"Let's cross, there's another one on that side of the street"
That was probably the sentence that I said more often last weekend while I was in Paris, for the first time. Soooooooo many great bakeries, patisseries, cheeseries, chocolateries, and other food related shops, that really makes it difficult to walk straight in a street without "zigzagging" all the time!Paris was, as I imagined, beautiful. So many thing to do, to visit, to see, to eat, to live... Everything is huge there: the monuments, the avenues, the macarons...
A French friend of mine told me that I HAD to go to Ladurée, because they have the BEST macarons in the Universe. And I think she might be right!... Not only the macarons, but everything there was so perfect and delicious looking! I wanted to buy each and every variety of entremets, pastries, bonbons... But I needed to focus, I was there for the macarons, and macarons I got! And I got them BIG!
Macaron heaven in pistachio and raspberry flavours!
"Honey, they blew up the Macarons!"
Yep, I'm pretty much in love...
Ok, with my full belly, I can do some normal turism sightseeing now. Wanna come with me?
The triumphal Arch of Triumph
The view from the middle of the Eiffel Tower. Everything covered in snow...
Cold? Who, me?
I'm getting hungry again. Maybe a rocher chocolate from L'Atelier du Chocolat is what I need...
... Or maybe I could bite into that lady's baguette? Parisians carry their baguettes everywhere, all the time... It makes you crave them!
It's almost night, let's carry on with the turistic activity.
The Basilique du Sacré-Coeur on top of a hill. Gorgeous and with a wonderful view of the city from up there.
The Seine River and the Notre-Dame Cathedral.
I could show you so many more pictures of other Parisian beauties, but I'll end here and leave you with these ones that I'm sure you'll love:
That was the last treat before heading back home. Back to real life now! Not so cold, but not so sweet either...
