DID YOU KNOW ⁉️ Punting as we know it in Cambridge, UK, was introduced between 1902-1904. There are more punts along the river in Cambridge than any other river in England, due to the river Cam’s shallow and gravelly nature creating the perfect environment for punting. The views of Kings College are spectacular from the Backs punting route, though visitors can also head up to Grantchester for a pub trip, where the river is far less crowded. We are leaving the beautiful Gulf of Thailand this afternoon to head back to Cambridge via London Heathrow - 24 hours of travelling and in-flight movies here we come! #didyouknow #travel #cambridge

DID YOU KNOW ⁉️ An infinity pool is a reflecting or swimming pool designed to merge with a larger body of water, or even the sky, to create the effect of water without boundaries. The first infinity pool was said to originate in 17th century France, with the Stag Fountain at the Palace of Versailles, near Paris. The pool as pictured is at the hotel @samuiburi in Koh Samui and I love it 😍😍 #didyouknow #travel #thailand

DID YOU KNOW ⁉️ Angthong is a national marine park in the Gulf of Thailand. A green lagoon was formed in the marine park as a result of rain water seeping through limestone, eroding a huge cavern in the centre of one of the marine’s 42 islands.

DID YOU KNOW ⁉️ The Fortica in Hvar, Croatia occupies land used as an ancient settlement since before 500 BC though construction on the present fortress began in 1282. The castle is at the top of a gently sloping walkway and the views across the town are stunning.

DID YOU KNOW ⁉️ Dubrovnik Old Town, Croatia, became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979. The Old Town is encased by medieval ramparts, along which you can walk and peer down into the town - or across the city as in my photo above. The number of people permanently residing in the old town has dropped significantly, from 5,000 in 1991 to 500 in 2014. Explorers of the Old Town will find themselves spoilt for choice with the number of restaurants, bars and ice cream parlours within the town walls #didyouknow #travel #croatia
