On our third day in Paris, we woke up to a beautiful sunrise from our hotel room. It was the perfect way to say “au revoir” to Paris. We then headed to the train station to take the Eurostar to London. The Chunnel from Paris to London was fascinating, considering you are underwater for twenty miles. It is also the world’s longest underground tunnel! When we arrived at our hotel, the Langham, we found that it was something out of a winter fairytale. The historic hotel was filled with sparkling Christmas decorations and included a hot chocolate station in the reception area. We dropped our bags at the hotel and immediately made our way to the London Eye. Serendipitously, we had a pod all to ourselves. The clear day meant we could see the city from an unobstructed view. But a warning to those wanting to visit the Eye – not the best idea for those afraid of heights!
