    I’ve heard it said before that when a guy looks for a potential wife, he tends to look for a girl that shares qualities similar to his mother. I don’t know statistics or anything, but I can understand the reasoning behind this. The familiarity that a person has with his mother’s positive … More »

Happy Backpackers

I had an absolutely amazing time on my WSA trip to Krakow, Poland. I felt like a got a lot out of my money and it was so nice not to have to worry about anything because WSA takes care of it all. Our guide was absolutely fantastic and was there with us for everything we needed-it was great to have someone around with you who knew the city so well. This is definitely a trip I will never forget. I already want to start planning my next WSA trip. What amazing destination to pick next is the hard part!
