London, UK – Approaching Tower Bridge

Time for a Travel Lane memory (boy, I haven’t done one of these in a while!!!)… Tonight, I am returning to London!!! Rewind to year 2006, I have just purchased my new Samsung Digital camera the weekend before – so let’s call this trip its maiden voyage!!! 😉

Me and my ex-boyfriend had a weekend trip to London when we were working in Brighton… Of course, not having a clue yet how the camera worked, I took this shot… way to slow shutter speed – but in the end – I love this shot!!! It is one of my favourites – It reminds me of a faraway memory!!!

London, UK – London Eye

Again I have to apologise for my lack of posts!!! 😦 I’ve been keeping busy (& tried to scale down on the time I spend on my computer!!! – a conscious effort!!! 😉 ) … Have been doing a few DIY’s around the house – which I will share with you soon!!! 😀 I’ve discovered Pinterest – which I am officially addicted to!!! 😀 But it has inspired me to get up & get going!!! Still lots more to do though… only the tippy-tip of the iceberg!!! – – – We have cancelled our satellite tv, exactly for this reason!!! Once I have found my new balance I will hopefully post often again!!! 🙂

But for today (late this week)… my Travel Lane memory!!! 🙂 Again one of those that I’ve seen a few times, but have not actually been on (next time for sure!!!)… The London Eye!!! This place such a big part in the touristy aspect of London, that I cannot believe that I’ve not been up there even once in the 3 times I’ve visited London!!! 😦 Love this structure though… I love the happy memories and gooey feelings these images brings forth when I see it!!! 😀 **

London, UK – Big Ben

Big Ben 2004

I know… You’ve seen this a million times…. all the photos look the same… from this angle  everyone has seen it…!!! 😦 But it still is a special Travel Memory for me… & will always be one of my favourite attractions of London!!! 😀 It certainly is “engineery” enough to keep my attention!!! 😀

Cindy from ‘Photos from the Loony Bin’ did a post a while back with some VERY interesting facts on Big Ben (also known as the Clock Tower, but whos real name is St. Stephen’s Tower!!! – – – I know, what??? – – – Head on over to Cindy’s post for more info!!!) 🙂 **

I Love you Big Ben!!! 😉 **

Westminster Abbey – London, UK

Travel Lane memory for the week!! Westminster Abbey!! … I have a huge regret that I have not been inside yet (& I have been in London 3 times!! 😦 ) – – – I know, shame on me!!! (Queue the ‘but’….) 😉 But, every time we were there, there were soooooo many people (or closed?)… we planned to go back (promise), but somehow, once we were gone, we realized that we never did!!

So this is for the next time I am in the vicinity – – – I WILL go in no matter how long the queue!!! 😀 **
