Joanne & I enjoying the London Eye views


A very long day starting at 6:30 for breakfast at the Kelowna airport, after our initial checking. A pleasant flight to Toronto with a 5 hr layover. Relaxing dinner at Fionn McCool's then onto our 7 hr flight to London.

Arrived London Gatwick on time then took 30 min. Express train to Downtown London. Our hotel is a perfect example of a Boutique Hotel. Small rooms, narrow hallways but exceptionally clean and well managed. Within walking distance of Buckingham a Palace and Victoria Station.

After a quick breakfast we hopped on the Big Bus Tour to make notes of where we want to stop on our full day tomorrow. Managed to take in a Thames River Cruise and the 30 min. Ride on the London Eye. WOW what an amazing view of London,,,(hope you enjoy the photos). Ended the early evening with a super Italian Dinner at a great little restaurant we walked into.

Tomorrow will be a full day of sightseeing and shopping. Have a fun day and more later.
