From English dictionary to the infamous Stephen Hawking, I think we all agree that at some point in our lives, we get familiar with the word Cambridge.

But then again, on this week’s $10 series, we will go to the original York because the lovely Nadia from Saying Yes would love to share with us some fatty from the city of England. Nope, I’m not fat shaming anybody here, don’t worry! 😀
