Inner beauty of the Eiffel Tower
Submitted: Jul 18, '08
Great Travel Moment
You can't really understand how high up you are when you simply use the elevator to ascend the Eiffel Tower. After viewing the sights of the most intriguing city in the world from one of the most famous structures ever built, a guard told us they were getting ready to close, and taking the stairs down would only take a few minutes. During a trek that I thought might actually kill me before I reached bottom, I looked up instead of at my feet, and remembered I was in THE EIFFEL TOWER!!!! I took this photo to remind me to appreciate every moment especially when I was lucky enough to realize a lifelong dream of going to Paris.
