Summer in Salthill🍦

Salthill is one of my favourite places to go for a walk. I went there yesterday and it was very busy as it was a sunny day. I went with one of my best friends Niamh (Niamhus) after we went for brunch. We walked the promenade and went on the ferris wheel that is beside Leisureland before buying a cool drink at Centra and sitting by the sea. The Salthill prom in County Galway is a lovely place for a walk, especially when the weather is good. ☀️

Looking forward to life after quarantine🔮

There are many things to look forward to after the Coronavirus pandemic settles.
Meeting friends on a regular basis, visiting family members, travelling abroad, staying at hotels, driving beyond 5km without getting stopped by the guards, going to the cinema, going for drinks, takeaway coffees, going for food, buying things we don’t need, getting dressed up (rather than tracksuit or pjs), clothes shopping, food shopping, playing sports, going to concerts, attending events with large gatherings of people, attending birthdays and weddings, reopening of schools and Universities, back to work, going to the beach, going for roadtrips, going to parks, going to markets, going to the hairdressers and salon, going to mass, museums and galleries.

Comment below what you look forward to the most💭
