London, a capital of Great Britain, is a place full of magical, details and excitement! I just love it!

London Eye

The London Eye is one of the largest observation wheels in the world. It stands 135 metres (443 feet) high on the western end of Jubilee Gardens, on the South Bank of the River Thames in Lambeth, London, England, north of Westminster Bridge. It is a must visit place in London!

That day the weather was fine! Sunny and windy.
We (I and my mom and dad) took the "flight" in the morning and the ride took nearly half an hour. Inside the capsule, the experience was like magical and full of excitement! I looked at The Houses of Parliament, London Bridge and the Big Ben from the wheel and I felt like I was standing in the middle of the air. ;)

After the ride, I visited the Dali Art Gallery by myself!! My dad and mom showed no interesting on viewing art, so they chose to wander around the area and I chose to go inside the gallery. I've spent almost two hours inside the gallery and still did not want to leave. Dali's art work are awesome!!! His outstanding tallent inspires me positively. I was attracted to Salvador Dali's artwork, especially the sculptures and the paintings about time!

Stonehenge and the Roman Bath

On the following day we joined a tour to visit Stonehenge and the Roman Bath. Stonehenge is my favorite. The main reason we chose London as our travel destination was because we wanted to visit the mysterious place - Stonehenge.

This photo was taken along the road to the Stonehenge. Beautiful green land and nature.

One thing that was disappointed. We couldn't touch the stone anymore! :( I wish I could touch it and try to sense its energy through the touching of my hand :D

Since when did the Stonehenge not allowed people to get close? If I could jumped in the circle area, that would be great and fantastic... Also, if I could viewed the site from the helicopter THAT would be so much fun and the experience would be unforgettable! :)

After that, the tour took us to the Great Roman Bath. This site was totally beyond my expectation! It is a place full of ancient atmosphere, magic, love and history! I just loved it! It is the best preserved Roman religious spa from the ancient world!
