2016 Internet Speed Test

I’ve gotten lazy on this one, and the last speed test was posted on the blog in 2013.

Luckily, I found a tweet from 2014 showing my speeds after we first moved into our new apartment which is serviced by  Wave G (formerly CondoInternet):

Here’s our 2016 speed test results, with the same equipment and same monthly plan ($80/month for gigabit pipe):

I’m in heaven compared to the old days with Comcast where I was paying more and getting at best 1/4 of the speed.

Sunset in Galway

The city of Galway on the west coast of Ireland was the favorite part of our trip last month.  It is a small, quaint city, with just enough bustle to make it interesting, and only a 3 hour drive from Dublin.   It’s also within a short distance to make day trips to Glenmore Abbey and the Cliffs of Moher a possibility.  If you’re ever in Ireland, I highly recommend you make a stop in Galway for at least a few nights.

On our last night in Galway before heading back to Dublin, we were fortunate enough to catch this amazing sunset along the beach right near our AirBnB.
