One weekend, two iconic monuments

Berlin- Brandenburger Tor. Built between 1788 and 1791
Paris- Eiffel Tower. Built between 1887-1889

I’d never been to Berlin before so Brandenburger Tor was a first for me (as well as many other iconic landmarks like Potsdamer Platz that you keep talking about in German text books). But Paris I’ve been to many a time and yet the Eiffel Tower glittering at night can just take your breath away! Even if you’ve seen it a million times before. It was like connecting with an old friend.
