      ... about 114hours...almost 6 days straight!). We went to bed late that night which was not the smartest idea, since we had to get up extra early to catch our train to Galway and meet up with Shannen's dad.

      Before leaving Dublin, we checked only a small part of the 1,750 acre Phoenix Park. We didn't do any sightseeing that morning, since we knew we would be returning on Saturday before our flight.

      I napped on the train to Galway, ...

      ... Cheers to Desmund the bus driver!

      I've turned into a bit of a night owl since coming here. For some reason I really struggle getting out of bed in the mornings. The earliest classes start at 9am and I usually don't have class until 11am. There is also no sun shinning into my window in the mornings. I've either been chilling at home or going out to the pubs at night. I enjoy all the live music around here and since classes are so easy ...

      station the clerk told us that we needed to get on a bus headed for Galway and
      then switch busses at the Enis stop for Doolin.
      We all know that I like to be ready for things like this. I want to understand where I am going, how I
      am getting there, bus numbers, ticket prices, ...

These Islands are the most remote parts of Ireland so the Gaelic language is still widely spoken there. Actually, they consider it to be there first language. It was really cool to get to hear some people speaking it, I cannot compare their language to any other, It's just so different sounding. The ...

      After taking a few moments to take in the fact that I had made it to Galway without any major issues, I started to wonder how I was going to get to the hotel. I got out my blackberry and decided to see if Mapquest works in Ireland. It does not. That is definitely an American website. There are other map websites that I probably could have used to find the hotel but I just kept eying those taxis and debating if it would be worth ...
