Hello there! My name is Tommy and I am a 1st Year Human Geography student.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Wales? Well yes, it probably is rain, but on a more positive note, perhaps it’s those eccentric people wearing massive daffodils on their heads or maybe it’s the iconic rugby union team that wish they were as successful as their English neighbours! Regardless, Read more
What’s the best way to cure a hangover after a heavy night on the booze?
