  • A Small World

    Posted by Andy Steves on February 6, 2011.

    Ater dinner at Matt’s we ended up heading out to a local bar. It had the same chill vibe as the dive bar me and my friends go to back home north of Seattle. While a dive bar, this place though had high ceilings, and the building was hundreds of years old. I’m endlessly fascinated by the … More »

  • Bangers & Mash

    Posted by Andy Steves on February 3, 2011.

    Tonight I enjoyed dinner at my London guide, Matt’s apartment in North London. We had Bangers and Mash, or what I’m learning is quintessential English cuisine. That translates to large dinner sausages and mashed potatoes. I love going to my friends’ houses across Europe because that’s when … More »

  • An Evening Jog on the Millenium Walk

    Posted by Andy Steves on January 22, 2011.

    Just got back from a 45 minute jog along the River Thames. It's an amazing thing to go for a run and pass such world-famous sites as Big Ben and the Parliament building, the London Eye, Shakespeare's Globe Theater and the Tate Modern museum. My apartment in which I'm renting a room is … More »

Happy Backpackers

I chose to do this rather than book my own trip in Rome - I wanted to experience one organized/sight-seeing trip rather than a relaxing vacation like many of my others had been. Two friends and I signed up for WSA Rome and don't regret a thing. We met wonderful people, were led by an awesome tour guide Rhianne, and got to see everything I wanted to see in Rome. Plus eat all the best food. There is an optional dinner on the last night that we didn't do right away, but we ended up going to it, and it was SO worth the 20 euro. I made memories and friends, and got to see a beautiful, historic city thanks to WSA!!
