Cambridge

I was lucky to visit Cambridge not as a tourist, but as a student. Inside the wonderful buildings of for example King’s College, Trinity College and St. John’s College (see below) there is the rich history of the University of Cambridge. Nowadays, the institutes are still important in science and the life of the students is big fun due to the inspiring environment.

Ireland

A beautiful country. The first picture is of the country of Galway. Galway itself is a very nice city, much more cosy than Dublin. The second one is of a place on the Southern-West Atlantic coast, close to the Dursey Island. It can be found from the Ring of Beara. When driving from Galway to the South, one can find the Cliffs of Moher, as shown in the last two pictures.

The old houses in the harbour of Bergen (called Bryggen) are known from every jigsaw and postcard. The area close to the aquarium is in a similar style.
