  • Why everyone should visit their Mother Country(ies)

    by Shannen O'Brien, Madrid Intern

    It’s pretty common for Americans to refer to the US as a melting pot, where many ethnicities and cultures all blend in together. For Americans studying abroad in Europe, there isn’t a more perfect opportunity to visit the country where your ancestors … More »

  • I made it!

    by: Erin Kelligher, Dublin Intern

    As a relatively new traveler, the thought of flying alone internationally was just another obstacle I had to overcome to live in Limerick, Ireland for four months, first with a weekend detour in Dublin. Family and friends asked if I was nervous, which I was, … More »

  • Departing Dublin

    Posted by Intern on November 3, 2013.

    Dublin, Ireland, has now officially joined the list of cities around the world that I have absolutely loved. Granted, this list includes every city that I have been to, but nonetheless, these past 30 hours or so in the Irish big city has shown me that all cities aren't quite the same, but can … More »

  • Running Dublin

    Posted by Andy Steves on August 26, 2011.

    On my run this morning I went out along the bay to one of Dublin's lighthouses. It was a beautiful, sunny day—the type you wouldn't normally associate with this city. On my way back I came across a mother and her three young children. One—sippy bottle in-hand—threw out her arms and demanded, … More »

  • St. Patrick’s Day 2011

    Posted by Andy Steves on March 23, 2011.

    Our St. Patrick's extravaganza kicked off on Wednesday evening at the Porterhouse, Dublin's best microbrewery. In this spot, you won't find any Harp, Guinness or Smithwicks. In stead you'll find their own brews that bring home award after award from the brewer's championship competition. … More »

Happy Backpackers

I've been in Europe since the beginning of January and have traveled every weekend. This Easter Weekend was by far the best one. The hostel was perfect and super convenient, I made a ton of new friends, and our guides (Andy, Rhianne, and Elena) made sure we saw absolutely everything in the city. The meals included were all absolutely delicious, and Andy even brought snacks every once in a while to hold us over in between meals. We were given our Easter Mass tickets the night before and strategically planned to be in the front for mass. We followed Andy's suggestions and got to sit in the very front for Mass. The wait was worth it and so was every cent of the trip's cost. I barely spent any of my own money, just on transportation to and from the airport, gelato, and food on my last day there. I would 100% recommend this company to all of my friends!
