Since I was a child I loved the idea of travelling, of visiting other places, of just getting on the train and seeing the world. When I think about travelling, different things are coming in my mind, such us: the experience to not miss the train, to make sure the tickets are correct, to wander around in the new place and to get a bit lost and wonder where I am. 

Lately, I decided to discover England as it is not my home country. A few weeks ago, I went to Cardiff and last week I visited Cambridge. Me and my friend had Cambridge on our to do list for quite a long time and last Thursday was the day we were going to discover it.  As I said, all the experience is important for me and even if we only had a couple of hours, we did enjoy the most of it. 

The moment we arrived in the city everything was like an adventure from the books that I used to read when I was a child. 

Not too far from the train station we went to visit the Botanic Garden and we were lost for an hour or so in the nature, feeling less stressed and more energetic. Spending time with my friend in that environment made me cherish our friendship more as I realised that true friends do not need a lot to get along. 

After the Botanic garden we went to visit the Fitzwilliam museum and I noticed objects from different cultures and years. The Egypt and Greek exhibitions impressed me the most and I left with a very good impression. I think that day made me realise how important it is to go out there and discover things that I would not know if I would always stay at home. 

Seeing all that nature made me realize that I should consider going out in parks more, just to relax instead of staying in house and be concerned about problems that I cannot control.  Me and my friend had a lovely day in Cambridge, the places that we saw will always remain attached to our nice memories. I would definitely recommend taking a day off from the usual schedule and going to a new place as experiencing is everything.
