Polish Roomates

 Before I post about Day 2 of WSA’s first ever tour, let me rewind a couple days… They had sold out of private rooms at the hostel by the time we made our bookings so I gladly opted for a bunk in a 4-bed hostel room. That night I shared it with a kind man from Belfast in London to apply for a lawyer position. He left the next day as I went out to do more research. I spent each day out on the town exploring new neighborhoods. But when I got back that day, three Polish soccer hooligans had moved into the room, and one without pants sitting on my bed. I always preach let travel happen to you for richer experiences. Well, that also means you can’t control just how rich those experiences are. In my first glance around the room I took in 2 empty bottles of gin, 3 more unopened ones, a number of 6-packs of beer and a couple tins of refried beans. It quickly became clear that it was going to be a long week…

Happy Backpackers

I had an absolutely amazing time on my WSA trip to Krakow, Poland. I felt like a got a lot out of my money and it was so nice not to have to worry about anything because WSA takes care of it all. Our guide was absolutely fantastic and was there with us for everything we needed-it was great to have someone around with you who knew the city so well. This is definitely a trip I will never forget. I already want to start planning my next WSA trip. What amazing destination to pick next is the hard part!
