The London Eye is an amazing way to see a birds eye view of the city. Every time we have been to London I have always steered away from doing the London Eye. First of all I'm afraid of heights, secondly I hear it breaks down a lot and you can be stuck in it for hours. Thirdly the thought if being stuck in a capsule with strangers, my weak bladder, no food is a nightmare in it self.
But it was a beautiful afternoon when we arrived in London on Friday and we thought we better take advantage of the good weather, knowing it may not last. There was very little of a line and it moved rather quickly. We were in our capsule with maybe 20 people total, better in spring than summer with the heat and euro BO. It was a clear sunny day and you could see for miles. I didn't freak out at the height, or the fact we were over water. It was so breath taking all my fears left me and I gazed at the sights instead. If you ever go to London I would definitely do The London Eye.
