A travel magazine for teenagers
Imagine you are going on a trip abroad somewhere within the EU. Which highlights do you want to see? Where will you spend the night? How will you get there? Is there a lovely restaurant you are looking forward to visiting?

The SDG 17 is for sharing partnership and knowledge: For the purpose of this assignment, this could be a trip to a World Heritage site, a protected monument or a National Park, is there something like this in "your chosen country"?

You would probably go to the bookstore to buy a travel guide. Well now you are going to create one yourself!
