Hi from Plymouth, Devon!

Hey! So I’m super new to urban exploring, always been really interested in it and was a member of this group a long time a go but recently went on holiday to Spain and stumbled across an abandoned golf resort club and I just had to go in and now I’ve caught the bug for it!! So I was wondering if anyone could please give me some tips and pointer on how to actually find places to explore? I’m not asking for any locations etc just some advice to get me started. Thanks!!
