Photo of the week #1

Just a little throwback sunday – is that a thing? Throwback thursday sounds better but anyway… We’ll go with that – as picture of the week.

This was exactly one year ago, when I attended the McFly concert at the Royal Albert Hall for their 10th birthday.

*LIFE STORY ALERT*

McFly might not ring a bell to you, but to me it has a special meaning. I heard about this band when I was around 13 and I immediately liked their kind of music. They were young, British, and they sounded a like a mix of the Beatles and Blink 182.

The first song I ever heard was 5 colors in her hair; and I then started to get hold of every single song they released. I started to get really interested in them and Youtube was starting to get popular at that time, so I started looking at some videos of them in order to know them a little better. There were lots of interviews and videos of them in their everyday lives. All those videos about them that I used to watch were of course in English, and it therefore gave me, little by little, some additional knowledge of English. I really started to get into it and I gradually grow love for England, the country they were from. I cannot really explain why, but I feel like England and London in particular reminds me of that time when I was watching McFly’s videos, wishing I was a part of their lives and there, in London to see them in real life.

*BACK TO THE POINT*

Getting the tickets to see them perform at the RAH was a struggle. I eventually got 2 tickets (one extra ticket for one of my best friend, with who I shared my love for McFly). It took me months to realize I was going to see them, 7 years after hearing their first tune. I was even  more excited because the concert was in London, and it took place for a special occasion. I would not have accepted to miss their 10th birthday!

Anyway I am so glad I got to see the band that helped me build the person I am today. Also glad I got to do this with one of my bestest friends.

Now, the best part : the pictures!

The day started with a little stroll around London.
A walk through St James’s Park (with the essential cafe latte), then to Trafalgar Square and the riverside.

I’m sorry if the photos are blurry but I was so excited to be at this concert that I did not really pay attention to the shots I was taking!

Hope you enjoyed this picture of the week!

Speak soon,
