  • Spain to Morocco: Portal to Africa

    Posted by Andy Steves on February 28, 2012.

    As I closed my eyes on the train to Algeciras, Spain from Granada soft black blobs molded into each other as if wiping a blank slate behind my eyelids, almost as if I was subconsciously preparing myself for the colorful chaos that was going to be Morocco. Two days earlier I had been furiously … More »

  • An Ode To Sevilla

    Posted by Andy Steves on November 28, 2011.

                A couple weeks ago I decided to brave the wilderness yet again and hopped on a bus to Sevilla- heart of flamenco, art and culture- to meet Rachel, an old friend from California.  Rachel was coming to Spain for a week so we planned a weekend rendezvous in the city I had so many … More »

  • Malaga Adventures

    Posted by Andy Steves on November 9, 2011.

    We arrived in Malaga (this is the closest city to Granada that Ryanair- the most AMAZING, ridiculously cheap airline in Europe- flies into so I will be returning there a lot!) and went straight to the Picasso museum.  I was not the biggest fan of Picasso after seeing his work in Barcelona, … More »

                I am writing this on my Lufthansa flight from San Francisco to Madrid!  After a wonderful (and hectic) weekend packing, shopping, saying goodbye, weighing my suitcase, unpacking, crying, and more packing, I’m finally on my way.  It’s strange to begin an adventure that I … More »

  • An Afternoon in Sevilla

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 14, 2011.

    I was just in sevilla giving a talk to some students beginning their semester abroad. I had been here before, but had really forgotten what a cool town it is. The Spanish love-of-life permeates this city and the streets are flowing with people of all ages at all hours.

Happy Backpackers

This past weekend, I traveled to Budapest with WSA with a couple of friends from my university abroad, and I couldn't have asked for a better trip! After arriving at the hostel, we met Bogi, our tour guide for the weekend, who was instantly friendly and welcoming. Throughout the weekend, Bogi was an amazing guide! She showed us some great places for shopping and food, as well as the top sights around the city. You could tell she loved her job and never passed up an opportunity to share about her hometown and some of its history. She was so friendly and was sincerely interested in us as individuals and did everything she could do accommodate our priorities for the weekend (whether it was food, shopping, nightlife, sightseeing, etc.) I would highly recommend WSA's guided tours for any student studying abroad who wants to explore more than their university's city!
