As you can imagine my first visit to Paris was jam-packed with things to do and see. The Louvre, Opera Garnier House (Palais Garnier), Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, Sacré-Cœur, Notre-Dame, Moulin Rouge, Versailles…I simply couldn’t stand not to see it all. Standing in front of the Mona Lisa was quite the experience. Needless to say, she won the staring contest. One visit to the Eiffel Tower wasn’t enough, this beauty had to be experienced in the daytime and the nighttime, and it had to be climbed all the way to the top. Palace of Versailles was incredible; more than words can describe. To think people actually lived there, and not just anyone, Marie Antoinette herself. This place is mind-blowing.
I couldn’t get enough of the crepes, cider, and croissants. I had them for breakfast almost every day, and being the macaron fan that I am, a visit to Ladurée was in order.
