London part 3

I did promise some more London pics, so here they are...I've been lazy about posting them, I admit...It's been 3 weeks since I'm back! But I don't feel so bad...Moryarti has yet to post his New York pics...C'mon Mory, we're still waiting :)

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!

Lovely entries! I'm so glad you had such a good time. And the nice thing about London is that there's more to discover every time you manage to revisit. I'm hoping to do a theatre field trip next Easter, and take the kids to see shows, visit backstage, do workshops, and eat lunch among living statues and buskers. Fingers and toes crossed!

Try not to work too hard. Nihil illegitemis carborundum! ;)

GREAT SHOTS.. I downloaded my NY photos but i need to reduce their size a bit as they are large for Blogger to handle :)

Very cool shots.

It's not until you stand below the London Eye that you get to realise how truly massive it is. Yet, at 135m, it hardly compares to the 321m of the Burj Al Arab!

What an eye catching eye. Yeah the weather does not look THAT inviting then, maybe next time :)

When is your next vacation?

Mar, don't know when the next vacation will be...unfortunately....Although I feel I need one RIGHT NOW!!!

Probably a few days off around Christmas...maybe a few days off before that...we'll see...but no travel plans yet.
