We conquered new heights yesterday! Early yesterday morning, we embarked on a double-decker bus towards the British Airways London Eye. All 15 members of our group took a flight in our own private pod; three of us not liking heights much. Proudly, the three of us made it through the 30 minute trip without getting neither sick nor crying like a baby.
Afterwards, it was onto Platform 9 ¾ from the Harry Potter
Films. It was amazing to stand in Kings Cross and know the history of it in the
filming of movies; given that I am a huge fan and all. We were able to get some
great pictures from Kings Cross and other areas before heading out to The
Sherlock Holmes Restaurant where we indulged in London Fish and Chips.
Our stomachs were full of the local eats when we headed out to a River Thames tour from Embankment.
The group split up and since Greg and I did not want to see

our own. It was at a local restaurant that we had our next English meal of Beef
Pie and Chips and then decided to head back to the hotel for an early night’s
The day’s most interesting find was that restaurants in
Today’s adventures includes checking out from our hotel early, heading to the Star Wars convention (which we were lucky enough to be here at the same time), over to Harrods for a bit of shopping, then heading out in the early evening for our overnight sleeper train ride from London to Scotland.
