I’m in Ireland, by myself, and I want to see something new.  So I take a bus up to Galway, a city I’ve never seen before, and decide to stay in a hostel with five strangers.  A great way to make friends, right?

It ended up working out nicely.  I met two guys from Germany and two girls from Liverpool and we all went out for dinner and a few drinks.  We ended up going to three different pubs, all of which played traditional Irish music.   The last place we went to, the King’s Head, finished off the night with "All you need is love" by The Beatles and "Always look on the bright side of life", a Monty Python Song.

It was such a great night.  Everyone should visit Galway at least one day in their lives.  I’ll definately be going back.
