What about the Eiffel Tower?

You actually won’t find any answers to your frequently asked questions on the Eiffel Tower here. Ha. What you will find though are more questions. From the dumbest to the deepest most unconventional questions one can possibly come up with, the Eiffel Tower has a list of it. I found myself so certain that I won’t bring any questions when I visit the Eiffel Tower, cos I knew that there nothing to question – it’s THE Eiffel Tower for crying out loud. What’s there to ask? Everything is there to felt and absorbed, to be understood, just like paintings and natural world wonders.

But, no matter how well travelled a person may seem be, no matter how much one may have seen and experienced, there are still moments that are bound to make one feel completely dumbfounded to the point that there’s nothing left to do but to ask. Why. What. How come.

And what’s funny is, I would think that travelling some more would limit that, but instead, it had a slightly different effect. Finding it rather easy to wonder and ponder some more on the new things out there, even if I’ve read and almost memorized about these places a trillion times, even if I have seen more than a few.

Why is the Eiffel Tower so famous? What time is more convenient to take pictures of the Eiffel Tower? How to get to the Eiffel Tower by foot? Where is the Eiffel Tower located? Can you climb right to the top of the Eiffel Tower using the stairs? Where is the best view of the Eiffel Tower? Is it worth it to pay for the entrance to the Eiffel Tower? What are the souvenirs you can buy in the Eiffel Tower? How will the Eiffel Tower change me? What is the Eiffel Tower made from? How is the tower lit at night? So many questions, everything is better left answered by being there and seeing it for your very eyes. I left the La Tour Eiffel with more questions than answers, which may be funny yes, but that’s the good thing. I may not have found all the answers, but for the tower to have that lasting impression proves how much striking manifestation and influence this structure has. Incredible. It looks a trillion times better in real life.

I had a lucky chance to visit the Eiffel Tower almost 4 years ago. I was curious to explore this tallest man-made structure because I had heard a lot about this iron lattice tower. When I saw its splendor brightness I become surprised. It presents a gorgeous view at night. Next I have a plan to go to the las vegas sunset helicopter tour.
