UP And UP On Eiffel Tower, Paris

FINALLY, WE REACHED EIFFEL TOWER AFTER THE LONG WALK.....

Our determination... 
More from Aaron and my friend... their hard efforts paid off....
Took a few pictures before we crossed over to feel the "real thing"....

Then when we saw the super long queue at the Eiffel Tower, Aaron and my friend were quite disappointed... Not me though, that means we couldn't go up, right?  Both of them wanted so badly to go up the tower whereas I rather stay down and look up instead..... *height phobia*... Well, actually I have mixed feelings.... 
Part of the Long Queue from one end to the other.....
Someone looks happy though... 
Thought we didn't have to go up....

I told them to go ahead, I would wait for them to come down but the Super Long queue was holding them back.... then they saw a sign... "For disabled/prams, line up here" and the queue was empty!!  Oh...oh.... that means..... 
Yes, that means.... I have to come up!!
All the way up... I CLOSED MY EYES and told them to block the view when it was moving...

For those on wheelchair, the ticket cost 4 Euros and that goes for the companion as well..
Normal ticket cost 11 Euros... we saved a fair bit here again!! 
So I sacrificed my FEAR for them.. after all, they have done a lot for me... 
hahahaha....
Anyway, so glad I did come up.... 
Not so scary actually... I only created my own fear!
Everyone is happy!
Scenery was breathtaking.... too bad our cameras didn't give much credit....
The scenes before sunset....
I couldn't see much of the view sitting down.... so....

I need to stand up for a short while.... to show my presence.... 
hahahaa....
We took a lot of pictures before and after sunset....
It is really a Great Privilege to be up on Eiffel Tower...
I never thought it would become a reality for me.... 
Thank you!!

  6. A blessing in disguise indeed. I have not been up there and I don't think I will due to the long queue and also the weak local currency so no travelling for me. Good to see all of you enjoying the view up there, especially you for conquering your fear of heights.

  9. See, I told you Europe is a very "cacat friendly" place. Top tip for the travelers: next time, break your travel companion's leg when wanna go to places with lots of queue, trade off is you have to take care of him/her, but the trade off is worth it hahaha!
