  • Bite off more than you can chew?

    Posted by Andy Steves on February 22, 2015.

    We all know that when studying abroad one of the most exciting parts by far is food. Each country has its own signature dish that you simply must try! Unfortunately as a college student you can’t really eat out every meal for the whole semester, although that would be nice. If you’re not … More »

  • Unusual Summer European Festivals

    Posted by Andy Steves on June 10, 2014.

    It’s no secret that the festivals happen in Europe between June and August. Whether you’re into dancing until sunrise at Tomorrowland or chasing a wheel of cheese down the hill in the English countryside, these festivals will have you amidst the action all season long.

  • ¡Viva Espana!

    Posted by Intern on November 26, 2013.

    Even a sanitation workers' week-long strike cannot hide the beauty and stature of Spain's capital city of Madrid. It's certainly never a welcoming sight when you step out of the metro station into the city centre and come across piles of trash strewn about as if a concert has just taken … More »

  • The Roman Lifestyle

    Posted by Intern on October 1, 2013.

    There are many new things one must become accustomed to while in a foreign country, and as far as being in Rome, it's a whole new lifestyle. 

    To start their days off, Romans wake up fairly early, have a caffè, maybe a little cornetto (pastry), and a cigarette. A very small meal, … More »

    "Thanks, I guess" I responded as I sheepishly put my hamburger back down on the plate.


    If there's one thing the French excel at, it is bacon-egg-cheeseburgers. While they'll very nearly break your wallet, they've also evidently developed an attached etiquette. The top bun sits a … More »

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!
