As American philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson said “Life is a journey, not a destination"

Galway pin map

As part of my role with Music for Galway, I slow travelled from Galway to Hamburg in February 2023. I was so used to just getting online and booking a flight, I was initially quite daunted by the prospect! But the more I planned my journey, the more I was looking forward to it. It took me 2 days to get to Hamburg, and a little longer to get home, as I stopped off in the UK to visit friends. I really enjoyed the whole experience; in fact, I was so taken by it that I inter-railed with my husband and two children from Italy to Denmark over 4 weeks in August 2023. As a way to travel, it takes longer and can be more costly financially, but what you gain in experiences, enjoyment, and emission-saving, it is certainly worth it.
