  • An Evening Jog on the Millenium Walk

    Posted by Andy Steves on January 22, 2011.

    Just got back from a 45 minute jog along the River Thames. It's an amazing thing to go for a run and pass such world-famous sites as Big Ben and the Parliament building, the London Eye, Shakespeare's Globe Theater and the Tate Modern museum. My apartment in which I'm renting a room is … More »

  • Kicking off 2011 right

    Posted by Andy Steves on January 12, 2011.

    I just landed into London and I gotta say it's great to be back. My flight touched down at noon today, and I'm excited to already be presenting my travel philosophy and tips workshop to Florida State's campus here in London town. Spring 2011 promises to be a great semester starting with over … More »

    Nov. 9 Anthropology

    In another life, I think I’d be an anthropologist. I love people watching. And I always find myself trying to figure out why one culture has no qualms about J-walking while while if you did the same thing in Seattle, you’d get slammed with a $60 infraction. While … More »

    WSA London: Day 2

    After breakfast, I rallied the troops for a morning tube ride over to Waterloo station where we met up with another one of my friends, Rob who walked us through the heart of the City. Rob has a wonderful knack for relating old buildings and stories to modern day culture … More »

     Before I post about Day 2 of WSA’s first ever tour, let me rewind a couple days… They had sold out of private rooms at the hostel by the time we made our bookings so I gladly opted for a bunk in a 4-bed hostel room. That night I shared it with a kind man from Belfast in London to apply for a … More »

Happy Backpackers

This past weekend, I traveled to Budapest with WSA with a couple of friends from my university abroad, and I couldn't have asked for a better trip! After arriving at the hostel, we met Bogi, our tour guide for the weekend, who was instantly friendly and welcoming. Throughout the weekend, Bogi was an amazing guide! She showed us some great places for shopping and food, as well as the top sights around the city. You could tell she loved her job and never passed up an opportunity to share about her hometown and some of its history. She was so friendly and was sincerely interested in us as individuals and did everything she could do accommodate our priorities for the weekend (whether it was food, shopping, nightlife, sightseeing, etc.) I would highly recommend WSA's guided tours for any student studying abroad who wants to explore more than their university's city!
