By Sander Schepers - Committees - 3 May 2023

We all love to travel right? Because you can learn and see new things, enjoy the weather, try amazing food, or because “you want to find yourself”. Well, in reality, this is not true.

Although it is absolutely worth it to go to the other side of the world for some likes on social media, you can also stay closer to home!
