I have a thing for gondolas and ferries wheels, even the most unnecessary ones. So, when there’s an actually exceptionally good one, I must try it. London Eye, one of the world’s largest ferris wheels definitely qualifies, but thing is – it costs a fortune, and so in my backpacking years I just couldn’t bring myself to spend what the ticket cost. In a recent visit to London, a dear soul – possibly knowing me better than I know myself – solved the dilemma for me and nudged me to go for a ride (the fast lane! yay!), and so I could finally tick that off the list. It was the typical cloudy grey London weather, which for me was perfect.
If you’re in the area and recently made a fortune, you can spend it on a ticket to see London from above from the London eye… 🙂
