Road Trip - Cambridge & Oxford

Visited Cambridge and its sister city, Oxford. Cambridge University is made of the city itself while the Oxford University is part of the Oxford City. Both universities are the top universities in the world and UK. Met Josh's ex-colleague, Kak Lin, who is pursuing PhD. She showed us around and Cambridge University is such a beautiful place! Thanks Kak Lin for the tour and the dinner....

Here's Kak Lin, showed the secret door to the Cambridge dungeon...hehehehe...




Around Cambridge University & City...


The map of Cambridge University...under water...hehehehe...


The Mathematics Bridge over the River Cam at Queen's College, designed by Sir Isaac Newton. The bridge was constructed without any bolts or screws to hold it together. Well, i'm not so impressed since the old Malay traditional houses in East Coast Malaysia were designed without any single nails long time ago...


The King's College Chapel, the important ceremonies, such as Christmas Carol normally take place in this chapel.


Inside the University's chapel...


The main entrance to King's College...so many people visit Cambridge University everyday because of its great architecture...





Newton's apple tree...


Another bridge and the punting in action...



The only circular-shape church in UK...


The Cambridge Islamic Centre...

I just happened to stumble across your blog, well done! I love the pictures on your blog and you do a great job of updating frequently!

I just learned the other day that Oxford gets its name from the fact that it was the last place that oxen can ford the river, hence Oxford. You probably knew that though!

I will be sure to check for updates.
