with my little eyes the London Eye, Big Ben & the rest of lovely London.
We had a pretty perfect ending to our perfect day in London. After walking all over London in the cold & English mist, we didn’t have very high hopes for the view from the London Eye on such a cloudy day. But have no fear–the sky cleared up right as we hopped on. Friends of mine had recommended getting on right before sunset so that we could watch the sunset over London while we were 400 feet above the ground on our thirty minute, 360° adventure. This is by far the best time to experience the London Eye and is definitely worthy every penny. The changing sky reflects different colors onto the buildings as you go around the big wheel. It is the very best way to see London.
I have picture overload so here are just a few of my favorites.
Right after we hopped off the city lit up. I couldn’t put my camera down.
After a very long, London-filled perfect day we couldn’t help but indulge our Americanness a bit. Pizza Hut, you’ve never tasted so good.
The perfect way to end the day: sharing a chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream sundae with your best friend while being reunited in London.
Stay tuned for our second day of London fun including the Tower of London, the Tower Bridge, Westminster Abbey, and Twinings–all beautifully accompanied by the British mist.
