Having a different view of London

When flying into the United Kingdom the thought that being in a country with so much history, sort of strikes you as you see the land beneath you.  But if you happen to fly over London, there are a few monuments that you can spot off the bat, such as Big Ben,  Buckingham Palace, and of course the London Eye! When seeing a few of the monuments with your own eyes, you anticipate getting up close to it and wanting to be able to say, "I was there!"  
The London Eye is a circular shape that has big clear capsules on it which then could hold approximately up to 25 people.  It takes about 30-40 minutes to make it completely around and with the pace of the ferris wheel, you are able to take amazing shots of the beautiful city of London.  

There are multiple ways of exploring London and seeing what the city offers.  You could use their transportation system which will bring you to different parts of London, walk like most of the locals learning the short cuts from one street to another, and getting a birds eye view of what may possibly be the most beautiful thing you have ever seen. 

Once reaching the top of the London Eye, the capability to see all the other monuments in London was phenomenal.  Inside of each capsule there were four ipads in each corner that had a map of London and you were able to figure out what monument you were staring at and just fidget around with the ipad. 

On the ground of London, you can only capture so much in your camera, but when you are on the London Eye, you are able to capture more of what you want and also have a breath taking view of the city behind you.
