What to Pack

How do you fit a closet in a suitcase?

WHAT TO PACK

"When facing the question, "how do I fit everything!?", keep in mind that Europeans also use hairdryers and tooth brushes. In fact, they have hair dryers with European double prong plugs! You definitely won't need to pack everything you own, and will likely be able to replace lost or forgotten items. Plus, remember that both semesters (Spring and Fall) start during some of Europe's BEST sale sasons (post-Christmas and end-of-summer events). Consider packing half of you think you'll need."

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.
