The London Eye




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.

I was in London at age 14. I was stuck in the underground for 3 hours. Not because the train did anything wrong, but because my friend and I got lost and drove all over the city. LOL

Wow, I hadn't heard all those things about it breaking down and being stuck up there. Glad I didn't know that! The girls went on it way back when they were in 6th & 8th grade on a school trip, but I passed. That was when it was brand new. We did a cocktail party in one of the cars (actually it was 3 cars for our whole group) when we were in London last May. Pretty cool, I must say, and we knew everybody in the car, it wasn't like we were stuck there with a bunch of "tourists", god forbid ;-}
