  • Arrival in Rome and first thoughts…

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

    While the apprehension for this trip and the success of it is still there, I can feel it melting away to excitement to return to Rome. I think the waiting area populated by dozens of Italians with their endlessly interesting language and over-exaggerated expressions and gestures has brought … More »

  • Finishing Up at Notre Dame

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 11, 2010.

    Now back to my schooling at Notre Dame--I was studying Industrial Design and Italian Language and Literature.

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 11, 2010.

    My to-be Rome friends and I were accepted into  the Spring ’08 Rome program in March or April of ’07. From that point, we really just sat on our hands for the following 9 months. There was something on the horizon, an exciting something, but it was too far off, and it was too surreal to give … More »

  • That Pit in your Stomach

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 11, 2010.

    I’m no stranger to the pit-in-your-stomach feeling when diving into something unfamiliar. In fact, I’m getting a little bit of that right now.

Happy Backpackers

I've been in Europe since the beginning of January and have traveled every weekend. This Easter Weekend was by far the best one. The hostel was perfect and super convenient, I made a ton of new friends, and our guides (Andy, Rhianne, and Elena) made sure we saw absolutely everything in the city. The meals included were all absolutely delicious, and Andy even brought snacks every once in a while to hold us over in between meals. We were given our Easter Mass tickets the night before and strategically planned to be in the front for mass. We followed Andy's suggestions and got to sit in the very front for Mass. The wait was worth it and so was every cent of the trip's cost. I barely spent any of my own money, just on transportation to and from the airport, gelato, and food on my last day there. I would 100% recommend this company to all of my friends!
