Dundee-Edinburgh-Galway

Day 8: Nothing much, just travel


View 2011 University Expedition on philobermarck's travel map.

After checking out of my hotel this morning, I decided I did not really want to walk about Dundee with my bags, and since there was no real reason to stay, I headed out of town, back to Edinburgh. Today is mainly a travel day and as such, I did not really plan much else, but I ended up in the Haymarket area of Edinburgh around midday and looked foe something to do.

I wandered about the area for a bit and discovered there was not much of interest. Again, since I had my bag on my back, I did not want to walk more than few blocks from the train station since that was where my bus to the airport was. I spent some time trying to get some wifi so I could kill time checking email and such, but did not find anyplace that advertised it, free or otherwise. I had some coffee, read and finally gave up and took the bus to the airport where I am now waiting for my flight.

The Edinburgh Airport, though small, appears to be a nicely equipped airport. Restaurants, pubs, some shops, etc., and wifi, of course.

My flight leaves in a few hours to Galway where I stay overnight then head to Ballyvaughan tomorrow. Ballyvaughan is the home to the Burren, which refers to an ancient rock plain, a national park or a college of art depending on your meaning. Over the weekend, I will explore the countryside around (or of) the Burren, and on Monday I meet with Anna Downes of the college of art to discus the MFA program and the like. But more on this later...
