Going north along the Cam from Cambridge (and joining the Great Ouse) takes you to the cathedral city of Ely. According to the Cambridge Rambler's page Pilgrims Way, Ely was a staging point for pilgrimages to Walsingham going via Brandon, Weeting, Cranwich, Swaffham, Castle Acre and Sculthorpe. Up until the start of the 18th Century, the Cam was navigable ...

Firstly, the intersection of El Camino Real (82) and Lawrence is in Santa Clara, not Sunnyvale - but near enough. There is no correct answer to this question.

The Gotthard tunnel is located in Switzerland, and while its goal is to reduce the time to travel between Zurich (Switzerland) and Milano (Italy) to ...
