YHA Birthday Competition

Tags: Student Travel,WSA,hostel,budget travel,Europe

On April 10th, 1930 a group of volunteers came together to create a place for young people to escape from the inner city that is fun and affordable. Now eighty-five years later, Youth Hostel Association has existed to create unique opportunities for the youth and is proud to have provided students, schools, families and travelers with unique opportunities to explore the outdoors in England and Wales for such a long period of time. YHA has come a long way since opening, from basic facilities of the old to the new and fun buildings of now!

YHA is so happy with everyone that has stayed and participated in their organization that they’re throwing a contest to help celebrate! They have created a “Spot the Difference” competition where you identify four differences between two photographs! YHA will be giving away a £100 in YHA vouchers to one lucky winner every day during their birthday week (April 13th – 17th April) AND they will have runner up prizes of two YHA memberships per day meaning you’ve got 15 chances to win! 

It’s easy to enter and tons of prizes being given away! Click this link and enter now! Good luck and happy travels form WSA!(:

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!
