  • 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 »

     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 chose to do this rather than book my own trip in Rome - I wanted to experience one organized/sight-seeing trip rather than a relaxing vacation like many of my others had been. Two friends and I signed up for WSA Rome and don't regret a thing. We met wonderful people, were led by an awesome tour guide Rhianne, and got to see everything I wanted to see in Rome. Plus eat all the best food. There is an optional dinner on the last night that we didn't do right away, but we ended up going to it, and it was SO worth the 20 euro. I made memories and friends, and got to see a beautiful, historic city thanks to WSA!!
