Day 1 London; The London Eye

We arrived via train into London from Brussels. Caught a taxi to our hotel, near the corner of Hyde Park.

Firstly, I must say, the London taxi is very classy looking, roomy (we all fit into one cab) and rather fun. Pricey, yes, but if you ever have a chance, go for a ride. You’ll be glad you did.

Once settled, we set to the streets to figure out the Tube/underground transport. Eevntually, we found ourselves at the London Eye, an attraction the kids were advised by friends at school not to miss.
The London Eye is a huge Ferris wheel offering views over London for miles. It’s not your ordinary Ferris wheel either, as there are capsules on the outside of the wheel which you ride inside. Each capsule can fit a fairly large group, (say 15 -20 people comfortably).
The construction guarantees that your view is never obstructed by the wheel. Though we were still trying to get our bearings, it was a great way to settle into the city.
