You don’t know how much joy you brought to me.ūüôā¬†Again guys from the deepest emotion of my heart‚ô•¬†I am gratefully THANKFUL for all your EFFORT’s by STOPPING¬†here in my page, and most of all leaving the marked through your LIKES and COMMENTS.¬†APPRECIATED¬†it very much, and in returns with that I’ll assure you that I’ll do the same thing on yours too. ‚ô•‚ô•‚ô•:)

The following photos are my wonders through the London Eye. At first when I heard the London Eye I have no idea about it,  I fondled thinking about at least a clue for me but instead of asking through that conversation with a friends, I run through to my brilliant friend Mr.Google and I think I recovered good-by then lol.:)

DSC_3625The London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel situated on the banks of the River Thames in London. The entire structure is 135 metres tall and the wheel has a diameter of 120 metres. It is the tallest ferris wheel in Europe, and it was opened to the public since March of 2000 since then it become the most focal point attraction in England.

:)We we’re on the line of the Fast Track that can give us the priority boarding but the price is double to the normal line or more I think! But the officer in charge is very kind and nice who told us to be in the normal line as it won’t be needed to be in the Fast Track by then because it’s winter, and not much people waiting in the line. She send us to the normal line and we end-up paying 16¬£ for my husband and I. There we saved more than what we expected, plus the waiting took us only ¬†few minutes, so that’s not bad at all.:)

And this is the London Eye

And this is the one Eye that can carry about 20-25 people.:)

After people get's off the Eye  the officer's checked right away to make sure there's no hidden problems left behind!

We're only 8 people inside the one Eye I think!

We’re only 8 people inside the one Eye as what I can recalled!

The next night I dragged my husband for a walk to enjoy the night scene around so I can have my  night scene photography around the area, and Big Ben is part of my list.

Night Scene of the Big Ben. Good job to my husband for taking this photo post like this of mine.:)

We stayed at Crown Plaza hotel at St.James street about 180¬£ a night for this type of season and more during the weekends. Clean building, a few steps walk to the Taxi stand, about 5 minutes walk to the Metro station of St.James, surrounded by many varieties of ¬†Cafes,¬†And pretty much a walking distance to the¬†major area’s¬†attractions of London. Like the Buckingham Palace, the St.Abbey’s Anglican Church,¬†The Big Ben,¬†Hop-on,¬†Hop-off for the¬†ferry-boat cruises, and more interesting sightseeing attractions around the area! The Victoria Station is about 10 minutes walk from Crown Plaza so if you’re coming from the Airport of Gatwick and going to London, the best thing you’ll do is to ride a train from Gatwick to Victoria’s Station 20¬£ each a ticket then exit to Victoria station where most hotel’s are, and the attractions most of all.¬†

NOTE: The only one I don’t like in Crown Plaza Hotel at St.James London was their Internet which is not FREE at all. 24hrs is charge to 9-10¬£, which is for me it should be free like most of the Hotels I stayed at. Yeah they told us the free Wi-Fi spots is in the Lobby, and using the Wi-Fi inside our room is 9-10¬£. I did not see the sense in there though,¬† but I end-up paying it rather than for me to go to the Lobby when all I just want to feel is to lay on the bed surfing while waiting to snore.¬†

So guys if ever you would like to visit London please don’t hesitate to ask any information from me as I am willing to give you the answer as much as I can.:)¬†

Have a wonderful Lovely trip y’all,

A visit to the Buckingham Palace London


When people heard about England, I think the first one comes-up was the Queen, the Palace, the London Bridge, the Royal Guards, and the words “God save the Queen”! I was in London a week ago, and one of our list to see about London is to watch the changing of the guards at the Buckingham palace, and of course hopping to see the Queen as well.:) So guys the following photos are my adventures during my Buckingham palace last week, have fun.:)

Buckingham Palace London.

Buckingham Palace is the official London residence and principal workplace of the British Monarch which is located in the city of Westminster.

The Victoria Memorial :)

The Victoria Memorial is facing in front of the Buckingham Palace gate ūüôā

The weather is cold, I think this time was about -7C temperature, the Sky has no colors at all but a grayish foggy day.:)

The only one I can complained during the changing of the guards is the guards march is kind of short, because of course it’s winter, and I understand that! But I just hope that the guards do their march positions in front of the gate like they’re doing during the summer, and not inside the front yard of the palace as you can notice in this photo, the positioned march is inside the yard.¬†

The marching inside the front yard of the palace! ¬†And I can’t see it at all, because of people are packed next to the gate. In this photo I raised my Tripod up using the multiple shots of my camera.:)

20121020-024719.jpg A crowded city in DC.

20121020-024954.jpg The crowded city of Paris France. I’ve visited Paris twice already early 2007 and late rainy summer of year 2009.

20121020-025204.jpg At the Louvre Museum Paris were people are all over the city of Paris is more crowded as thousands of tourist everyday.

20121020-025349.jpg here’s the night view from the hotel were I stayed at during my early 2010 vacation to my homeland the Philippines at Makati Manila.

20121020-025530.jpg and here’s the overlooking city while I’m enjoying my breakfast at my favorite hotel in my hometown, where I grew up the city of Cagayan De Oro City Philippines.

Those are the only photos I can showed about cities as I’m away from my own collectibles photos right now guys. I’m currently here in Central Coast California enjoying the relaxing magnificent scenery of this gorgeous State of California. I admit this State is such a dolly, the wild animals, the mammals, the ocean, the mouth watering food, unlimited drinks, good coffee as my husband said, and the big plus such a friendly people.:)
So far things are good, it maybe there are bumps and humps during this trip back to my hometown:(, “family issues” but hey, we have tons to look forward, so no reason to stop longing, and experience the best as we can.:) I just pray for the best of us.:)

P.S when I say unlimited drink! It is about my favorite water. They keep pouring and pouring my glass without me asking that I need more water with NO charge. The coffee where my husband’s best buddy? ohh yeah his loving it which he called the real coffee, and when it comes to Soda or to a yummy Lemonade? Ohhh baby yes unlimited too! I just can’t found those to the Country where we live and that’s in Europe because every pour is another charge, or shall I say another list of $$$ on your bill.

Have a blissful week y’all God Bliss,
Yen-Yen
