so ready for my first full day in Paris. Told the girls I’d meet them at Musee D’Orsay, but wow it was raining. Like, epically pouring! and Musee D’Orsay had super long lines outside, we decided to find cover
So we found a cafe nearby to have breakfast
croissants and all. breakfast around paris is indeed fancy :)
after breakfast, it was still raining - so we decided to change the plan just a bit. towards the Caracombs it was - at least that would be undercover and we wouldnt be drenched
on the Paris Metro, see how wet we all were even without lining up outside Musee D’Orsay
on the way there we found a little piece of home
the catacombs. this was an experience in itself, a web of bones under the city of Paris, all arranged in bone types and all. so so many dead remains there. amazing stuff, if not a bit freaky.
next stop of Musee D’Orsay. But since no photos were allowed, none were taken. so basically, I got another dose of culture, with a few Van Gogh, Gauguin and Delacroix painting to see. wonderful Museum!
Next stop after that was macarons! Pierre Herme was the stop, thanks to someone’s high recommendation. She knows who she is!
effing hell SH. THEY WERE INDEED DIVINE. I think you have ruined macarons for me for good. the rose one especially - so yum! We tried almost all flavours, and rose was the lightest and most awesome one. the passionfruit came a close second.
However, the best one was the one pictured by itself. it was like this giant rose macaron with lychee custard inside, complete with raspberry. SO SO YUM. I recommend that next time you go SH!
after macarons, we decided to go for dinner, and according to gourmet traveller - we are going for the best salad in a bowl in Paris for less than 10 Euros!
Paris metro is epic, especially interchange stations. the walk between some metro stations is so so long!
dinner at Bistrot V!
such good salad. especially with travelling, you often dont eat well and this salad was a life saver and awesome too!
then after dinner, we went in search of more macarons from Laduree to compare to PH - but it was closed by the time we went :( Its ok. Ill get Laduree from Tokyo instead =P
then we capped off the night by walking the streets of Paris. Great day and thank you Paris!
