  • 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. That night I shared it with a kind man from Belfast in London to apply for a … More »

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

Happy Backpackers

This past weekend, I traveled to Budapest with WSA with a couple of friends from my university abroad, and I couldn't have asked for a better trip! After arriving at the hostel, we met Bogi, our tour guide for the weekend, who was instantly friendly and welcoming. Throughout the weekend, Bogi was an amazing guide! She showed us some great places for shopping and food, as well as the top sights around the city. You could tell she loved her job and never passed up an opportunity to share about her hometown and some of its history. She was so friendly and was sincerely interested in us as individuals and did everything she could do accommodate our priorities for the weekend (whether it was food, shopping, nightlife, sightseeing, etc.) I would highly recommend WSA's guided tours for any student studying abroad who wants to explore more than their university's city!
