    By McKalee Mooney WSA intern

        Out of all the places I’ve traveled thus far during my semester abroad, Budapest captured my heart. It also just so happened to be the beautiful, historic city that I was able to spend my 21st birthday in. Talk about a cool birthday present, right?? Sure, I … More »

  • The Key to Happiness: Buy Experiences Not Things

    Posted by admin on February 16, 2017.

    by Ellie Jordan WSA Intern

    It took me a 3,500 mile flight, a four hour bus ride, a tumultuous boat ride, and a steep, uphill hike to the edge of a cliff on an island off the western coast of Ireland to understand what the purest form of happiness felt like.

    I had on a backpack containing my … More »

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!
