A 20 Minute stroll down the Rue Canbroone road toward the Eiffel Tower in the morning sunshine, the architecture and perfectly aligned trees leading the way. Joining a the wrong que three time before realising - Typical for me!
It takes your breath away at the sheer size, even knowing it will be ginormous before seeing it yourself. Standing underneath was something else, give you vertigo just from looking up with your feet safely on ground level!
Paying £ ... euros' to enter pillar ones, .... steps to the first floor. Finding out that Eiffel himself also constructed .............. giving ......... as 'Presents' to America.?!
The steps were numbered just incase you were losing the will to continue to climb! I thought the noveled of the sprayed numbers were a genius idea in themselves.
First floor - Popped to the toilets - bright red almost bouqet style!!
walked abound the based level 1, over the glass looking directed down ..... feet to the ground!
Then getting the lift up to tip! Rather quick lift I must say, with ears popping and iron whizzing past as you rose!
France .... is BEAUTIFUL from such a height. The grass parks, white archeitecture with terricota chimleys and roof top terraces.
Streets perfectly alined with monuments in every direction! The sights of other tourist just as amusing!
Seeing Chinese with camera set ups that one could only imagine and dream up to elderly lady couple accommopying each other on their day out (Looking like two duo from absolutely fabuous I must say!)
Using the art of google to its full potential, finding a monument in the distance that loksed spectacular and finding out its name for future referacne!
The hevans opened slightly as I came onto ground level (after feeling the tower move whilst .... feet up)
I popped into the Eiffel Shop itself to purchase the most 'Tourist' style umberella! ready for a walk over the ....... bridge. for lunch at Café Du Trocadero over looking The Eiffel Tower.
to eat 12 snails!
metro 1 & 6 to Mona lisa ....
Lourve and moments and the tube back to eat waffles and the place.
