I took one of those hop on hop off buses and caught this shot of the Eiffel Tower as we whizzed around a corner, major bumps and all! It was a challenge to get one shot that wasn’t blurred, or where I didn’t fall over someone! Pardon! This tower, so iconic, is impossible to resist! You can if you dare, climb up the 1665 steps and feel the wind blow the tower about. It actually has been known to sway 2- 3 inches in a proper wind. But hey…if climbing up the steps, or taking the lift, doesn’t tick the boxes, just enjoy the idea of it. Don’t try to copy Pierre Labric, who cycled down the stairs of the tower in 1923. He was arrested, even if he won his bet! I’ll pass on that please. I can’t wait to get back to my desk and write up some proper blogs about the city. Cliche…indeed..but…..J’adore Paris!

Great pic! Thanks for sharing.
Many thanks..Paris just makes it easy!
cliche – but i agree – J’adore Paris! and did not know about Pierre Labric, the daredevil of the 1920’s!
Hi Prior! I still can’t get my head around…how on earth did he actually ride the bike down the stairs? Amazing bumps, but I just keep thinking…. it’s not a massively wide stair case!
