  • To Venice for Carnevale!

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

                As I don my mask, crossing the Rio Grande on the Rialto, I instantly become a different person. To my right, my friend looks like a cheap Italian imitation of Batman with glowing red eyes. To my left, another friend has sprouted green and blue feathers out of her porcelain … More »

  • Home Sweet Rome

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

    I expected this trip to be different from the others: a semester abroad, based in Rome…on my own.

Happy Backpackers

I studied abroad in London for the 2015-16 academic school year. We had long weekends for travel and my friends and I planned out dozens of trips on our own, which can be exhausting. For our last travel weekend in Europe we decided to give WSA a try. It was perfect! Everything was planned...
