Last year we were fortunate enough to travel to travel to Europe for a few weeks. Although we mainly spent time in the UK we did get a chance to travel to Paris for a few days and enjoy the sites. As it was a family affair, I can strictly say that I was taking mum to Paris (albeit the mother of my children!)
And what better way to celebrate this then an image of Gustav Eiffel’s famous iron tower?
Built as a temporary structure for the 1889 World’s Fair this remains the tallest building in Paris and is the most visited paid monument in the world, over 125 years later. Looking up at this icon how can one fail to have a reason to be cheerful?
I can’t remember ever seeing a photo of the Tower that wasn’t beautiful. I wonder if it’s even possible?

That’s true, Brian. The thing that has always amazed me was that it was considered by many Parisians as an eyesore in 1889 and that it was only ever meant to be a temporary structure.
