    Posted by Andy Steves on March 30, 2011.

    After our successful adventure in Dublin for St. Patrick's, I hopped on a RyanAir flight down to the Iberian Peninsula. Catalunya was going to be my home for the next two weeks. I was particularly looking forward to Barcelona because it's the first time I've been able to stay put for more … More »

  • St. Patrick’s Day 2011

    Posted by Andy Steves on March 23, 2011.

    Our St. Patrick's extravaganza kicked off on Wednesday evening at the Porterhouse, Dublin's best microbrewery. In this spot, you won't find any Harp, Guinness or Smithwicks. In stead you'll find their own brews that bring home award after award from the brewer's championship competition. … More »

  • The cool thing about Starbucks

    Posted by Andy Steves on February 21, 2011.

    One good thing about Starbucks is the price. While generally too expensive, you’ll notice that the prices are the same across a country. An espresso will cost more or less the same  whether you find yourself in Time Square, NYC or Lynnwood, WA. The same goes for Europe. No matter how … More »

Happy Backpackers

I had an absolutely amazing time on my WSA trip to Krakow, Poland. I felt like a got a lot out of my money and it was so nice not to have to worry about anything because WSA takes care of it all. Our guide was absolutely fantastic and was there with us for everything we needed-it was great to have someone around with you who knew the city so well. This is definitely a trip I will never forget. I already want to start planning my next WSA trip. What amazing destination to pick next is the hard part!
