WSA is Back for Fall 2011!

Ciao tutti! Andy here and I'm excited to say after a long summer of organizing, scheming, planning and executing, we're just about the kick off the most epic semester abroad ever! Along with more departures than ever before and an incredible first year of tours with over 350 students partaking in our weekend city adventures, we're launching two new destinations: Amsterdam and Venice. We selected these two cities due to popular demand, and I gotta say I'm pretty excited to launch both of these canal'd cities. In keeping with our mission to plunge into local cultures, we're taking private glassblowing lessons, gondola tours, "giro d'ombra" extravaganzas and sampling some famous pancake goodness all for the purpose of making these weekend experiences ones you'll never forget.


Check out our new facebook page too! We just launched our new landing page featuring highlights from our last year of tours. Thanks to everyone for helping our innaugural year off to such a great start.


Signing off from Dublin where we're coordinating plans for the biggest WSA St. Patrick's Day Adventure ever. Andy

Happy Backpackers

I went to Rome with a few of my friends. Before we got there, our tour guide, Rhianne, sent us plenty of information regarding how to arrive at the hostel, and what our Itinerary would be like. She also made it a point to meet up with people the night before if their flight got in early so students would have something to do. Having a tour guide that lived in the city was amazing. It made me not have to stress about getting lost, and provided many opportunities to eat at the best restaurants, and, most importantly, the best Gelato places. By the end of the tour, I was good friends with each of the 14 members of the tour group, including our tour guide. I definitely recommend taking a tour through WSA because the guides make you feel like they actually care about each person on the trip. I knew that I could just relax, and enjoy my trip.
