About the Author
Andy Steves was born into a traveling family, heading to Europe each year while his father, Rick Steves, updated his guidebooks, made TV shows, and researched new tours. His father's passion for travel, in-depth cultural experiences, and efficient, affordable travel rubbed off on Andy during these family trips each year once he graduated from the stroller. A semester abroad during his undergrad at the University of Notre Dame opened his eyes to the fascinating world of independent, budget travel and the need for the next generation of travel tips and tricks became painfully clear to him. Upon winning Notre Dame's annual business plan competition with an idea for a student tour company, Andy launched Weekend Student Adventures in 2010 and now has guides and itineraries all across Europe.
