Despite its renowned tourist attractions, Paris was never a destination I had any particular desire of visiting prior to my recent trip. In fact I've never quite understood the fascination surrounding this city. Although it's on average a 45-60 minutes flight from London, I've always wanted to venture further out into the world, and experience places that are not overly parallel to my everyday life. What changed my mind? Two words... Chris Brown.
A few weeks ago the girls and I met up at Bill's to discuss our upcoming summer holiday over a cup of coffee. Upon arrival my friend Yasman immediately mentioned that she had just seen on Twitter that Chris Brown was about to go on tour around Europe. Now as some of you may know, Chris Brown has been barred from the U.K. since 2010, due to his altercation with Rihanna. After checking out his tour dates we discovered his concert in Paris conveniently fell on the weekend of the spring bank holiday meaning we could make a make a mini trip of it all.. and that's exactly what we did. Besides from livin' it up at Chris Brown's concert (which was amazing btw), and almost losing my voice as a consequence, we also did a lot of sightseeing which I captured below..
