Up early today. Packed ready to head north and had breakfast at our favourite local pub Courtfield. Had front seats for the All Black/Australia game. Great result! We thoroughly enjoyed watching the Aussies getting well beaten - very encouraging for the ABs and their World Cup quest. There were several other Kiwis there although we managed to get the prime seats - had a great chat during the game with guy from the NZ who now lives in New York. He knew a lot about NZ rugby and we were on the same wavelength throughout the game
We took the tube out to Heathrow to pick up rental. What a nightmare! It took two hours to eventually get a car and head away to Cambridge. We had a welcome afternoon tea in a wee cafe in the heart of University area of Cambridge and then headed off to our hotel in Huntingdon. Staying at the Huntingdon Marriott which is a bit plush for what we will need to get used to later on our trip but a good deal so we will enjoy.
