London, Manchester, and Birmingham: Places to Visit

Ever since I saw London Eye on TV a year or two back, I've always wanted to go to London. Here let me show you a picture of the Millennium Wheel (or observation wheel). This is a spectacular picture, isn't it?

And as you probably know, I'm CRAZY about The Phantom of the Opera. One of my dreams is to watch the show in a real opera house. Blur Ting has watched this show already and she highly recommended it to me. I know I can't possibly travel in the near future, but my dreams are going to stay alive until the day I die. So Phantom, just wait for me! ;-D

While browsing for other tourist attractions in UK such as Madame Tussaud's Museum, I also came across Manchester United Museum in Manchester. Just the other day Livingsword told me that he was such a big fan of soccer and it reminds me of my brother. My brother is also a big fan of Manchester United, so I bet he's going to love it if he can visit the museum. (Side note: In fact, lots of Indonesians are HUGE fans of soccer!)

Other than that, I also found something interesting in Birmingham. It has the most advanced planetarium in one of the museums called Thinktank-Birmingham Science Museum. My husband and I have always been fascinated by stars. That's why one day we'd love to buy a telescope just for fun. Anyway, here's a picture of the planetarium.

Well, in the meantime, let me just keep on saving money so that I can visit those places one day. Dreams, here I come, one step at a time!!!
