The emblem of the city of London, River Thames, which embraces the city tightly through the centuries, is known as the River of central London. It is worth a ride on the banks just to admire the view. See how it paints the city of London, giving it a unique look. Previously, Thames had a very important commercial significance for the city, one that transported most of the goods to London. The picture today has changed a lot, and once there were large warehouses and docks, nowadays one can see stunning restaurants and bars. Do not miss the chance to get to know it nearby. Thames is an English gentleman who will surely never forget!
A few weeks ago, I was in London for a while. Very often, when I am there and have some time available, I visit for the first time some areas of the city, in order to get to know better London and its history. On one of these walks, I ended up in a beautiful and quiet area near London Bridge. I was remarkably impressed by the imposing statue of a horse. Approaching I read:
'Jacob,' The Circle Dray Horse
'The famous Courage dray horses were built on this site from early 19th century and delivered beer around London from the brewery in Horselydown Lane by Tower Bridge.
'In the 16th century, the area became known as Horselydown, which derives from' Horse-lie-down ', and a description of working horses resting before crossing the London Bridge into the City of London.
'Jacob was commissioned by Jacob's Island Company and Farlane properties as the centerpiece of The Circle to commemorate the history of the site. He was flown over London by helicopter into Queen Elizabeth Street to launch The Circle in October 1987. '
So there is another "icon" and moment of London and its inhabitants that I did not know!

This magnificent gallery is right next to Grand Place! It is one of the first galleries in Europe. I was impressed by its glass dome! In the gallery you will find some of the most beautiful shops in Brussels with chocolates, watches, etc. The truth is that the prices are a little expensive, but the view of the gallery will reward you!
You will find it in Grand Place, out of the “L'Étoile” building. The statue was erected in honor of Everard 't Serclaes, who died in the 14th century defending Brussels. The legend says that if someone touches the bronze arm of the statue, he will have a good luck in his life!

A few weeks ago, I traveled in the charming city of London, for business. Although I had a lot of business meetings, I found the opportunity to take a moment off and take a walk in the city! The days were sunny, unlike most of the times I've traveled to London. The sun was very pleasant and gave its own color to the city! So I enjoyed the blue sky and the sunny day, while I walked in the neighborhoods of the city, staring at the beautiful buildings!
London is a big city and people move fast in the streets. A lot of people are moving around and most of the shops are full.
On the other hand, it is a city full of tourists, who give their own color to London and its sights! If you have not been to London so far, you are really losing a great experience! The city is unique! So, plan a visit immediately and enjoy it!
A few weeks ago I visited London. During my visit there, I needed a company that would provide transfer services in the city, but also from - to the airport.
I booked online all my transfers with Carrot Cars and I was absolutely satisfied from the quality of their services.
Their cars were all new, very clean and tidy, and they arrived always on time. The drivers were gentle and willing to serve us, and all these in a very good price.
