Time has been going by fast here in Galway! It is hard to believe that we have been here for over a month now. I have to say that I am happy about knowing my way around and being in the swing of things. The weather has not been forgiving over the last few weeks, but I am hoping that it can only get better from here.
Although it is cold and rainy, I have been able to see some really cool places recently! Last weekend, I went to Cork through the International Student Society. I stayed in my first hostel and I have to say that it was not as bad as I thought! It is a great way to meet a lot of new people from all over the world. My group also went to the Blarney castle and kissed the Blarney stone! As much of a touristy thing it was, I loved exploring the castle and the park surrounding it.
Galway is still my favorite place in Ireland and I love the city more and more every time I visit Shop Street. There is always new food to try and music to listen to! There is a great mix of touristy things to do along with getting to experience the local culture.
