I had an unforgettable trip to Cambridge today.
The weather was fine today. My classmates and I went on a guided trip to Cambridge by coach. It took us about three hours to get there.
As soon as we got there, we were divided into several groups, with a professional guide to show us around. First, we were shown the King’s College, whose chapel (礼拜堂) impressed me most. It is the most spectacular (壮观的) building that I have ever seen. Then we visited other places such as Trinity College, and Fitzwilliam Museum. In the end, we walked along the Cambridge river and enjoyed the beautiful view.
Although tired, I spent the most exciting day in my life. I hope one day I can study in Cambridge University — my dream college.
