Because We Are on Top of the World!

Today was an exciting day full of fun adventures and touring! We started the day off with a tour of the London Tower, which is actually a castle and not just a tower. We got to see the Crown Jewels, which we absolutely stunning and we all wished they were ours. Personally the best part of the tour was just being able to see all of the different things and think "wow people actually used this hundreds of years ago." We even got to see a London guard there! 
Afterwards we went on River Boat cruise on the River Thames. It was nice to be able to relax and learn about the river and it's surroundings at the same time. On this cruise we passed under the London Bridge (thankfully it was not falling down).
Up next came a sight seeing tour where a local guide led us around different sites. We got to see lots of neat things like Buckingham palace and Westminster Abbey. I really enjoyed sitting on the steps where the lady fed the pigeons in Mary Poppins and enjoy coffee and people watch.
We then headed to dinner where we are Asian food (weird right?) and then went to go ride the iconic London Eye. At first it was a bit scary because of my fear of heights. I soon got over it because the views of the city were amazing!!( see picture at the top). We felt like we were at the top of the world! We then ended the day with a bit of shopping, and headed back to the hotel. Overall it was a great day and I can't wait to go see Pax Lodge tomorrow!

  2. Remember the vast extent of the British Empire, stretching around the globe. No wonder there is lots of Asian food (Indian particularly!) in London. Looks like you are having a BLAST. Wish I were there!
