  • Parents: A Welcome Sight

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

                About a month into my study-abroad experience, my family came to visit me.

Happy Backpackers

I absolutely loved my WSA experience. I traveled to Rome over Easter Weekend and was able to do so many incredible things while I was there. We stayed at the Yellow Hostel which is kind of far from a lot of things but it was so much better than I was expecting it to be. I would definitely...
