  • Imagination Becomes a Reality

    Posted by Intern on October 23, 2013.

    For many years now, I have wanted to come to the United Kingdom and Ireland, the British Isles. I never really knew why nor did I have a real reason why, but there was something about this region that drew my attention unlike any other place in the world. It has class, elegance, grandeur, … More »

  • UK Education: a thought or two

    Posted by Andy Steves on February 13, 2011.

    A very interesting point came up over dinner the other night with friends here in London. We were talking about the difference between education systems here and back in the States—or rather the experience in undergrad study abroad, and grad school that my friends had had. This is another one … More »

     Before I post about Day 2 of WSA’s first ever tour, let me rewind a couple days… They had sold out of private rooms at the hostel by the time we made our bookings so I gladly opted for a bunk in a 4-bed hostel room.

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

Happy Backpackers

I had a blast visiting Prague for the first time with WSA. To start, the hostel that WSA booked for the tour was incredible. The entire staff was very helpful, the rooms were nice, and there was a really cool bar downstairs with live music every night. Our tour guide was top notch as well. He was really fun and flexible with whatever our group wanted to do while making sure we saw all of the major sights, good places to eat, as well as the night life! I thought this trip was much easier to book through WSA rather than figure it all out myself and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get the most out of their trip!
