The Atomium

From a young age I had only seen The Atomium once on TV. I never thought that I would actually be standing outside ready to in. When you do see it from afar the first thought that comes in your head is 'How did they build it?’ And when you are outside on the line ready to go in it really does look HUGE. Once you enter and are ready to go to the top, you do feel quite small because it’s so big. You do on line for a few minutes before you enter the lift. Once you do enter the elevator, the guide tells you to look up and she switches the elevator lights off and it just a HUGE building. But I am telling you, once you reach the top, the view is just breathtaking. On the top there also a small restaurant, I don’t know what is like because we did not have enough time to go there for a break.

One thing that I will most definitely recommend is that if you are afraid of heights or suffer from vertigo, don’t go because it is high. . .
