Under and on top of the Eiffel Tower

We walked on over the to Eiffel Tower, and waited in a short security line and there we were. Back in 2008 we visited the tower and walked up two levels – this is not recommended.

TIP: Walking up the Eiffel tower even if your in great shape is hard, it is a small staircase and there are people behind you expecting you not to stop and block the flow. So if you want to go up – wait in the elevator line.

Dave took some art photos at the next level, but you can see he is not at the top, there is a second elevator – that he thought was broken and cost a second fee to take to the actual top.

When the boys waited in line and hung out up top, we had a snack. A hot dog in a baguette and soda. They cut this hot dog in half and put in a baguette, but back in 2008 my son got this same hot dog, and it wobbled out each end, we still laugh about that – I’ll try and find that photo and add it.

Next Post – Tokyo!

Were a Metro Detroit, Michigan, couple – second marriages for both of us – and we dream of retiring early to Travel the World. Follow us while we try and figure out to raise our kids, and save to retire. David is a Robot Programmer, Laura is a Medical Physicist. We put our kids before ourselves for years, saved and ate at home and now after years of all this sacrifice and raising our kids - we are closing in on empty nesting, and we realized we have the opportunity to retire earlier than most and follow our dreams to travel the world. How are we going to do this? Well we have a lot of ideas, but lets see how it works out. Our original retirement date was January 1, 2021. We are reviewing the option of working another 3 years but prefer to keep the 2021 date, either way we will be retired by 55 years old - still trying to figure out how, but working toward our goal everyday, while enjoying each other and our blended family. Follow us to see what happens. All images on this blog are copyright (c)
