Europe at a Glance with INSIDR.CO

It’s always such a delight whenever I come across another blog or website whom I share the same goals with. Though we share the same purpose, it’s always as if getting fresh eyes and seeing things from a different perspective!

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.

So, now that we’ve read about what we could get in New York for $10 a few months ago, let me give you another random trivia… Did you know that New York is called New York, because it’s named after York as King Charles II gave the land to his brother James, who happened to be the Duke of York?

Sure, just like all the useless knowledge that I’ve got in mind, I didn’t get any medal of appreciation from spending on Google for a little too much.

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! 😀
