I moved to Plymouth in a sad state, missing my family and home in Ireland and initial look of the city wasn’t great because it is quite small. However throughout the years in biomedical and dentistry I have grown to love it and as soon as I go home no I do miss it. I love the outdoorsy lifestyle when it’s sunny and the people , especially students are so friendly and welcoming
