The day had arrived – we were going to the Beyonce Renaissance concert in Paris.
But first, a quick trip to the Louvre Museum.
After dropping off a change of clothes to my sister’s hotel room, we headed over to the museum and I tried to quickly take in the beautifully designed buildings leading up to it. Before heading inside, we all took pictures and even got asked to have our pictures taken by a photographer outside.
After posing for him for a few minutes, we airdropped 2 of our favorites and we headed into the museum. I love museums because they allow me to view pieces of history, so I was excited to visit the Louvre for the first time. Given the vastness of the museum, the fast pace that we were moving, the fact that the Louvre is one of the most famous museums in the world and that it was packed with people, it was hard to take everything in.
I know that there’s so much I didn’t get to see at the Louvre – my dream is to go back at night and have a private experience; A girl can dream, right? – but I still enjoyed every minute of what I did see.
After a quick walk-through that lasted maybe 1.5 hours, we grabbed lunch at a newly opened restaurant called Caffe Concerto Carrousel du Louvre right outside the Louvre’s exit. I ordered a burger and an iced vanilla latte to keep my going (the coffee was good; the burger wasn’t anything special). We spotted my favorite macaroon spot, Lauduree, right across from the restaurant and stopped in before heading to the group’s hotel to get ready for the concert.
We quickly showered and got ready, then headed down to the lobby to meet our van who would be bringing us to the concert. We made it to the stadium about an hour before the show started and got to see some celebrities arrive – Jay-Z, Pharrell, Kris Jenner, Lenny Kravitz, and others who I could not make out had a crowd in an uproar, which was fun to watch.
Finally, the screens prompted us when the show started and we sang and danced our hearts out for 3 hours straight, which felt much shorter. Beyonce is the queen of live performances – she gives you top-tier vocals, choreography, costume changes, and visuals. It was such an unforgettable experience and I left so inspired. I hadn’t planned to go to the concert in Paris since I already had a ticket to go to the LA stop, but I’m so thankful to my sister’s friend who gave me her ticket when she could not make it. It was a night that I’ll never forget.
After the concert, I grabbed my bags from my sister’s room, called my Uber, and ordered food on Uber Eats on my way to my room. The food took a long time to arrive and wasn’t good, so I just did my skincare routine, showered, and went to bed.
I’ll be back with a recap of Day 4 of my trip next week. Until then, have a great weekend!
