Marion Bay

23rd November 2016, George Sagris

Driving, It took us four hours to get to Marion Bay from Adelaide. Initially, I thought the drive would be long and drawn-out. However, during the trip, my parents blasted old music that they grew up on, or songs that they liked and then reminisced about their life up until now.

Advice from a girl from Rotterdam, Netherlands

7th November 2016, Joana Kroon

Why should Rotterdam be a destination for travellers and expats alike? People should move or come to Rotterdam because it is a unique city. It is the only city in the Netherlands with a skyline. For example, Amsterdam and Utrecht are nice cities but they don't have this unique skyline. Moreover, Amsterdam is generally really crowded. Rotterdam is also busy but it is definitely less busy than Amsterdam. Besides that, Rotterdam is a port city, it is currently the biggest I think in Europe and the sixth biggest in the world.
