Galway Arts Festival

Due to no wind for a few days, my captain gave permission to jump ship so the crew (all two of us) train hopped cross country to Galway, located on the west coast. We had recently discovered the famed annual Galway Arts Festival was underway and a friend living near the city center invited us to join her, and watch her performance in the Macnas Parade. Galway is known for its great pubs and craic any day of the week but this was an exceptionally thrilling time to visit. Theater, dance, music, comedy, visual arts and streets performances were in abundance throughout the city and I experienced as much as I could during my 4 day visit.
