A Bird's Eye View

I experienced the trip of a lifetime this past summer going to Paris and London with my family. One of the many things I got to do while I was in Paris was a trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower (La Tour Eiffel in France). The Eiffel Tower is 1040 feet tall and has two different stories to make it to the top. I had to wait in a line for about 50 minutes just to get to the first story.
When I was on the first story of the Eiffel Tower, the platform was huge. It had a restaurant, souvenir shop and an ice cream stand. The only way to the top was another line, so I stood in the line and waited for awhile longer. Then I finally made it to the front of the line and stepped into a giant glass elevator. The elevator quickly went up and jerked to a stop.
I was at the top of the Eiffel Tower! The view was amazing. I felt like I could see all of France. After awhile,I hopped back on the elevator and watched as I came closer and closer back to the ground. Being at the top of the tower was definitely one of the most remarkable experiences of my life.



This story is great! I loved it because i want to go to Paris SO bad!
