It has been 131 years since the Eiffel Tower's inauguration. To celebrate from home, we're looking at some of the most stunning photos of the Eiffel Tower in Paris shared by our favourite travel bloggers!

The Eiffel Towers is one of the most iconic structures in the world and it turns 131 years old today. It took a little over two years to erect the structure that is now one of the most-visited monuments that people pay to visit! Given the current health-scare around the globe, all our travel plans have been cancelled indefinitely because safety always comes first. But that doesn't mean we can't appreciate the glorious Eiffel Tower that has been a symbol of love, romance, and hope for people all over. In fact, it is in these times of distress that we need to occupy ourselves with positive things.

So, here's taking a look at some stunning photos of the Eiffel Tower shared by our favourite travel bloggers:

Paris, je t'aime. ♡⁠ Paris definitely is the city of love. Take a walk on the majestic stairs right in front of « L’esplanade du Trocadéro », also called « L’esplanade des Droits de l’Homme ». It is worth waking up at 4am and grab an Uber or the first metro to catch the beauty of the sunrise. Capture the magic of the moment and quiet morning. This is probably one of the best views of the Eiffel Tower and the most romantic one.⁠ ✧✧✧✧✧⁠ Location: Paris⁠ ✧✧✧✧✧⁠ Traveler Tips and Photos By Travel Girl Myriam @mimikey, Photo by Morgan @morganitogram⁠ ✧✧✧✧✧⁠ We Are Travel Girls is a community created to inspire, connect, educate and empower female travelers.

Being a wanderer made you very fluid. You would instinctively flow into places, absorb their culture, and make it your home in a short space of time. And then you would flow out without the least bit of resistance, because you knew that everything was temporary anyway. In a sense it made the world a lot smaller, as you’d leave a part of yourself in every place, only to return again another time. And the more that I travelled, the more I found a home inside myself. It was a sense of security that couldn’t be obtained from material comfort. . The more that I wandered, the more interconnected my life became. I came to recognise the scenery as changing shades of the same thing; though the external forms would keep evolving, you came to see it was all just consciousness rearranging itself into a different landscape. My constant exploration of the outside world caused me to melt into my experience, becoming a part of it rather than standing on the outside. You started to identify with the universe as a whole rather than a small segment, expanding into the oneness of the life around you. It made you drop your ego because you had to submit yourself to the flow of life as it happened. . Travelling was a lot about letting go. Because you were constantly finding new things to fill the spaces left by things you didn’t need. It allowed you greater autonomy of what you invited into your life because sensory inputs were far too varied. As you travelled further into the world you travelled further into yourself; transcending all the perceptions that limited you into a smaller reality. And then there just remained a looking forward into the future albeit with a pleasant reminiscence of the past. Being a wanderer taught you that the essence of movement was stillness. Because everything was in you and you were in everything; you weren’t really going away from anything.
