  • To Amsterdam

    Posted by Andy Steves on May 5, 2011.

    I got in last Sunday after spending a few days in Florence and Tuscany. I'm continually blown away by the stark cultural differences throughout Europe. It would take about less time to drive from Florence to Amsterdam than St. Louis to Denver. While you may notice difference grocery store … More »

  • Back in Seattle

    Posted by Andy Steves on December 13, 2010.

    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 … More »

    Nov. 9 Anthropology

    In another life, I think I’d be an anthropologist. I love people watching. And I always find myself trying to figure out why one culture has no qualms about J-walking while while if you did the same thing in Seattle, you’d get slammed with a $60 infraction. While … More »

    WSA London: Day 2

    After breakfast, I rallied the troops for a morning tube ride over to Waterloo station where we met up with another one of my friends, Rob who walked us through the heart of the City. Rob has a wonderful knack for relating old buildings and stories to modern day culture … More »

     Before I post about Day 2 of WSA’s first ever tour, let me rewind a couple days… They had sold out of private rooms at the hostel by the time we made our bookings so I gladly opted for a bunk in a 4-bed hostel room. That night I shared it with a kind man from Belfast in London to apply for a … More »

Happy Backpackers

I've been in Europe since the beginning of January and have traveled every weekend. This Easter Weekend was by far the best one. The hostel was perfect and super convenient, I made a ton of new friends, and our guides (Andy, Rhianne, and Elena) made sure we saw absolutely everything in the city. The meals included were all absolutely delicious, and Andy even brought snacks every once in a while to hold us over in between meals. We were given our Easter Mass tickets the night before and strategically planned to be in the front for mass. We followed Andy's suggestions and got to sit in the very front for Mass. The wait was worth it and so was every cent of the trip's cost. I barely spent any of my own money, just on transportation to and from the airport, gelato, and food on my last day there. I would 100% recommend this company to all of my friends!
