The day before I left, we walked around London for a final day of sightseeing. We checked out the London Eye. I had initially wanted to go up on it, but that day was cloudy and cold, and I didn't want to waste my last day of sightseeing waiting in line to get up on the wheel... so we just saw it from far.
Big Ben...We got to hear the Big Ben bells ring!.
Westminster Abbey...very impressive
The Parliament Houses...So huge! The buildings are beautiful, and the architecture is so intricate.
That night, we went out for a lovely dinner at a Spanish restaurant in Clapham (south-east London). The food was good, the wine was good, and the company was great. A perfect ending to my week-long trip.
The next morning I had to wake up early to finish packing and get ready for my flight. I was at the airport 3 hours before my flight and we managed to take off 6 long hours later.
*Sigh*...I wish I could still be on holiday...that London trip already seems like ages ago!
