I finally made it to Paris and quickly discovered that it’s everything that I thought it would be and more!
The Sweetest Thing
If you know me at all, then you know that I love pastries; cupcakes, cakes, cookies, croissants… well you get the gist. Going to Paris was like dying and waking up in pastry heaven! My first taste of a Parisian macaroon had me really questioning if I’ve ever had a macaroon before. They’ve really mastered the art of pastry; the perfect combination of flavour with just the right amount of sweet…but not too sweet. Any visit to Paris would not be complete without a stop at Laduree Paris!
Paris is often referred to as the City of Love and it’s not hard to see why. It provides one romantic setting after another. Whether you’re walking along the Seine River, dining at a cafe, visiting the Eiffel tower or just listening to a Frenchman as he gives you directions to the subway. Everything about Paris just oozes romance.
Art is Life
Many are familiar with the numerous gorgeous museums in Paris: Le Louvre , the Orsay Museum and the Paris Museum of Modern Art just to name a few. And while the museums are a definite must see, the truth is, you don’t actually have to go to one to experience the art of the city. You can check out one of the many free outdoor exhibits and it only takes a half a minutes walk outside for you to realize that the architecture is is simply breathtaking. Your average doorway to an apartment building inspires a photo-shoot.
