Friday Daydreamin': LOVIN' all these Places!!


It's February!! The month of LOVE!!  And I want to know WHERE are the places you LOVE?  What is the best vacation spot that you LOVE? What is the perfect place you LOVE to go for solitude?  Where is the best place to get your favorite slice of pizza that you LOVE?  WHERE do you LOVE?
I'm heading back over the pond again, to another place hubby & I traveled to and LOVED!  We only spend 5 days in London, England and it wasn't enough.  We enjoyed the history, the culture, the accents, the weather (it was June), the food.....Nah not the food. 

This picture was taken form the top of the London Eye - the giant ferris wheel that takes a full hour to go around and gives you this wonderful bird's-eye view of London.  This picture was looking down over Parliament and Westminster Abbey, two incredible buildings.

I LOVED england and can't wait to go back!

Where do you LOVE?  Tell us all about it!

Beautiful picture Becca! We need to go back too - the last time we were there was before the London Eye was built =) Hope you go back soon!

Seriously. It amazes me how many places you've been. I'm starting to get very jealous. Or maybe envious. Or both.

That picture is GORGEOUS!

El Camida es no bueno? Oh no!

But I'm thinking I love that farris wheel! What happens if you have to go potty?

We spent 9 days there pre-kids and it still wasn't enough. We are flying through this fall on our way to visit friends and plan on stopping in for a few days to catch up with another set of friends and explore the city toddler style. Should be very different but just as exciting. Can't wait!

I'm jealous that you're going back to London! I've linked to a post on one of my favorite places in London: Borough market.

I need to make it a priority for us to travel. Hopefully after we get the house a little more situated. What a gorgeous picture. It looks like something out of a postcard. Oh, but ferris wheels freak me OUT. I wouldn't have been able to take the camera out. I'd have been hanging on for dear life!

Myya said...

That is postcard worthy!
I would LOOOVE to go to Europe. One day, ONE DAY I will!!!

Lisa said...

London is my absolute favourite city - I would move there without hesitation! My kids love London too - we can't wait to go back again.

Connie said...

I have a dear friend that I've never met that lives outside of London. I keep threatening to go see her sometime. I'd love to go with my daughter when she gets older.

That's a great shot! I spent a week in London last summer and had a great time. Didn't go on the farris wheel though. You didn't like the food? I loved it! Probably helped that we had locals take us around to show us local places :) Let me know if you want some suggestions!

Steve said...

Look at all those crazy people driving on the wrong side of the road! What's wrong with that country?
Great picture of the parliament and the Abbey though. Lucky you getting a non-foggy day to ride the Eye!

Vivienne @ the V Spot said...

Beautiful! I pinned and tweeted that photo. I want to go now that I am old enough to appreciate it.

Cathy Sweeney said...

Well, you certainly hit on one of my favorite places in the world -- London. I've been there several times, but have taken the ride on the London Eye. I know that I'm missing out on fantastic views, but I've been a little nervous about being closed in like that. Time to just do it, I think!

Nadine Hightower said...

I would love to take a trip through all of the United Kingdom.

Jessica said...

What a great picture! We've never taken time to do the London Eye, but it looks like we missed out on some terrific views.

Anwar said...

I've been to england so many times but never rode the london eye. Great photo! I really like london. I didnt care as much for it at first but the more i went the more I've enjoyed it. Cant wait to go back too...

Dick Jordan said...

London is a great place. I "bookended" my last two trips to Europe there, flying between Heathrow and San Francisco, then flying on to the Continent from London and working my way back there by train and car.

Sophie said...

Very cool view of Parliament and Big Ben! London is my favourite city in the world, though I've not been on the Eye yet. Getting fabulous shots like this would be worth the time. And probably the exorbitant price, too :)

MiMi said...

So cool. I want to go there so bad!

Sonja said...

I took that same picture a few years ago but it turned out cloudy because the capsule we were in was a bit dirty. Nice shot!

Emmy said...

I would love going to England- and well all of Europe. It would be nice not having the language barrier.

Rachel said...

Oh what a gorgeous picture! I'll daydream I'm joining you for that trip!
