  • The Five-Floor Mega Club

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

    The next night I did it all over again, but this time with a pack of Brazilians in a five-story club. The Chileans had to catch a flight to somewhere else early that morning.

  • Prague, Fine Beer and a Dirty Mustache

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

  • That Pit in your Stomach

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 11, 2010.

    I’m no stranger to the pit-in-your-stomach feeling when diving into something unfamiliar. In fact, I’m getting a little bit of that right now. I’ve studied in Europe, I’ve visited Europe and traveled around. I’ve even worked in Europe as an assistant guide for my dad’s company for 2 summers, … More »

Happy Backpackers

I had such an awesome weekend with my WSA group! Our leader was so great, really cool and nice. We got to see everything and it didn't feel rushed at all.
