Glass Balconies

To somebody who unexpectedly found the London Eye a scary experience this is a bizarre concept that I will avoid like the plague.

Yup. Best avoided.

If you thought the London Eye was bad (and it was), try the open day at Lloyd's of London where the lift is a flimsy little glass pod that whizzes up outside the building. Or try going up Monument and looking down the middle of the spiral staircase when you're near the top.

It chills my blood just thinking about it!

The Columbus Tower in Barcelona is grim too. A few hundred feet up a Nelson's Column type thing with a three man lift up the middle, you get out into what a seems like an oversized barrel, top half with glass windows, built by Spaniards!!
