Day 11: London Eye

Monday, July 6, 2015
Hello again! Monday night ended by riding the London Eye. It’s touristy, yes, but DEFINITELY GO DO IT.

As students we could elect to go on the London Eye by paying £18 for a ticket. The Library Information Science members went with the Theater class members on this lovely sunset adventure.

It’s a time of waiting in line… and taking pictures.

Finally the time to run into the pod comes… and I mean literally run on. The pod doesn’t stop moving. It’s slow, but it wouldn’t be the right time to trip over your shoelaces, if you know what I mean.

The Eye is huge. REALLY tall and you get a great view of London from the top. We had several members who were afraid of heights, but did all right for the most part. They did it and so can you!

The group had a great time! The ride took probably 30 minutes since it moves slowly and is so tall. Like I said before, I had a lot of time to take photos. You aren’t even seeing half of them!

Picture taking and playing “I Spy” are great ways to pass the time.

I highly suggest this, even if it is a tourist activity. You just have to see the whole city spread out around you! It really made me appreciate the Underground and bus systems…

On to Day 12!
