I have always been fond of Paris. As an art student, I wondered why Paris was such an alluring subject among all the great artists – musicians, dancers, writers, painters, sculptors and philosophers.
When I finally took a stroll through the streets of Paris a few years ago, along the River Seine, I came to realise the meaning behind “A moveable feast” by Ernest Hemingway. Once you have lived and breathed Paris, the experience will stay with you for a lifetime.
I’m delighted to find out that Gold Coast Jazz and Blues Club is presenting “An Evening in Paris” at the Arts Centre Gold Coast on Friday 14 July 2017. The George Washingmachine Quintet from Sydney will play the music of 1930’s French Jazz. Marissa Burgess, former principal dancer of Le Moulin Rouge and her showgirls, will perform French cabaret.
I simply can’t wait to immerse myself in the music of the Hot Club du Quintette de France and the songs of the inimitable Edith Piaf and the glamour of dazzling Can Can.
So, I planned a weekend getaway to the Gold Coast with my boyfriend. We found the perfect lover’s escape – a romance room on Holiday Holiday’s website. We chose a beautiful apartment, located above the Hilton Hotel. The sunny balcony overlooking the Nerang River and the mountainous hinterland will be a perfect spot to enjoy my coffee and book on the balcony.
We will be driving from Brisbane and looking forward to escaping the city for a mini-getaway in Surfers Paradise. I’m especially looking forward to the complimentary parking at the accommodation.
I look forward to having a romantic escape to the Gold Coast to relive my Parisienne experience.
We will indeed, always have Paris.
