    Posted by Andy Steves on September 14, 2011.

     

    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.

    On our journey to the Amalfi Coast, we stopped off at Mt. Vesuvius … More »

  • Pizza in Naples

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 14, 2011.

     

    I folded the warm crust of the pizza, making sure not to loose any of the mozzarella or tomatoes.  Slowly, I lifted the pizza and took a bite.  The pizza was simple – only tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella – but it was the most delicious pizza I had ever tasted.  The simple ingredients were … More »

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!
