that very well! Anyway i have about 11 hours to get from here to Harwich its going to be a scorcher so hopefully i'll make it!
