  • Riding in Italy

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

                Back at Notre Dame, I race on the cycling team. Initially, I considered studying abroad during the fall semester in order to not miss the racing season, but then I would have missed the football games. This year I also made the Irish Guard, which marches during the half-time shows … More »

  • Monuments to Speed: Ferrari and Ducati

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

                This morning my alarm went off at 5:45. My first reaction, a mix of anger and confusion for such an early awakening, immediately faded when I remembered why I was getting up so early. Today I was catching a 6:35 train for Bologna to visit the Ferrari museum, and the factory and … More »

  • The Best Dinner of My Life… and a Bad Pork Sandwich

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

                On Friday I had the best meal of my life. I staggered out of the restaurant holding two things in my hands: my belly, and a button that popped off my new suit jacket.

    Claudio, the owner of Ristorante il Gabriello near the Spanish Steps, welcomed us down into his subterranean … More »

  • Parents: A Welcome Sight

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

                About a month into my study-abroad experience, my family came to visit me. For a college student, seeing your parents has many benefits: one, it's great to be back with family again, but also it means a break from budget eating. I was about to have some of the finest dining … More »

  • Sledging with Olle

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

    That night we had a pasta dish with chicken. I’m not sure if it was the altitude…but it was really delicious. We hurried to finish our dinner to meet up with Olle for a “nice evening hike” at about 8pm. There were about 12 of us, all with sleds eager to find out what this hike might be.

Happy Backpackers

I had a blast visiting Prague for the first time with WSA. To start, the hostel that WSA booked for the tour was incredible. The entire staff was very helpful, the rooms were nice, and there was a really cool bar downstairs with live music every night. Our tour guide was top notch as well. He was really fun and flexible with whatever our group wanted to do while making sure we saw all of the major sights, good places to eat, as well as the night life! I thought this trip was much easier to book through WSA rather than figure it all out myself and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get the most out of their trip!
