Alhambra

 Almost all the famous palaces, churches and monasteries in Spain are built on the skeleton of a building that was destroyed before it, yet the Alhambra is pure original beauty.  The tour begins through a good-luck arch (if you walk through it holding hands with a lover you will married within a year) and ambles through rooms carved with intricate lettering, designs and mosaics.  The wood paneling is cut to form stars so the light filters through and palace rooms alternating between shady alcoves and flower filled courtyards.  The palace is incredibly beautiful- a kaleidoscope of color and history and I can’t wait to go back!

Happy Backpackers

I studied abroad in London for the 2015-16 academic school year. We had long weekends for travel and my friends and I planned out dozens of trips on our own, which can be exhausting. For our last travel weekend in Europe we decided to give WSA a try. It was perfect! Everything was planned...
