So I wasn't here for a while wasn't I? Thank god for once. Had a mini break after Eid around London and I have come to the conclusion that it's not bad looking after all. Being a Londoner, I don't go touring around these places often nor do I take the time to appreciate the beauty around hence this was good for a change, hanging around the city like a tourist with family over from Leicester for my nephews 5th birthday.

Oh and I also had a ride in the oh so popular 'Emirate Airline' cable car which was quite fun, although my fear of heights did kick in for a few seconds and the swaying cable car didn't help at all. Highly recommended though if you haven't tried it out yet. It gives the most stunning view of London!

Also, tried afternoon tea and dessert at the London Eye Barracuda, their vintage inspired restaurant cruiser right next to the London Eye. We just ordered something to be able to enjoy the ambiance for a bit but surprisingly enough the staff and the food wasn't bad or atrociously priced either. Definitely head over if you're around.

Need to discover London more. Any must-have places to visit peeps?

Gorgeous pics Shifs. Though I'm not afraid of heights, I cable cars still make me paranoid, and could give me a heart attack!
