  • Hola Barcelona

    Posted by Andy Steves on March 30, 2011.

    After our successful adventure in Dublin for St. Patrick's, I hopped on a RyanAir flight down to the Iberian Peninsula. Catalunya was going to be my home for the next two weeks. I was particularly looking forward to Barcelona because it's the first time I've been able to stay put for more … More »

  • Leading to St. Paddy’s

    Posted by Andy Steves on March 22, 2011.

    A week ago I was running around like a crazy man making sure everything was in place for the upcoming St. Patrick's day extravaganza. My to do list was 2 pages long, and had things like "confirm bus arrangements," "rent megaphone," "hang flag out front of the hostel," "get picnic supplies for … More »

  • “You eat your hamburger like an American”

    Posted by Andy Steves on March 13, 2011.

    "Thanks, I guess" I responded as I sheepishly put my hamburger back down on the plate.


    If there's one thing the French excel at, it is bacon-egg-cheeseburgers. While they'll very nearly break your wallet, they've also evidently developed an attached etiquette. The top bun sits a … More »

  • Spring is in the Air

    Posted by Andy Steves on March 8, 2011.

    Salut tout le monde, I'm signing on from Paris as I run around today to get everything set up for my tour this weekend. This is the first time I've been able to run around outside in a short sleeve T-shirt and it's obvious that the temperatures are on the rise here in Paris. The cafes are … More »

  • The Czechs and Tap Water

    Posted by Andy Steves on March 6, 2011.

    I love Prague. I think the culture is enthralling; the people complex and interesting; the architecture is beautiful; the food is delicious; and the beer is the best in the world. What I don't understand, though, is why no matter where I am I get a slightly embarassed, slightly disgusted look … More »

Happy Backpackers

The most fun, exciting, educational, and craziest weekend I had during my semester abroad. You definitely get the maximum bang for your buck with WSA. WSA provided me with an unbelieveable weekend in Budapest. After hearing from my friends about their amazing experiences on WSA trips, I had to see what all the hype was about. I chose to take part in a WSA weekend in Budapest, and I loved every minute of it. The guide, Bogi, was the best! WSA is the perfect blend of an educational/tourist expereince while also allowing for sites off the beaten path as well as kickass nightlife. You won't regret a trip with WSA.
