    Taking a step closer to the edge, I was surprised that I could actually see the bottom of the crater.  Moreover, I was shocked that I was standing on a volcano but not just any volcano.  I was at the top of Mt. Vesuvius.

  • Pizza in Naples

Happy Backpackers

The trip I took with WSA was amazing. We had an incredible tour guide and we got to see the most important attractions Krakow has to offer. We did vodka tasting, a golf cart ride through the jewish quarter, schindlers museum, Auscwhitz and Birkenau, and a tour of the whole city. We packed everything in in two days. I highly recommend this to people who are backpacking or studying abroad throughout europe. This is definetly targeted to a younger crowd, but was absolutely worth the money.
