Eresi and her hubby set-off from Houston, Texas, made a brief stop in Detroit, Michigan, and then to New York; from where they boarded a first-class cabin en-route London, UK. On getting to London, they checked into the opulent ‘The Ritz hotel’, and commenced on a whirlwind tour of the city.

They visited the London Tower Bridge, The Shard, and capped the day off by seeing a live game between then-Premier League champions Chelsea and Manchester City, at Stamford Bridge.

The two lovebirds journeyed through various landmarks of London on their second day – the famous Oxford Street, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, St. Paul’s cathedral, Millennium Park, a boat ride on the River Thames, and a host of other attractions too numerous to mention.

From London, Eresi and Chukwuma continued on to continental Europe. They crossed the English Channel by ferry. The ninety minute ride was both relaxing and enchanting, as the ferry Enchanted Lady was aptly named. The Enchanted Lady docked in Calais, France and the couple was treated to their first view of continental Europe. Stunning views of rolling hills and enchanted vistas along the boulevards and promenades, and the waters of the Atlantic Ocean gently lapping on the embankment, as they awaited the arrival of their tour vehicle.
