Two posts in one day!

Well, today is special because 126 years ago, the Eiffel Tower opened to the public for the first time.

To mark the unveiling of the Tower, which has become a symbol of Paris and France,DSC00409  Google is featuring a Doodle by illustrator Floriane Marchix on its homepage today.

My love affair with France started in Paris and I have been lucky enough to return many times over the years…but have only been up the Eiffel Tower, on one occasion, with my family. The photos are a happy record of our visit.
