  • Tuscany: Good to be Back

    Posted by Andy Steves on April 27, 2011.

    Writing to you from the side walk at a great little cafe in the heart of Florence. It's been 5 or 6 years since I've last visited the place, but I can say it is great to be back. Last night I had dinner with my friend and intern, John M. and I can say I had forgotten just how good Tuscan … More »

  • Graduation and Nearly Not Flying Home

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

    I knew I had to go back to Miscellania, the rustic little restaurant that became our student hangout, have dinner, and see its crazy owner, Mikki, one more time this semester before it was over. I saved my last meal at Mikki’s for the last Sunday in Rome.

Happy Backpackers

I studied abroad in London for the 2015-16 academic school year. We had long weekends for travel and my friends and I planned out dozens of trips on our own, which can be exhausting. For our last travel weekend in Europe we decided to give WSA a try. It was perfect! Everything was planned...
