While abroad, I have noticed a trend.
Whenever I go to a country or city, there just so happens to be a big festival or celebration going on. Here is a list of them so far with links!
Paris, France: Bastille Day
Also known as, French National Day. A day dedicated to the day the French stormed the Bastille; which showed the French people uniting in the French Revolution.
Glasgow, Scotland: Merchant City Festival
A day of celebrating Scottish art, food, and entertainment
Amsterdam, The Netherlands: Pride Week
A week celebrating members of the LGBT+ community. These events are of growing popularity across the world as more countries are recognizing and legalizing gay marriage.
Brighton, England: Pride Week
Similarly to Amsterdam Pride, Brighton’s Pride Festival is known as the biggest festival in all of the UK! I am glad to say that I will be attending my first Pride here!
