The last couple days I’ve spent working and relaxing in Galway, striking a balance between toiling away on my computer and strolling through the quaint streets. The slower pace and smaller city is more to my liking, making cameos on the edges of tourist pictures as I sit near the ocean eating a Gelato (probably the best 3€ I’ve ever spent).
I bought a coat for 15€ at a small shop here, and while thin and easy to wear, it’s amazingly warm. I needed it when walking on the windy ocean-side.
I’ve spent much of the past couple days finding a reliable internet connection. The hostel connection is often slow, McDonald’s doesn’t have power outlets, and most of the coffee shops are very small (thus making loitering for hours inappropriate). But I’ve developed a system that I intend to stick with. I like it here. I think I’ll stay a few extra days.
Spanish Arch – Here’s the arch by the ocean. It’s very old, which is why there are signs pointing to it.
I had fish & chips at McDonaghs for lunch. Sat at the area overlooking the bustling old shop street. I like not trying to force myself to do too much. I’m planning on doing the usual tourist destination trips this weekend, but for now this is good.
