River Cruising – The Millenial Edition

Mention the words 'river cruising' to anyone under the age of 35 and visions of grey-haired, bum-bag toting tourists spring to mind. River cruises have always been thrown into the 'old person' category of travelling and it didn't look like they would ever evade it. Until now...

12 Signs You’ve Lived Away From Australia For Too Long
