Thanks for visiting! My name is Colm; a Galwegian in Amsterdam, and I’ll be using this blog over the next 8 weeks to share my thoughts and ideas on distance learning with my classmates and any other curious souls.

  1. Hi Colm, nice to meet you here in our Distance Learning class. I see you are learning from even a greater distance than myself, as I am from Alaska. So are you from Galloway or Galway and how did you land in Amsterdam?


    • Hi Cara, that was a quick reply… I need to make the blog a little more pleasing on the eye still!
      I’m from Galway in Ireland and arrived in Amsterdam first to study at the University here a few years ago. That one year has extended quite a bit at this stage; love it over here 🙂 My housemate while I was studying here first was actually from Fairbanks in Alaska.

      I’m having trouble following your blog on my RSS reader. Do you know a url I can paste to follow your blog?


  2. Hi Colm,
    Here is the link to my blog: http://heitzidt.blogspot.com/
    Not sure why it is giving you trouble. I visited Amsterdam in
    2002 and loved it. My brother-in-law is Dutch and was able to give me a personal tour around – amazing! I imagine it is a bit warmer where you are at right now than in Anchorage or Fairbanks – winter has arrived.


  3. Wow! I would actually love to visit both Alaska and Ireland! I haven’t been out of the United States or ventured to the west of the country! I look forward to working with you, Colm and Cara, over the next 8 weeks!
