Travel Theme: Above Paris.

There was no way we were prepared to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower with Mischa Belle. She appeared heartbroken as we explained our problem of vertigo. Then, out of the blue, we were approached by a lovely South American family, a couple with two teenage children. They had purchased too many tickets on the internet due to an error in the system. Would we like to buy a ticket for the next carriage which would leave in 20 minutes time? We established that they were not scammers and so negotiated a deal: Would they mind escorting 14-year-old Mischa to the top? We would purchase two tickets, but Mr T would exit after the fourth level. They were more than happy with the arrangement.SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

Mischa not only got to the top to take these photos of Paris from above, but learnt a great deal about Paris from the escorting couple, who had worked there for many years.

Mischa , who is now 17, has just finished her VCE finals in French. I am sure she plans to return. Well done Mischa.

  1. Haha, we’ve admired the Eiffel tower from the terra firma too, not just vertigo but ridiculously long queues have kept us earth bound. I could spend a month in Paris, sitting at a pavement table in a cafe sipping wine and people watching. I need a holiday!


    1. Me too. But then, You are at AB, or have you just returned? I am heading off to lake Tyers on Tuesday. A small escape, not quite Paris, but there will be wine and fish.


  2. Golly, I’m just about fainting as I read. I’m fine with heights if I’m not near an edge or can’t look straight down. Nice solution to your predicament and the photos do look amazing. Keep a look out for our big (massive) pin oak as you go through Trafalgar towards Lake Tyers! 🙂


  3. Ah yes I will Fergie. and I have to go to the butcher with the good smoked goods. Where in Traf is that again? And then after that, a few nice spuds at Thorpdale. Then a little stay at Paynesville, ancestor home. Can’t wait.


Now over to you.
