Belfast and Northern Ireland
“One of the things I love about Belfast is that it’s a big enough city that there’s always something going on but it’s also small enough that you still get the community feeling. There’s always someone there to help if you feel lost or lonely at any time and I don’t think you get that anywhere else”Will Hancock, Carmarthen, Wales
