Flying above the Thames River in London seems like an expensive experience, right? For only a small fee on the regular public transit card (an Oyster card), you and your group travel squad can take a gondola ride from one side of the river to the other. Called the Emirates Air Line, this snazzy way to travel brings passengers from the North Greenwich area to the Royal Docks. Both areas are full of historic landmarks, shopping and great eats. I went on a clear, but overcast morning and could see all the way to Central London. Other days when the sun is setting and the fog sets in can offer spectacular views too. It’s days like this I love being a travel blog writer -- my commute is always different!
Have a great weekend wanderers!
