The view from the (almost) top of the world

18 July 2010

When you are standing at the bottom of the Eiffel Tower, it is kind of difficult to imagine just how high up it actually is. Being terrified of heights, I am still none the wiser but Dave and Felix, being made of sterner stuff decided to give it a go and went to the very top.

No, I am not the slightest bit ashamed that even my five year old is less of a cowardly wuss than me. This picture gives me the horrors actually, I just can’t believe how fearless he is. I’m thrilled, proud and horrified in equal measures.

Anyway, those of you with a nervous disposition (that’ll be me then) might want to scroll swiftly past the next few photographs, which are the result of Dave holding his camera over the edge and pointing down.

And what were Oscar and I doing while this was going on? Well, I will show you:

Feet firmly on the ground. Who do you think got the better deal?
