Day 9: Bad Connection in Connemara

Filed under: Uncategorized — skisters @ 6:45 pm

We left Galway earlier today, after a traditional Irish breakfast, to head to the Connemara region.  We’re staying outside of a little town called Leenane and we are basically in the middle of nowhere surrounded by mountains and not far from the ocean.  I’m not complaining, believe me.  It’s quite scenic and on our drive in we had to watch out for the sheep that were hanging out in the middle of the road.  However, the internet connection is really slow, so we will need to wait til tomorrow to upload the pictures and videos we have for you.

So far we’ve explored the area a bit when driving in and also went to the beach nearby (gorgeous!) and hung out.  Not your typical beach day though…far too cold for laying out in a bathing suit.  We’re staying in a cozy little hostel (and I think we’re the only people that don’t speak French here) and they have a bunch of DVD’s and games, so we’re just gonna hang out here for the night and relax.  We got a frozen pizza for dinner at the gas station nearby…because that’s basically the only thing that’s nearby.  And even that is 6k away.  Hoping to go for a run, hike, bike, or something tomorrow in this rustic little area before we head to our next destination!
