When looking for possible countries to complete my master’s thesis, I found myself drawn to this beautiful island. Ireland had extraordinarily gorgeous landscapes and music that I simply needed to visit. And, of course, I would finish my studies along the way. I loved the local and research community here so much that staying here was my only option! My love of the ocean has kept me close to the coasts of the world and what better place live than by the Wild Atlantic Way? Nothing tops having a bit of craic with my mates on the salty shores.
