The Other Side of Plymouth
May 9, 2012 § 10 Comments
Weird how we’ve never really wandered around the town after almost 2 years here, what more to realise how beautiful it turned out to be. It’s just so true that you will never appreciate someone/something’s real beauty until you discover its existance. To be honest, I’ve always regarded life here to be pretty redundant. There’s nothing much to do here, besides going to class, going to town once in a while and staying in the house complaining of the chilly days. Yesterday, we were lucky that the sun appeared when we were bringing a friend around Plymouth, so we just paid a few pounds each and hopped onto an-hour boat tour!
These are some pictures from the boat tour. (I didn’t bother bringing my camera because I thought there was nothing much to see, oh how wrong was I!) Next round, with Mum, Dad and Aunt! 😀
Plymouth is a very historical town (very much similar to Taiping with the constant rain and old citizens) with a long history since the war era. If you happen to read about this town, you would find some keywords such as port, fishing, marine, war, Sir Francis Drake, Mayflower and some other words, Our neighbouring country is France, which can be reached by a 6-hours boat tour/cruise.
I must say, this boat tour left a totally different impression about Plymouth. So pretty I could die, seriously. Peaceful and so beautiful. Pardon me for these unedited pictures. (:
Conclusion from a day of boat tour and the famous fish & chips – contented. (:
Oh, we had an overwhelming discovery too today! The national food for the UK is (very shockingly) rice and curry, more specifically tikka masala curry. Weird, no? Well that kind of explains why they have so many Indian restaurants, cheap rice bags and even Curry Nights in many restaurants. England’s national food is fish and chips though (thankfully..haha).
