Watch Your Step

It is hard to avoid steep stairs when traveling and there are times when it is the only way to get to places with amazing views. Especially in historic places that have existed long before modern technologies like elevators, there simply is no choice but to scale the steps as they would have centuries ago. It can be strenuous at times, but the reward at the end is generally worth the effort. Because climbing them can be difficult, we often take photographs of the stairs to remind ourselves later about what we had to do to see the place that we were visiting. Some of them turn out to be interesting photos in and of themselves without having to have had the memory associated with them.

    Its amazing the stairs we will scale on holiday! Have you ever been to Dijon and scaled the 321 steps on the Tower of Philip le bon? Your pic of the Leaning Tower of Pisa stairs looked very similar.

    • No, we have not been to Dijon. Sounds like quite a set of stairs to climb. Going down the stairs in the leaning tower was actually harder than going up. The steps are worn and slippery and lean forward slightly.

  3. I enjoy the challenge of stair climbing and I’ve had several experiences. In Kuala Lumpur, the entrance to the Dark Cave and the many temples in Bangkok.
