My Valentine to Cambridge

Here’s the first set of photos I managed to get off my camera from Cambridge (there’s still a few more to come). As you can see, this is an absolutely amazing place and I am having a great time. I’m working 9-5, 6 days a week in the archives which doesn’t give me too much time to explore but I am making the most of every single second of free time that I get to wander around and take it all in. I am here for a little under two weeks now and then I move over to Exeter to present a paper at a conference and spend 3 days having all kinds of conference fun (free booze!!!!) with a dear friend. From there I head to Kew for a week working in the National Archives and then I relocate to London for a month for some time in the British Library. My grand plan is to be done with work relatively early in August so that when my love arrives to spend the last month with me I will not have to work the whole time and we can the whole tourist thing. Sometimes I forget how lucky I am to be doing the kind of work that I am doing – the hours and pay suck but I genuinely love it and the opportunities to travel and live in other places and meet all sorts of wonderful people just can’t be rivaled!
