... spying Tower Bridge a kilometer east, and London Bridge a few hundred meters west. I get the feeling this is the first time i am actually seeing "London" as a concept. The city has shown me great loveliness and character thus far, but if i were to look up London in a dictionary, i would likely see a pictorial reproduction of what i am seeing before me right now. And then i would ask myself why i didn't just google it. Or, for that matter, why i would bother to google London in ...
... of seeing something in person is a lot different then reading from a book, and its amazing how much more detailed things are. We also had the opportunity to see the parliament building and the Big Ben, which is the meeting place for the House of Commons and the House of Lords. I also learned that it got demolished and was rebuilt in the 1840's and it is Gothic Architecture ...
... After lunch we spent time in the Victoria and Albert museum and then gave the boys chance to visit either the Science or Natural History museum. As you will no doubt have guessed, the boys also took the opportunity to return to the gift shops, although I doubt that any dinosaur-shaped chocolate will make it back to Dubai.
All in all, another great day and, yes, the weather has remained fine again...surely our luck will run out soon!
... of the river, we decided to go for a walk and explore the riverbank.
Didn't take us long to realise that we were right near the London Eye. After a quick debate (do we or don't we) we bought tickets and up we went.
What a view! There's 32 capsules numbered 1 to 33 (there's no number 13), each holding a couple of dozen people. It takes around 40 minutes to complete a full revolution and it gives you completely uninterrupted 360 degree views across London.
... off sharing some laughs and excitement for the trip ahead. Once boarded on the ferry again we find a comfortable couch and sit together for the one and a half hour ferry ride to France. Again we share some great stories and laughs getting to know each other. I already know these are the people I want to hang out with. Adam and Jenna just arrived to do the tour after spending the last few months in Canada and the US after leaving their Accounting ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Gresham Hotel London
I had the unfortunate experienc of staying at hotel for week during Thanksgiving in Novenber 03. The Gresham Hotel was terrible and the staff were rude and inconsiderate and most did not speak english. The bathroom was so small you could bareley move around. There was no closet space the satellite TV is a joke it had 3 channels and two of those were the same with lousy reception. We frequently had to ask for clean towels. The cleaning staff would turn the heat off in the room after they were done cleaning and when we would come back to the room it would be freezing and it would take a long time for the room to warm up again. The room size was tiny. Supposedly the rooms were recently remodeled. Whoever it was, should be shot. The beds were uncomfortable and the room was drafty. The hairdryer was in a desk drawer, from which it could not be moved and used in a convenient place like the bathroom.
It was a terrible experienceand I will certainly avoid this hotel. It is rated 3 to 4 stars and should have been no more than 2 stars. The hotel is well located but quite dirty. Bathroom is like a box in which you can hardly move. Do not take much luggage: you can not hang your clothes!! Cleaning staff inadequate - we stayed there in December and found a newspaper dd October 16 under the bed!! - and most staff does not speak english. Drinks at the bar are out-of-proportion expensive.
Publicity pictures are impressive but REALITY IS NOT!!
