Q&A: Have you ever seen/been to the Eiffel tower?

I have seen the Eiffel tower many times but I must admit that I’ve only been up to the top once, in the early 90s. It’s the same for the Chateau d’If, I’ve only ever been there once with a couple of friends who came to Marseille as tourists. Actually it’s the same with the majority of big landmarks – Notre Dame de la Garde, Notre Dame de Paris, the White Church in Helsinki, etc. The only touristy spots I do tend to go back to are those related to nature, for example I consider the calanques to be my backyard (photo from the calanques below), I like going for a run in Seurasaari because it’s a nice 3km loop and I’ve been known to hop on the boat to Suomenlinna just to walk around there a bit.
