The Shard

Standard

I had the opportunity to go to the Shard, the highest viewing platform at the top of Western Europe’s tallest building.

We went up with a speedy elevator to level 33 , changed elevators to level 69.

There is the first viewing platform.  Then you can go 3 flights up to level 72 which is the highest level for visitors.

The sight is breathtaking and you see all London Landmarks and more.

Definitely not for people who don’t like heights.

 

 

Well worth a visit if you are in London.

It was not sunny but we still could see enough.

 As Groucho Marx says:

In the Tower of London

Standard

Time flies and it is already weekend again… hurray!

We went to the Tower of London the other night to see the Ceremony of the keys which is being performed since 700 years every single day and it is open to the public to witness it. The waiting list is long and we waited 3 month for our turn. One is not allowed to take pictures. I did take some while waiting outside the gate to be let in!

It is so much fun to discover more and more of my wonderful London. So come with me.

 

It was very interesting and we enjoyed a pleasant and fun chat with the guide/ high ranking soldier afterwards who told us more interesting facts around the tower.

Wishing all a wonderful and relaxing weekend!

A great day out!

Standard

We had a sunny, warm day!

So London here I come!

I met friends and after a wonderful lunch by the River Thames we went to the cable car.

Yes, London has no mountains but a cable car. 

It goes over the Thames and in the sunshine we had a lovely view.

You can see the Dome, the River Thames and a lot further.

Afterwards I had tea with my friends in their back garden in the sunshine.

Friends are so valuable.

Never forget how priceless they are,

they are with you in need,

they are with you to laugh

they are always there for you.

Be thankful !

I am thanking all my friends for being there for me, always!

Have an awesome day!
