We made an excursion to Cambridge which is a wonderful and very well arranged accumulation of British architecture. Our time was short and so we doubted at first if we should visit King’s College Chapel where there was a service accompanied by the famous King’s College Boys Choir. It would have been so wrong to miss that. The architecture of the chapel and the otherworldly chants impressed us deeply.
Our second favorite thing was the ice-cream we got from a Jack’s Gelato on Bene’t Street. Yummy Earl Grey and prunes flavor. Could it get more British?

At the end of the beach there is a small, old cemetery with a very special and serene atmosphere.

I can really recommend this country for people who love to go somewhere, where there is no touristic infrastructure in every corner.

The Monastery was build in 13th century and is picturesquely located next to the gorge of Kasagh river.
