If I ever got tired of looking out and seeing the Eiffel Tower through my window, I could always turn my head straight forward and look at the beautiful border of the Seine, the bridge Pont de la Tournelle, the top of Panthéon or the world famous restaurant La Tour D’Argent… It could have been worse, to say the least.
There are very few things in life that could beat a long lunch with a plate of good pasta, together with an amazing friend, in Paris, on a hot and sunny day, doing nothing but watching people walk by and chit chatting about nothing and everything.
Normally, on Sundays, they close down the traffic on the road closest to the Seine (on the right bank) in Paris so that people can walk, learn how to ride their bikes (yes, I’ve seen it), stroll, rollerblade or just sit down and enjoy the sun.
My new found favourite flavour for macarons is the chocolate/caramel one. Unfortunately there are not that many pastry shops that offer it but I’ve managed to find two that does! Let the battle begin…
The winner? Café Pouchkine. Ok, this was really not hard at all. This might be one of the best macarons I’ve ever tasted in my life. It’s so good and just the perfect blend between caramel and chocolate flavour. This café is simply a must when in Paris, especially if you like macarons. And second place? Pierre Hermé. This is not a bad macaron but it doesn’t keep the promise of a chocolate and caramel flavour. The chocolate is way too overpowering for me… I couldn’t even taste the caramel. And that’s a shame sine caramel flavour is my favourite.
If you want to try the famous falafel in Paris, this is the street you should be looking for. And even if you don’t like falafels you should visit this cozy street in the middle of Le Marais.
Soaking in the early spring sun.
Sometimes I couldn’t even believe my eyes when I saw this sky.
