  • A Ride to Geraci

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

    Saturday I woke up and cooked myself an extra egg. I had a feeling I was going to go on a long bike ride that day.

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

    We made our way down to Dublin on Saturday. On the way we took a detour through Belfast. Stephen wanted to show me where the real Troubles happened. In that city, it looked like there was another Berlin Wall running right down the middle separating the two parts of the population. Protestant … More »

Happy Backpackers

I had such an awesome weekend with my WSA group! Our leader was so great, really cool and nice. We got to see everything and it didn't feel rushed at all.
