    It’s pretty common for Americans to refer to the US as a melting pot, where many ethnicities and cultures all blend in together. For Americans studying abroad in Europe, there isn’t a more perfect opportunity to visit the country where your ancestors … More »

  • I made it!

    by: Erin Kelligher, Dublin Intern

    As a relatively new traveler, the thought of flying alone internationally was just another obstacle I had to overcome to live in Limerick, Ireland for four months, first with a weekend detour in Dublin. Family and friends asked if I was nervous, which I was, … More »

  • Departing Dublin

    Posted by Intern on November 3, 2013.

    Dublin, Ireland, has now officially joined the list of cities around the world that I have absolutely loved. Granted, this list includes every city that I have been to, but nonetheless, these past 30 hours or so in the Irish big city has shown me that all cities aren't quite the same, but can … More »

  • Running Dublin

    Posted by Andy Steves on August 26, 2011.

    On my run this morning I went out along the bay to one of Dublin's lighthouses. It was a beautiful, sunny day—the type you wouldn't normally associate with this city. On my way back I came across a mother and her three young children. One—sippy bottle in-hand—threw out her arms and demanded, … More »

  • St. Patrick’s Day 2011

    Posted by Andy Steves on March 23, 2011.

    Our St. Patrick's extravaganza kicked off on Wednesday evening at the Porterhouse, Dublin's best microbrewery. In this spot, you won't find any Harp, Guinness or Smithwicks. In stead you'll find their own brews that bring home award after award from the brewer's championship competition. … More »

Happy Backpackers

I went to Rome with a few of my friends. Before we got there, our tour guide, Rhianne, sent us plenty of information regarding how to arrive at the hostel, and what our Itinerary would be like. She also made it a point to meet up with people the night before if their flight got in early so students would have something to do. Having a tour guide that lived in the city was amazing. It made me not have to stress about getting lost, and provided many opportunities to eat at the best restaurants, and, most importantly, the best Gelato places. By the end of the tour, I was good friends with each of the 14 members of the tour group, including our tour guide. I definitely recommend taking a tour through WSA because the guides make you feel like they actually care about each person on the trip. I knew that I could just relax, and enjoy my trip.
