Getting around the city by bike or bus: Biking allows me to explore the city, although catching a cold now and then due to rain is one of its main perks.

Favourite thing about Southampton: The environment surrounding the city is beautiful, quiet, and natural. It is a really suitable place for students to study and entertain.
