It’s surreal walking around a city that you have read so much about. Paris was so magical at every step, and I am still amazed that I was actually there a few weeks ago. Seeing the Eiffel tower was incredible.
Our only clear day was on Friday, which we took full advantage of after going to Versailles and walking down the Champs de Elysee to Laudree where I picked out 8 macarons. The line looked intimidating at first, but moved really quickly. I had a hard time picking out which flavors I wanted. Eventually, I decided on Lemon, Vanilla, Chocolate, Chocolate and Hazelnut, Pistachio, Rose, Raspberry, and Ginger. Honestly, I think my favorite was the Ginger and I had purely chosen it because it was shaped like a heart!
After filling up on some macarons, definitely go for a stroll to the Eiffel Tower and pick up some champagne on the way, and a baguette. Sitting down to watch the Eiffel Tower sparkle really took my breath away. It was so beautiful, and I feel so lucky to have been there with my cousin (who’s studying abroad in Italy) and all of her friends.
There’s a lot to talk about that I did in Paris, but it definitely was the city that I stood back and really took in the moment. Every moment was magical, and there is still another post coming your way soon!
See ya next time!
