The Tower of London

On this windy morning the first highlight was the wonderful Tower of London, which is definitely an architectural pearl. This gorgeous building represents some typical details that belong to the Gothic style of architecture as high towers, small windows and pretty ornaments.

Besides we liked the eye-catching crown jewellery that we’re able to look at for a tiny moment because you’re not allowed to stay too long in front of the showcase - just enough time to catch a glimpse (anyway, better than nothing). 


Then our sightseeing tour brought us to the imposing Big Ben and the famous Westminster Abby. Furthermore we walked around Piccadilly Circus and got an idea of the daily hustle and bustle that was more than just a small tumult.


Do I have to mention that the dinner had been extremely rich and typical British once more? The treat I liked the best was the dessert in form of an ice-cream, which was much sweeter than I’m used to, but at least my sweet tooth was pleased.
