Second Month Studying Abroad in Galway, Ireland

Created By:

Studying abroad in a new country without knowing anyone can be a very daunting task. My second month in Galway has given me the unique opportunity to take new risks, step out of my comfort zone, and explore Europe!

Exploring Galway

National University of Ireland Galway, University Road, Galway, Ireland

This month, I joined a variety of activities on campus such as Film Society, Global Lounge, and the International Students Society. I also saw a production of the play "The Producers," visited the Galway City Museum, and walked along the docks on one of the rare days it was sunny in Galway!

Weekend in London

London, UK

During the first week of February, my friends and I decided to take a weekend trip to London, UK! We visited the Tower of London and British Museum, took a ride to the top of the London Eye, and (for any Harry Potter fans out there) got to see Platform 9 3/4 at Kings Cross Station!

Long Weekend to Brussels and Amsterdam

Brussels, Belgium

To finish off the month of February, a couple other girls and I visited Brussels, Belgium and Amsterdam, Netherlands for a long weekend. In Brussels, we saw the spectacular Chinese New Year Light Show, ate too many Belgian waffles and fries, and even traveled to the top of the Atomium!

Long Weekend to Brussels and Amsterdam

Amsterdam, Netherlands

In Amsterdam, we took a cruise along the beautiful canals, ventured through a tulip market, sampled some famous Amsterdam cheese, and explored the Anne Frank House and Van Gogh Museum!
