I have lived in Cambridge for nearly six months now, yet I feel like I’ve hardly spent any time exploring the city without a destination. To be honest, I’ve felt so busy with school and life that it always felt hard to make time, which is silly – I know I need to be better at scheduling breaks and adventures, no matter how small. And so that’s how I came to find myself wandering this little city with my camera, a few Saturdays ago now.

The lamppost in the first photo is in the center of Parker’s Piece and is known as the “reality checkpoint,” hence the title of this post. It was my first stop on my adventure; I locked up my bike nearby, and let my intuition guide me after that. Down the streets, through Jesus Green, along the river. I have no idea how far I walked. Only when the sun began to set did I return home.

It felt wonderful to be lost.
