  • London On Par: I think I’m in Love!!!!!

    Posted by Intern on December 1, 2013.

    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 »

  • First Chunnel Ride

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 6, 2011.

    Today I went on my first Chunnel ride and I gotta say it was smoooooth! to the point where it was almost too easy. I had an 11:13am departure, so I made my way on Paris' great metro system to the Paris Nord Train Station where I filled out a UK entry card and flew through security. I found my … More »

  • The cool thing about Starbucks

    Posted by Andy Steves on February 21, 2011.

    One good thing about Starbucks is the price. While generally too expensive, you’ll notice that the prices are the same across a country. An espresso will cost more or less the same  whether you find yourself in Time Square, NYC or Lynnwood, WA. The same goes for Europe. No matter how … 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!
