On our second day in Galway we walked from the hotel straight through the pedistrian street without heading the call from the stores, heading for the bay. No pointless dallying to tap our strength!
There are many walks you can take, following the water. We chose the shorter option and followed one of the canals. As all distances ended up being shorter than anticipated (as opposed to Dublin and other big cities) we covered a lot of ground follwing the canal.
Mainly the path led us through residential areas, giving us a different view of the town. One of the views was of the chimneys. I have been to London many times so the multiple chimneys were not new to me – but they are so photogenic 🙂
