Back in Seattle

Yes, I've made it home safe and sound and am enjoying taking in the beautiful views of the Puget Sound here 20 minutes north of Seattle. WSA's innaugural tour season wrapped up with spectacular successes across the board with sold out tours, 100% positive reviews and more. I really couldn't have asked for a better start to Weekend Student Adventures. It is incredibly rewarding to see this concept I've developed transform into something real and manifest itself in real enhancements to the study abroad experience for over 80 happy WSA tour alums. Over the next few weeks I plan to take a break from the egg nog and recount a number of rich experiences I've had over the last several months. In the mean time, be sure to read our testimonials section, as well as check out our slew of new tours for next semester.

 

Merry Christmas everyone and Happy Travels!

 

Thanks to all who've made WSA a possibility, and I'm very encouraged by the direction that we are taking.

Happy Backpackers

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.
