  • On My Own….

    Posted by Intern on November 11, 2013.

    Since I've been over in Europe, I have taken the idea of independent travel (or, more literally, traveling independently) and have embraced it a little more than when I think about it before August. Solo traveling is a concept that either some have shuddered at (like me) or that some have … 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.

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

Happy Backpackers

I definitely have WSA to thank for my exceptional experience in Amsterdam. One would think 4 days isn't enough to tour a city but WSA facilitated an optimum weekend full of sightseeing and fun. Amsterdam may have a notorious reputation for its lax drug and sex culture but there‚Äôs so much more to the city. Luckily, our tour guide, Arthur, native to the Netherlands, steered us away from the tourist traps and showed us around his beloved city, highlighting all of its gems. I'd definitely like to try other WSA trips in the future. It's hassle free traveling with an awesome itinerary - nice that the tour guides are flexible with the schedule and willing to cater the itinerary to the group's interest! Highly recommend WSA to any student with only a weekend to see a city.
