Activities Update by Flo, Lea, Marine and Will
Last wednesday, we went on a trip to Galway, a city in West Ireland. We drove for about four hours, making tons of senic stops, (one of which included the Cliffs of Moher) and finally arrived and checked into our hostle. We got settled and went to have dinner at local resturant where some us enjoyed the local specialty of fish and chips. Galway proved to be an interesting city with tons of street acts and fun things do at night. The next day we woke up and had some free time to walk around and further explore Galway. We got right back in the car and drove on over to the ferry that would take us to the Aran Islands. With some spectacular luck we got the best weather yet! The Aran islands were as beautiful as they were fascinating. We checked into another hostle, then rented bikes for the day. Some of us rode over to the historic site of Dun Aengus and enjoyed a great view, while others relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful weather. The islands were a great place to sketch and to take photos. Some lucky members of the group got to go out late and learn how to do night photography with Frank (the fatigue the next day was entirely worth it.). In the morning we packed up, then went out to explore the rest of the island. We took the 12 O’clock ferry back to the mainland and enjoyed another meal in Galway. We arrived back at the farm tired but happy late that night and all hit the hay pretty hard. Check out our updated photos page.
