What does a stick of rock mean? I cant find any german translation for that!

Hello Verena,
I'm not surprised you can't find a German translation - most countries don't have sticks of rock. They're popular in the UK, Ireland, Denmark and Australia.
If you enter 'rock' into the Cambridge Dictionaries Online box on the right of the page and look through the list, you will see a link to a definition of 'stick of rock'. If you still need help, you could try entering 'stick of rock' into an image search engine. Google, Yahoo, Bing etc. can all search for images, so you can see what sticks of rock  look like.
Let me know if you need any more help.
Best wishes,

It's a very beautiful video that it brings the atmosphere of summer. I always have wanted to have a house near the beach.

Dear everyone, who like the beach and want to live in the seaside.
My house is located in the seaside, It is so great.
In here, you can take part in a lot of activities such as football, volleyball,swimming.. You can eatting seafood with a low cost. Let's imagine, you can welcome the dawn with  fresh air in here or you can stroll in the sand at sunset. 
The life in the seaside is very interested.
