The absolutely phenomenal experience that is Pearl Jam cannot be expressed through an amateurish video but I hope it does manage to capture some of the magic. Enjoy!
Exploring Vienna was supposed to be a secondary experience to the Pearl Jam concert my friend and I attended while there. But to be honest, we were blown away; enchanting, outstanding and absolutely worth a visit.

This past week, I took three days off mother-duty and flew to Vienna with my best friend for a Pearl Jam concert. The first time we saw them live was at Rock Werchter in Brussels in 2012 and despite having an absolute blast with a mix of Lana Del Rey, The Gossip and most notably, Jack White, it dimly compared to the three-hour musical sensation we were lucky to experience this week. Just a few rows shy from the stage, we danced amongst a sea of 10,000 fans on the floor alone. My expectations were surpassed when they played my favourite song, which you can see on the YouTube link below.
Paris, je t’aime.
While we felt one week was perhaps too long to be away from Georgie, we knew it wouldn’t be long enough for Paris. My little notebook was bursting with lists of places we wanted to visit but simply put, there was not enough time. Luckily whatever you choose to do in Paris is almost guaranteed to be perfection. We sacrificed a planned day at Versailles for a relaxed sunny Sunday soaking up Le Marais and a walk through Père Lachaise, a cemetery with over 70,000 tombs, the largest in the city of Paris. This is where you can find Jim Morrison, Maria Callas, Edith Piaf, Chopin, Oscar Wilde and hundreds of other famous names making Père Lachaise the greatest collection of dead talent in the world. I was there for Jim and this beautiful place where he is believed to be buried. Père Lachaise is capturing. A peaceful sea of tombs.
