Seeing the World Through London's Eye

            The London Eye, or Millennium Wheel, in itself is a spectacular monument brought recently to London in 1999 and is the tallest Ferris wheel in Europe. Waiting in line to board the bubble-looking carrier, one’s first thought on a hot day may be whether or not that bubble has air conditioning or not because there are multiple families also put into that same bubble. Walking into the carrier, one is greeted by an amazing, crisp feeling of the air that is being blown throughout, which is a great surprise. As the journey begins, one may be a bit skeptical as the height of the London eye begins to become more realistic, but the movement is so smooth that it is not even noticeable. While moving up higher on this huge wheel the remarkable images of London that one visiting London cannot see from anywhere else throughout the city are literally breathtaking. The now-panoramic city has enlightened by the sunlight and one has a view of London so far that the buildings become unrecognizable, the colors begin to blend, and the earth begins to round. The numerous sights including Big Ben, Parliament, St. Paul’s, Westminster Abbey, and the Palace of Westminster are seen everyday by tourists, but not from this outlook. This is truly a stunning and one-of-a-kind way to see the stunning sights and overall view of what is one of the most beautiful cities in the world- London.
