Off to the Races!

Thursday, BF and I had the day off as we were heading to Galway for the races. BF's friend and his girlfriend planned the trip, and we were meeting up with a bunch of others as well. We were arriving on Ladies Day, and the ladies were dressed up in their finest! I didn't know what to expect so went more low key then most of the people at the event. Although it was a horse race, I didn't see one horse - too busy drinking and people watching! BF and I placed bets to make the races more interesting and we won 96 Euros (which we proceeded to lose on other bets).

The races were over by 6 so we headed into Galway town for a night of drinking on the streets. The town roped off a large portion of the pedestrianized streets, and we were allowed to bring our drinks outside. Luckily we had amazing weather!
