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…

The trip to Budapest was amazing! I did not know what to expect from Budapest because my roommate just told me to go with her so I was up for anything, but it ended up being one of my favorite trips so far of my study abroad experience. The hostel we stayed at gave us an excellent taste of the Budapest night life while Bogi took us to places that I definitely would not have been able to get to on my own or had known about if not for her WSA tour. It was a great weekend and I highly recommend it.
