  • Hola Barcelona

    Posted by Andy Steves on March 30, 2011.

    After our successful adventure in Dublin for St. Patrick's, I hopped on a RyanAir flight down to the Iberian Peninsula. Catalunya was going to be my home for the next two weeks. I was particularly looking forward to Barcelona because it's the first time I've been able to stay put for more … More »

Happy Backpackers

This past weekend a group of my friends and I decided to go to Budapest, but wanted to go with a group because we were unsure of what we wanted to do and how to plan our trip. Booking the trip through WSA was the best idea we ever had. It was basically all planned out for us (excluding flights). It was great because there were plenty of things planned for us that were included in the package, but there was also a bit of free time for us to explore the city and do the things we were most interested in. I really enjoyed the caving and thermal baths we visited during our trip! Also the hostel that was booked for us through WSA was great and our tour guide, Bogi, was amazing! I would definitely recommend this trip to everyone and am happy to say that I will be booking more trips with WSA in the future!
