Bright Sunshine And An Angelic Choir In Cambridge

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?

Better than the Mediterranean: Derrynane Beach in Ireland

On this bright and sunny April day on Derrynane Beach, a woman walked past me, threw her arms in the air and shouted: “The Mediterranean has arrived in Ireland!” And while Mediterranen people would never had set foot into the water at this temperature, Irish people are quite fearless.

Derrynane Beach is on the West side of the Ring of Kerry and it’s one of the best beaches I have ever seen. Dunes, white sand, big rocks, crystal clear turquoise water. Everything asian beaches dream of.

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