It just struck me that two of my favourite images of recent years are the photo of the Eiffel Tower at the top of this blog and the photo of the Empire State Building which at the time of writing was at the top of my Flickr stream.
Yet I haven’t been to the very top of either due to my lifelong fear of heights. In fact, I remained on the first level of the Eiffel Tower alone eating a baguette while my husband and kids went all the way up in 2007.
At least I made it to the Top of the Rock in New York in October, although we never ended up with a photo of all of us against the Manhattan skyline.
I was going to call this post Terrified of Dizzy Heights but only fans of the band DIG would understand.
