This week I decided to continue my travel endeavors and head to Galway. Fortunately, my teammate Megan's brother came to visit from America and he rented a car. We started our road trip with the Cliffs of Moher and made a pact to stop at every castle we saw along the way. The Cliffs were unbelievable. It always amazes me how many people who live less than 3 hours away from all these wonderful places have never been. Living in Ireland has made me appreciate the outdoors and nature 10x more. There's just so much to see here.
I also got the chance to spend a couple days with the Galway and Waterford scholars. As usual, it was just really good to be around likeminded people from home. We spent most of our time huddled in the same room eating food and talking and it was just what I needed. I didn't have the time or energy to dress up for Halloween this year but I did enjoy seeing everyone else's costumes, especially the babies and little kids. On Halloween night myself, Brittney, and DaLacy went to a haunted house in Galway. The tickets were very affordable and it was actually pretty scary so that was as festive as my Halloween celebrations got. I have a busy schedule with coaching and class for the next couple weeks but I look forward to doing more traveling when I get free time again
