    By McKalee Mooney WSA intern

        Out of all the places I’ve traveled thus far during my semester abroad, Budapest captured my heart. It also just so happened to be the beautiful, historic city that I was able to spend my 21st birthday in. Talk about a cool birthday present, right?? Sure, I … More »

  • The Key to Happiness: Buy Experiences Not Things

    Posted by admin on February 16, 2017.

    by Ellie Jordan WSA Intern

    It took me a 3,500 mile flight, a four hour bus ride, a tumultuous boat ride, and a steep, uphill hike to the edge of a cliff on an island off the western coast of Ireland to understand what the purest form of happiness felt like.

    I had on a backpack containing my … More »

Happy Backpackers

I had a blast visiting Prague for the first time with WSA. To start, the hostel that WSA booked for the tour was incredible. The entire staff was very helpful, the rooms were nice, and there was a really cool bar downstairs with live music every night. Our tour guide was top notch as well. He was really fun and flexible with whatever our group wanted to do while making sure we saw all of the major sights, good places to eat, as well as the night life! I thought this trip was much easier to book through WSA rather than figure it all out myself and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get the most out of their trip!
