Video: Seven Weeks in Europe

From the beginning of July 2015 to the end of August, I spent nearly seven weeks in Europe.  My first four and a half weeks were enjoyed in An Cheathrú Rua, a tiny seaside Gaeltacht in County Galway, Ireland.  After studying the Irish language for a year, yes there is actually a native Irish language, I received the opportunity to live in one of Ireland’s beautiful Irish-speaking communities and attend class at the local branch of the National University of Ireland Galway.

My short, unforgettable time there was followed by an adventurous two week backpacking excursion through Eastern Europe by myself.  Many told me I was crazy, but I returned home in one piece with incredible admiration for other cultures and a burning desire to learn every single language in the history of the world.

These are snippets from my time across the pond, which was far too short.

The destinations in this video include: Galway City, County Galway, The Aran Islands, Wexford Town / Pula, Croatia / Brussels, Belgium / Budapest, Hungary / Vienna, Austria / Prague, Czech Republic
