London has had its own Giant Ferris Wheel for ten years, stealing the show from Vienna with a height of 135 metres compared to the Viennese landmark of a mere 60 metres of height. But the Giant Ferris Wheel in Vienna's Prater amusement park is faster, one round-trip taking 10-12 minutes depending on the visitors that want to get on it at the bottom. The London Eye won't stop but takes on visitors at full speed - and still it takes 30 minutes for one round-trip. You won't get bored anyway as on clear days the view takes in 40 kilometres. That means you can wave all the way from the glass capsules to Windsor Castle. In the mood for a stylish party? The London Eye can be rented for birthdays, weddings or Halloween, and if you feel like cuddling up you can also rent yourself a private capsule along with champagne and caviar. What the Vienna Giant Ferris Wheel and the London Eye have in common: they were both designed by Britons. The occasion in London was obvious: The Giant Ferris Wheel, after all, symbolises the wheel of time and the movement into a new millennium, whereas in Vienna it was only the Emperor who celebrated an anniversary.
Standing in the centre of London doesn't mean you've connected with your own centre. The only remedy against the ongoing traffic noise and the never-ending hunts for fashion labels is fuelling your energy flow with water. Day Spa Hydrohealing has the right elixir against the hustle and bustle outside, cradling the inner peace in bottles. Once you leave this place, you will feel deeply relaxed even in the longest tourist queue. And that's how it works: enter, close the door, leave the noise behind, and relax. And you need to be truly relaxed to face the acupuncture and colon irrigation treatments waiting for you. First, they prick you with needles, and then they put a hose into somewhere else?but all in a very exclusive atmosphere, of course. To round off this tortures, your skin is put into a glass to create a vacuum, the process being called cupping therapy. But if you have survived all this, you can relax during foot and face massages - to the benefit of the immune system. If you don't belong to the brave ones, you can still have yourself wrapped in foil to improve your body shape line or minimise cellulites with diverse anti-something treatments. While the bikini waxing is painful again, it adds the final touch though before you are sent back onto the street again: deeply relaxed and one with yourself.
