Galway City 

 

Galway是愛爾蘭西部一個小鎮,有一條河流橫跨小鎮,當我到埗時,河水水位挺高,我這個人類在橋上看水,但覺河水洶湧,落水實死;但兩隻天鵝卻悠然自得的水中慢游,認真犀利!

 

Galway的天氣變幻莫測,我到埗首天晴朗,最後一天卻忽然大霧,全無先兆,認真誇張(見上圖)。

 

小鎮內兩條短短的步行街商店林立,有二手店、傳統飾品店、雪糕店等,旁邊還有大型商場,不少商店外牆都繪上大型壁畫,認真漂亮!

 

在Galway巴士站,可即日報名參加一日旅行團,遊覽周邊壯麗風景,每團旅行團人數不多,通常十人內,團價也不貴,最便宜十多歐就有了,但膳食自理,不過有時根本無時間食飯,有得食也很趕,老外卻大多不以為然,無人投訴;與我在香港的經驗截然不同,每個由香港出發的旅行團(不論目的地)都極度重視膳食,當地風味餐必備,中菜必備,前菜湯品主菜甜點水果必備,每餐至少食一小時;老外團不重視飲食的習慣,在我看來認真不可思議……

 

 

Galway is a little town located in Ireland west. There is a river flowing across the little town. The water level was quite high when I arrived in Galway. Me, as a human being had no doubt that I would die if I fall down in the river as I was standing on a bridge and looking down the fast flowing water. But there are 2 white swans swimming with ease in the river, how awesome!

 

Galway weather could never be guessed. There was a sunny day on my first arrival day but a misty day in my last day in Galway. There are no hints on weather change, how unpredictable!

 

There are 2 little walking streets in Galway with second-hand-clothing shop, traditional Irish accessories shop and ice cream shop. And there is a big shopping mall too. Lots of wall paintings on the old buildings and they’re beautiful!

 

There are many 1-day local tour available for walk-in tourists in the Galway bus station. There are usually less than 10 guests in each tour. The tour price is not expensive with the cheapest tour is around 10+ EU. Lunch usually are not included. There would be some restaurant stops but the dinning time is super rush. Most Europeans are OK with that without any complaints.

It’s totally different with my experiences in Hong Kong. Food is utter important in every tour depart from Hong Kong (no matter what’s the destination). Local delicacy is a MUST, Chinese food (at least one meal in the whole trip) is a MUST, appetizer soup main course dessert fruit are MUST. Every meal would have at least an hour. It is so strange for me that the Europeans do not pay much attention on food…
