Paris Book Giveaway!

Experience what it's like to study abroad in Paris before you go abroad from an American student's personal journal!

“I don’t understand how my French skills, or my mood for that matter, can change so dramatically and so quickly. [This study abroad experience] is like being on a roller coaster that has a surplus of hills and sharp turns. How come nobody told me it would be like this?”

What is The Paris Diaries?

Studying and living in Paris is a dream come true but how much do you know about the actual experience? Paris study abroad expert Andrea Bouchaud (@twentyinparis) takes you on the wild ride of studying abroad through her intimate diary entries. She shares her secrets (and those of Paris) to show you that being away from loved ones for the first time, the maintainence of a long distance relationship, bettering those (less than) intermediate French skills and settling into la vie parisienne isn't as easy as it looks. This new study abroad ebook, The Paris Diaries: The Study Abroad Experience Uncensored (out April 11th), shows you the experience of studying abroad in Paris as every American college student should see it before they go abroad -  Uncovered. Uncensored. Unapologetic.

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!
