After a few days in Cambridge with Gigi (our read-aloud app, which takes its name from the TripTastic changed) we realise that we want to hear stories. Our knowledge needs to be expanded with stories, so to speak.

A walking tour of historic Cambridge is quickly booked and the first thing we hear is that there are two famous university towns: Cambridge "and the other place". It's clear that small rivalries are the order of the day here, too.

We get to know a few of Cambridge University's 31 colleges better and, of course, also the pubs where students "carry on". Jonny, our wonderful tour guide, a mixture of oddball woodsman, storyteller and wandering encyclopaedia will later say: "Thinking here, drinking there!"

Jonny also shows us on which street the most important people in Cambridge lived: Stephen Hawking and Jonny's grandmother. Door to door.

While during the day people walk around "freestyle", in the evening Cambridge feels more like a Harry Potter movie. Apparently, we learn, if you are invited to dinner, you have to dress up with a shirt, tie (in college colour and pattern, of course) and generally good clothes. As Jean Paul said, "Everyone still knows a ceremonial he grumbles about and one he wants to keep."

Immediately we hope that this chalice will pass us by.
