    Posted by Andy Steves on February 23, 2011.

    In the last 3 weekends I've had an awesome time showing students the locals' version of Gimmelwald, Prague and London. Thanks to Europe's incredible infrastructure, I'm able to hop around and meet my tour members in the cities for an exciting weekend exploring the hidden gems that each has to … More »

  • The cool thing about Starbucks

    Posted by Andy Steves on February 21, 2011.

    One good thing about Starbucks is the price. While generally too expensive, you’ll notice that the prices are the same across a country. An espresso will cost more or less the same  whether you find yourself in Time Square, NYC or Lynnwood, WA. The same goes for Europe. No matter how … More »

  • UK Education: a thought or two

    Posted by Andy Steves on February 13, 2011.

    A very interesting point came up over dinner the other night with friends here in London. We were talking about the difference between education systems here and back in the States—or rather the experience in undergrad study abroad, and grad school that my friends had had.

Happy Backpackers

I went to Rome with a few of my friends. Before we got there, our tour guide, Rhianne, sent us plenty of information regarding how to arrive at the hostel, and what our Itinerary would be like. She also made it a point to meet up with people the night before if their flight got in early so students would have something to do. Having a tour guide that lived in the city was amazing. It made me not have to stress about getting lost, and provided many opportunities to eat at the best restaurants, and, most importantly, the best Gelato places. By the end of the tour, I was good friends with each of the 14 members of the tour group, including our tour guide. I definitely recommend taking a tour through WSA because the guides make you feel like they actually care about each person on the trip. I knew that I could just relax, and enjoy my trip.
