    Cambridge Warnings and Dangers

    Getting in and out of the punt wasn't as tricky as you might think, we didn't wobble much at all and I don't think we were in danger of tipping over. But as we were sitting in the punt, Donna's sunglasses fell in the river, fast reflexes prevailed and Donna was able to retrieve them. Not so lucky was Joy who's cellphone went overboard as she was...

    Cambridge Warnings and Dangers

    In preparation for my journey to Cambridge, I did review all of the tips on VT's Cambridge travel page. The "warning or danger" category only had two entries: punting and rising bollards.

    If you get into any trouble at all call the fire, police or ambulance on 999.

    If you swim in the river, or accidently fall in (e.g. while punting, which is surprisingly easy to do if you've never done it before), try not to swallow any water. It's not very clean.
