EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT LIVING IN INDIA AS A WESTERNER

India is a country you either love or hate. This is what I was told when I decided to do my first international internship there. Back then I was studying Tourism and Leisure management in the Netherlands, and as part of it, you had to do at least one internship abroad. Two of my closes friends also decided to go to India so we were placed in the same hotel in Mahabalipuram. I won’t go into my internship itself, but I will try to describe what it was like as 3 Caucasian girls trying to live in India. Mamallapuram or Mahabalipuram is a small town located between the Bay of Bengal and the Great Salt Lake, in the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It’s known for its temples and monuments built by the Pallava dynasty in the 7th and 8th centuries. The Seafront Shore Temple comprises 3 ornate granite shrines. Krishna’s Butter Ball is a massive boulder balanced on a small hill near the Ganesha Ratha stone temple.

YOUR ULTIMATE GUIDE TO AUSTRALIA

Australia, once you have been to this magnificent country you will not want to leave. It has it all. From shiny white beaches, rough outback terrain, hustling and bustling cities and never-ending breathtaking scenery. The country, however, is a whole lot bigger then most people think, and there is no way you can see everything in one trip. I have been here for 8 years and I haven’t seen everything yet (not even close). So I thought I would compile a list of some of the must-see cities, attraction, national parks and much more…  Be prepared to have your mind blown by spell-binding pictures.
