A ride on a helicopter…hello London

Sometimes I am lucky enough to do the coolest, most incredible things and earlier today I had the chance to do the most amazing thing ever: get flown around London on a helicopter. This was all thanks to Match.com, one of the UK’s best dating sites. They ran a competition on twitter where the prize was a flight for two with The London Helicopter. And there was no doubt in my head who I was going to take – Sister. The two of us thoroughly enjoyed our date earlier today. photo 4 (2)

London itself was at it’s cloudy, grey best and stretched out in front of us I couldn’t help but fall in love with my city all over again. Our pilot pointed out everything as he flew us along the river, and as he spoke it was extraordinary to see how close everything was to everything else from the sky. Both Sister and I know from experience that it’s a different story when walking. photo 5 photo 1 (2) photo 1 (3) photo 2 (1) I don’t know where I am looking, neither does Sister – probably outside the window at the stunning view.photo 2 (3) photo 2 (4) photo 3 (1) photo 3 (2) photo 3 photo 4 (1)  photo 4 photo 5 (1)I can’t thank Match.com enough for this (I will be eternally grateful that they have a twitter account and ran such a cool competition!) This is something I would never normally do. To be completely truthful I didn’t even know it was something I could do. But now I have done it and I wouldn’t change this experience for anything.

I hope whatever you all did over the weekend, you had just as much fun.
