Galway

Good Morning Campers!! Yesterday I travelled by train from Dublin to Galway. I walked the two miles from my hotel to the train station, with my luggage rolling behind me. Note to self - TAKE A TAXI!!!! The sidewalks are old brick pavers and give that constant reminder you are not in the states, but they are also difficult to roll your suit case on.

So when I arrived in Galway - I hailed a taxi! Good thing I did, my hotel is off the beaten path and it was down pouring rain. You will never guess who my taxi driver was -- The Former Mayor of Galway! Here they elect their Mayor for a one year term, so my driver was last years' Mayor!! He told me Chicago is Galway's sister city and he was downtown last year for a conference! He liked out town, but found the beer to be very expensive.
