For half of the year I live in Cambridge where I study; outside of term-time I go back home to Devon, which is in the South-West of England (and is the most beautiful place on earth IMO).  After my journeys I realised that there really is no place like home (and that Devon has the loveliest water I have ever tasted).  Here I have decided to include some pictures of my home (Devon) and my second home (Cambridge).

A rare moment where only one bike can be seen in Cambridge.  This was the first time I had ever seen snow as Devon is too mild to get it.

When it snowed I went out with my camera at 4am (I was very excited).  Here is the bridge at St. John's college that is apparently modelled on the Bridge of Sighs in Venice.

This is a picture taken inside King's College.  There's a stonking great lamppost in the way because I was trying to cover up a rude-shaped snowman (I did take another picture of it though :)). 
 
 
Below:  Cambridge in the summer during a punting trip.  Punting is basically pushing along a big wooden shallow-bottomed boat with a stick.

Here is me punting - it's very difficult!

DEVON
 
Devon is where I live and of course I think it's the best place in the world.  It is close to the sea but also very rural (as you will see).

Below: some pictures of another nearby beach and the countryside that my dad took.
