With the cloudless chilly night sky, the Big Ben lit up with the red double deckers giving it the classic London look.

Tour of Windsor Castle, Bath and Stonehenge

“12 means 12” the tour guide said. “But we were only few minutes late.” “12 means 12” he said again. He was trying to tell us why the tour bus left us stranded in Windsor, not once, but twice! Quite a tour!

Tour of the London Eye

London is a lot of things. People, food, red telephone booths, tubes, Big Ben etc. Standing amongst the old, London Eye is the newest iconic structure that defines London! Going up in the London Eye Capsule, we felt we were at the top of the world! Sight to behold.

Strolling along the Thames…

I was super excited/sparkling with excitement to see one of London’s oldest and most popular landmarks, the Tower Bridge!

Sunset behind Big Ben…

It was a chilly and cloudy day. Rain had sprinkled all afternoon. Rain was no where to be seen as the sun was setting behind the Big Ben…

Sunset at London Eye…

Throngs of people were walking about on the bridge talking in languages I couldn’t recognize. Behind us was the River Thames upon which was standing 135 meters tall one of a kind Ferris Wheel.
