Today we drove from Romford to Nottingham via Cambridge. Apparently TomTom irritates my Dad as it keeps beeping about traffic cameras. He decided that my mother should co-navigate with TomTom which drove me crazy.
At any rate, we stopped in Cambridge and went for a guided tour via punt. It was actually quote busy, but quite relaxing and informative. I'd highly recommend it to anyone. You just kick back, put the feet up, and listen to the guide tell you about each of the colleges on the tour.
From there we told TomTom to go to Nottingham via the shortest route, rather than the fastest, which was kind of neat. We saw a ton of little English towns that we'd never have seen otherwise. Narrow streets, with stone and brick buildings, roofed with everything from thatch to tile. It was really pretty cool. Some of the roads though, wellâ€¦ I'll admit that I wasn't much of a fan of them. Passing oncoming traffic on a one lane road at 50MPH is a little nutty in my opinion.
At any rate, we made it safely to Nottingham and had a great visit with my Uncle and Aunt. Tomorrow we're planning on being up and out the door by 9:30 AM on our way to Edinburgh. Hopefully I'll have WIFI there in the B&B that we're staying at.
Oh yeahâ€¦ and happy birthday to my brother Brian too!
