I decided to have a day all to myself in Galway, to do a bit of shopping, looking around and enjoying life in general. Even if the weather was overcast it was a warm day and very good shopping weather. I clearly was not the only one who had come up with this idea, because the streets was filled with people.
There was a food festival on in town all easter and you could find trucks and tents serving good food that you wouldn’t normally find everywhere. It was very packed so I didn’t try to much, but it was nice to stroll down and have a look.
I found most of what I wanted in the shops around, but after a while I felt a bit claustrophobic with all the people in the streets and in the shops, so I went over to Eyre Square to st down with a coffee and enjoy some space and the warm day.
Because there wasn’t too much sun the park was luckily not overcrowded and I got to have a seat on a nice bench where I coud read my book and drink my coffee.
When I headed back to Tuam to enjoy a nice dinner and a night out with friends, I was very happy with my me-day spent in Galway! And I was very happy with the things I got when out shopping. The only thing I did not find that was on my list was a new spring jacket. But I guess I’ll just have to keep looking 😉
