Why it’s on the list: Never tried it and it seems half foolish, half romantic and possibly fun. Spent lots of my childhood holidays in Cambridge, watching the punts go along the River Cam. Now live near the Thames and there are pubs not too far away that hire out punts (one does an electric punt but that seems like cheating). Worth a go?
How/when I’ll judge this task to be completed: When I’ve spent some time punting along the Thames and not drowned.
