Meeting at the fountain in Eyre Square at 11am, we’ll head down Shop Street and take in the famous market (stopping for coffee at least twice) and head down towards the quays. Over Wolfe Tone Bridge, around by the pier and South Park. There are some marvelous buildings, churches and whatnot en-route so hopefully something for everyone. As my fingers have been crossed on this one for the last month or so, we should get some decent weather for a walk along Seapoint Prom. If people are feeling extra energetic, we may even make it down as far as Salthill for some sandcastles and icy Atlantic winds.
Alternatively, we’ll head from South Park back towards the docks and into some different areas of the city. There are no hard and fast rules with the walk. We have no time schedules, no transport to organise, no group entry to anywhere or anything. People are completely free to wander off to do some shopping or stay with the group. In fact the only time restriction is the start of the Blog Awards later that evening!
As before, there’s a dedicated number for anyone that gets lost or delayed to call. That number is +353 86 1551616. It’ll be available from 9am on the morning of the walk until the end of the walk that evening. Hope to see you there. And remember, you don’t need to be a photo blogger to come photo walking
If you’re of the photography persuasion and you’ve never been to a blog awards night before, coming along to one in Galway is a no-brainer. If you have already been to a previous awards night, you know exactly what an amazing night it is so I’ll see you there.
Accommodation is already sorted too. I hope Damien won’t mind me borrowing this info from the awards website
