While the 'boys' were watching football at the fanzone around the Tour Eiffel and visited two football matches, Rosa and I where doing 'girl stuff' and went to Jardin des Plants, the sunday Bird & Flower market on Ile de la Cité, shopping in Le Marais and drinking coffee with pain au chocolat.
The atmosphere in Paris was very pleasant and we have seen nothing but positive fans. Rosa and I have even been on the Euro 2016 Fanzone, if only for a brief moment...
I'm not a football fan at all (au contraire), but I love the passion my son Minne has for football. He's a freelance sports journalist and writes for the national newspaper and Staantribune.
Minne preferes to write about the experience rather than match report.
Minne wrote an article about the Football festival at the Eiffel Tower.
Staantribune (Grandstand) is a magazine about football culture, looking at a different way to soccer. The articles deal with everything that has to do with football, except the game itself. In the magazine are great stories, pieces with a humorous note, interviews with a separate angle, interesting background stories about marginal phenomena and articles about fan culture.
