Don't Look Down! La Tour Eiffel Gets A Glass Floor

True confession time...I am terribly afraid of heights.  I love the Eiffel Tower as the iconic symbol of Paris as much as any Francophile, but the one and only time I went to the top, I cried the entire time. Never again, I swore back in 1984...and so far, I have enjoyed the twinkling of the tower from afar.

Last week, visiting the Eiffel Tower became even more daunting for acrophobes like me. After a $38 million refurbishment, the premier etage, has re-opened with a GLASS FLOOR! Yikes...not for me...but it does look pretty cool in the photos:


If you remember this post, then you may remember that when we are in Hong Kong I am staying at the highest hotel in the world, the Ritz Carlton Hong Kong, which is on the 102-118th floors of the 8th tallest building in the world. Frankly, I am quite nervous about staying that high in the sky, but generally my fear is of heights in open spaces (including glass floors and elevators!)

Are you afraid of heights or would you relish walking out onto the glass floors at
the Eiffel Tower??
