    Have a flight over the river Thames with the wife + me

    Ok sit back and enjoy the ride ,, this is The Emirates cable car ride over the Thames ,, we went from the Greenwich side over then got on the DLR and dissapeared into the city .

    Please excuse my laughter , what you cant see is my poor little wife trying to smile and be brave as she is terrified of the height it goes up and because she talks quietly she is saying " oh dear oh dear " bless her she had tears running down my cheeks when we got to the other side ,,,,, bless her .


    I'm proud of my 38" waist , also proud I have never done drugs

    Looks really good Nigel.

    I read about it earlier in the year.

    Good fun by the look of it.

    Green for you if it lets me.

    Living in Switzerland I partake of ski lifts every winter.

    But that one is number one on my list for my next visit to London.

    Look, even Mathos came out of Beautiful Lancashire to comment!!!

    Aberlour could do it on a zip cord with blacked out faces.

    Wow thats reasonable. I still can't believe I'd never heard it had been built. My son is going to love it but the misses will be just like yours, which will be amusing.

    I wonder how she'd get on in Langkawi, 700 metres above the sea, without the cheesy tunes and the sound of the wind rockin the car

    Yes....if you're gonna have music let it be cheesy and not in your face.

    How many interesting youtube offerings are buggered by some adolescent heavy metal noise .

    Nice video Nigel. Never knew it existed.
