  • Rome’s Ice Bar, Catching My Train, and the Bike Delivery

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

    Back in February, I sent out a short message to the other kids in my program saying I knew a guy who could get us rooms in the Cinque Terre if anyone was interested. Initially I expected eight or ten or twelve positive responses. Well, that turned into 16, then 19, then 24, and finally 27. So … More »

  • Amalfi: Italian for “Paradise”

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

    On this Friday morning, I boxed up my bike again and headed to the station for what is sure to be an awesome weekend. I had to get up at the ungodly hour of 6:45. To me, there are times when I'm tired--and then there’s being painfully tired. Well I’m the latter right now, as I type this up on … More »

  • Selling the ‘Rello on Ebay.it

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

    The end of our semester was approaching. My friends were saying “only a couple weeks more,” and things like that. To me that meant it was time to sell my bike. So I went down to Porta Portese to ask the bike dealers if they were interested. Porta Portese is the Sunday flea market where all the … More »

  • A Ride to Geraci

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

    Saturday I woke up and cooked myself an extra egg. I had a feeling I was going to go on a long bike ride that day. I picked a town in the interior of the island about two and a half inches away from Cefalu. Well that town turned out to be 38 miles away with about 30 being uphill, but I’m a … More »

  • Riding in Italy

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

                Back at Notre Dame, I race on the cycling team. Initially, I considered studying abroad during the fall semester in order to not miss the racing season, but then I would have missed the football games. This year I also made the Irish Guard, which marches during the half-time shows … More »

Happy Backpackers

I had a blast visiting Prague for the first time with WSA. To start, the hostel that WSA booked for the tour was incredible. The entire staff was very helpful, the rooms were nice, and there was a really cool bar downstairs with live music every night. Our tour guide was top notch as well. He was really fun and flexible with whatever our group wanted to do while making sure we saw all of the major sights, good places to eat, as well as the night life! I thought this trip was much easier to book through WSA rather than figure it all out myself and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get the most out of their trip!
