Lost in Translation: My funny email exchange about the Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower

While I was planning my visit to the Eiffel Tower, I had heard parts of the Eiffel Tower might be shut down for some reconstruction. I was thinking that maybe not all of the elevators would be running or certain floors closed during certain times…something like that… and depending on what was closed and when, I could plan my visit accordingly.

So, I sent an email through the Eiffel Tower’s official website asking if the Eiffel Tower would be shut down for any reconstruction efforts.

The response back…“No, the Eiffel Tower finished construction in 1889.”

HAHAHAHA. By far my favorite response!

Have you experienced any lost in translation exchanges during your travels?

  2. Love it! Thanks for the chuckle :). I remember having difficulty explaining to the family I stayed with in France, that I was allergic to fish. They thought I was ill and made me go lay down when they sat down at the dinner table for a meal of fish!
