As life is quite short, I took the decision of visiting as much of the world as I could possibly could. I started with Plymouth, in Devon, as it was the town where my parents met. I added neighboring towns to the visit list, including Wembury, Brixton, Saltash and Ivybridge. The Internet revealed a lot of great hotels for me to stay at, including Copthorne Hotel (Armada Way) and Travelodge Hotel (30 Derrys Cross). My father recommended the latter and I followed his advice. He also arranged for one of those executive cars to take me around town. I was glad, as I had never used a taxi cab before.

One of the major attractions in Plymouth is the National Marine Aquarium. I am an absolute fan of aquatic life, so this is the first thing I did while in Plymouth. It was great and I took a lot of photographs, which I will treasure for many years to come. I also visited the City Museum & Art Gallery, as I read it had an impressive collection of art. It was amazing and I ended up spending a good few hours in the museum. I returned to my hotel with one of those minibuses, as there was an entire group traveling back to the same hotel.

Between Plymouth and Gatwick airport, I traveled with an airport taxi. The 225 miles journey was covered in 3 hours and 57 minutes and I paid around £393 for a saloon car. I noticed that a wheelchair accessible taxi was provided for a person staying at the same hotel as myself; she was traveling from Plymouth to Exeter. Her 48 miles journey was to last 54 minutes and she paid around £86. I took on the break from traveling at Premier Inn (Worting Road, Basingstoke) and at Jurys Inn (Western Way, Exeter). I ate some fine meals at The Crown (The Street, Basingstoke) and at Harrys Grill Bar (6 Northernhay Place, Exeter).
