Almost all the famous palaces, churches and monasteries in Spain are built on the skeleton of a building that was destroyed before it, yet the Alhambra is pure original beauty. The tour begins through a good-luck arch (if you walk through it holding hands with a lover you will married within a year) and ambles through rooms carved with intricate lettering, designs and mosaics. The wood paneling is cut to form stars so the light filters through and palace rooms alternating between shady alcoves and flower filled courtyards. The palace is incredibly beautiful- a kaleidoscope of color and history and I can’t wait to go back!
I went to Rome with a few of my friends. Before we got there, our tour guide, Rhianne, sent us plenty of information regarding how to arrive at the hostel, and what our Itinerary would be like. She also made it a point to meet up with people the night before if their flight got in early so students would have something to do. Having a tour guide that lived in the city was amazing. It made me not have to stress about getting lost, and provided many opportunities to eat at the best restaurants, and, most importantly, the best Gelato places. By the end of the tour, I was good friends with each of the 14 members of the tour group, including our tour guide. I definitely recommend taking a tour through WSA because the guides make you feel like they actually care about each person on the trip. I knew that I could just relax, and enjoy my trip.Kyle Cook, Lebanon Valley College ~ Kingston University, London, Fall 2015
