  • UK Education: a thought or two

    Posted by Andy Steves on February 13, 2011.

    A very interesting point came up over dinner the other night with friends here in London. We were talking about the difference between education systems here and back in the States—or rather the experience in undergrad study abroad, and grad school that my friends had had. This is another one … More »

  • 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 »

  • Celebrating a good start

    Posted by Andy Steves on February 1, 2011.

    Last Spring I competed in and won Notre Dame’s business plan competition.

Happy Backpackers

I went to Rome with a few of my friends. Before we got there, our tour guide, Rhianne, sent us plenty of information regarding how to arrive at the hostel, and what our Itinerary would be like. She also made it a point to meet up with people the night before if their flight got in early so students would have something to do. Having a tour guide that lived in the city was amazing. It made me not have to stress about getting lost, and provided many opportunities to eat at the best restaurants, and, most importantly, the best Gelato places. By the end of the tour, I was good friends with each of the 14 members of the tour group, including our tour guide. I definitely recommend taking a tour through WSA because the guides make you feel like they actually care about each person on the trip. I knew that I could just relax, and enjoy my trip.
