I don’t remember if I mentioned it or not that Eiffel Tower was my biggest travel related surprise ever in life. No photos or videos can show how tall, how big, how magnificent it is in real life. When I first went to Paris in 2009 I was thinking – oh by the way, would be nice to see the tower if I get a chance. And I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it, how casually this huge structure stands near ordinary apartment buildings.
This time I went there in the evening, watched the sunset and also took some photos from the ground. It was around 20:00 and when I turned around to leave I saw that the tower lights started to sparkle, and no photos could capture it, so I made a few seconds of video. It is my first video ever, but at least it shows a little bit of the sparkling lights that i saw that evening.
