So many people around the world dream about going to Paris, at least once in their lives. I wasn’t one of those people.
Thou I agree that the city is amazing, happy, full of energy, history, and elegance it was never on my list.
But destiny wanted me there at some point in my life, by bringing two of my favorites bands: Guns n’ Roses and Depeche Mode. Right on the same week that I have my holidays.
So I planned it all, got the tickets for both GnR was about 92 € and for Depeche Mode 65 €, on Viagogo website.
To be sincere I had no idea on where I would stay since I couldn’t find much help, so I picked by the price some aparthotel on district 18th, which I do not recall the name. But all I can say is that was alright, clean, big, cheap I remember that I paid around 685 € for the ten days that I’ve stayed there, plus 200 € for security deposit which was given back at the end.
Paris is very easy to move by subway, even me who hates public transport felt very convenient since I was a bit far away from the center.
On the day of the concert again I took the metro and then a train, the same one that goes to the airport and reached the Stadium of Paris.
The first show was Depeche Mode, after a few days of rain, we were blessed by very hot weather. Was amazing to gather with people who love the same music as me, I don’t often find that ☹️
Without the delay, they entered the stage and made the time stop for me. With a few new songs and the classics like “Enjoy the Silence”, we all sang and danced together.
One week for me to recover my energy and then Guns N’ Roses. Oh! This time was maybe 2.5 times or even more than Depeche. There were people from everywhere, every skin color, language, and background. This only football and music can do, united everyone because of common love.
So that’s the reason I went to Paris first of all, and then I keep going back over and over after falling in love with the city❤️?
