Galway and GCI
Galway is a beautiful city situated on the west coast of Ireland. When I arrived in Dublin, I took a bus from the airport and the travel journey was about 3 hours to come to Galway.
The school, Galway Cultural Institute, is situated near the city centre of Galway. It is very easy to get to city centre from GCI, it takes about 25 minutes by walking.
The weather in Galway is very busy: rainy, sunny, snowing, cloudy and sunny again... all in one hour!
It's really surprising, but it is also something new for me.
I think it's one of Irish styles which guide books don't tell us, but you get to enjoy every minute of it!
Galway actually reminds me a lot of the place I grew up back in Japan. I moved from my hometown in order to study at a university in a big and busy city in Japan, so when I arrived to Galway I felt like home again. The ocean, the scenery and the way it looks, it all reminded me of my hometown and I felt secure and safe.
