48 Hours In Cambridge

When Erin was maybe just over a year old we went on a last minute trip to Cambridge. We didn’t have the largest amount of time but we had a great visit and we’d said we would love to go back when Erin was a bit older. Now that Erin is nearly 4 we thought we would be in a better position to explore the city a bit more and to do more while we were there. This time, we managed to book our trip for John’s birthday so it was a great time to

Last minute getaway to Cambridge

John and I were supposed to go to Cambridge for a weekend for my birthday/ Mother’s Day but it never happened due to illness.
