A Serious View

Hello everyone, hoping your hump day is treating you well. Today, a little proof that I don’t just go to far off bizarre destinations most of the world don’t seem to consider like Niger and Kazakhstan. There is little doubt that the world’s most recognisable tower is the Eiffel Tower, and in a shock to all my readers, Yes I did go there once! Twice even, if you include trips with my parents when I was knee high to a grasshopper (oh… now there’s an idea for a blog post or three!)

The Eiffel Tower is not only iconic and pretty darned impressive, not only did it feature in one of the best James Bond sequences of all time, but once you get up there via a rattling lift, the view over Paris is also stunning. Can you think of a tower MORE iconic than the Eiffel Tower? It surely is on one of those ‘must-see’ lists for travellers everywhere. Heck, even my Japanese students in Iwate had heard of it! (no, seriously there were so many things they hadn’t heard of!)

Enjoy! Tomorrow, I’ll be back on the rails for a hot and dusty journey in North Africa!

  1. I really miss Eiffel Tower. The first time I went there was in 2010, but I’m planning on visiting one of my best friends there! 🙂 Did you get to the top by any chance :)? The view at night is just breath-taking!
