Paris Part 2

August 14, 2014

Hello Freckles Eiffel Tower Paris France
On Tuesday we headed to the main attraction anyone thinks of when you think "Paris". Of course it's the Eiffel Tower. I'm not the best with heights and I knew it was pretty high. I could tell it was gonna be a lot higher than the Arc De Triomphe but it's one of those things you just have to do!

I think we queued for just over an hour and got tickets to go to the summit with the lift. There's no way I was gonna go all the way to the Eiffel Tower and only go to the first floor. Although, once we started getting higher I did wonder if that may have been a better option...

I'm kidding! I'm really glad I pushed myself to do it and the view from the top was incredible - even if I did find I was a bit wary of getting to close to the edge!

Hello Freckles Paris View from Eiffel Tower
I can imagine it's a fantastic place to visit at night to see the city all lit up and I think if I was to go back (read: Andrew, please can we go back again) I'd like to see that, especially in the Winter. Imagine snowy Paris! Ahhh!

  5. I want to go back to Paris. I went when I was 12 years old and never got to explore it properly. The only places I have been are Disneyland and the Tower.
