“You eat your hamburger like an American”

"Thanks, I guess" I responded as I sheepishly put my hamburger back down on the plate.


If there's one thing the French excel at, it is bacon-egg-cheeseburgers. While they'll very nearly break your wallet, they've also evidently developed an attached etiquette. The top bun sits a magnificent 6 inches off the plate and it's quite a mouthful. At home, I'll compress that tower 'o burger into a more manageable 2 inches and bite into it. But my friend informed that's definitely NOT how it's done as we enjoyed an afternoon at a cafe on Montorgueil, one of my favorite pedestrian streets in Paris. The steak knife by my plate was apparently not there for decoration. Consider yourself warned--use your silverware when downing hamburgers in Frahnce!

Happy Backpackers

The most fun, exciting, educational, and craziest weekend I had during my semester abroad. You definitely get the maximum bang for your buck with WSA. WSA provided me with an unbelieveable weekend in Budapest. After hearing from my friends about their amazing experiences on WSA trips, I had to see what all the hype was about. I chose to take part in a WSA weekend in Budapest, and I loved every minute of it. The guide, Bogi, was the best! WSA is the perfect blend of an educational/tourist expereince while also allowing for sites off the beaten path as well as kickass nightlife. You won't regret a trip with WSA.
