We’ve been visiting some more pubs around Cambridge, and indeed we forgot to post one of our summer ones! Still, this post has 5 great pubs we’ve visited in Cambridge, and they’re all pretty great. The Kingston Arms is one of our locals and a beauty at that. It has a lovely beer garden out back and serves delicious food too! Another local we’ve visited with top-notch food is The Geldart. We went up there on a Friday night and […]

Now that winter is upon the UK it is time for winter sports. Liz has taken up hockey so I decided that I could either sit on my ass or play soccer. I was a bit skeptical at first, as I thought I would have to play in the snow and ice, so I decided to sign up for an indoor soccer league. While playing there I met a guy who convinced me to play for his outdoor soccer team, […]

So, as this is my first post ( Rob here ) I decided to focus on food, one of my favorite pastimes!

Amazingly a few weeks ago we bought a 9″ pizza( 4 slices ) for 14 pounds! YES 14 POUNDS that’s approx $8 per slice. So it […]

Read the post again… Whil I’ve got you here, I may as well drop some miscellaneous images on you. Recently it was Halloween, and because we’re on such a family oriented street, and we never had trick or treaters in Melbourne, we […]

The other reason to see Christ Church College and the Bodelian Library is because Harry Potter was filmed here! XD So, all the photos on the left are screen caps from the movie, and all the photos on the right are snaps of us in the real location! The main stairwell up to the Dining Hall was used when Harry and his classmates first enter Hogwarts. The smaller images are screenshots from the movies, and the bigger images are pictures […]

Part 2 of our Oxford trip is definitely the more interesting part because we visited a couple of the famous colleges. In particular, we visited the Christ Church College and the Bodlelian Library. They were fantastic. We can see why these sights are the top things to visit in Oxford. Christ Church College Christ Church College is magnificent. Dripping with almost as much detail as King’s College in Cambridge, the stone work and architecture is stunning. The corridors and courtyards […]

When we moved to Cambridge, we immediately started hearing about that ‘other’ university city. It was older than Cambridge. It was bigger than Cambridge. Apparently, it was better than Cambridge. Feathres a tad ruffled,  we decided to go visit this older sister for a weekend. A bit of learning was to be had. Bedford It was just the beginning of autumn so it was beautiful driving through the english countryside with the different coloured trees. We decided to stop over […]
