Firstly, because the trip felt so short. How I wished I could add on a week or two.. spend a little longer time in each city.. see all the things that I wanted to see.. in a more relaxed manner..
Secondly, because I would be going home alone. Farah, Kak Minie and Kak Faez took additional 10 days off, so after Paris they would be heading to Lucerne, Jungfrau, Zurich, Milan, Athens and Istanbul. Imagine that!
Anyway, before leaving, I did manage to buy something that I wanted to try so much...
|Pierre Hermé maracons, the best in France!|
If you talk about macarons from France (or Paris in specific), two major names come about – Ladurée and Pierre Hermé. Some people prefer one over the other. For me, having tried both, Pierre Hermé is undoubtedly the winner. Of course, their macarons aren’t cheap. That box of 7 pieces cost me EUR 17 (RM 68). That would be about RM 10 a piece. But the taste.. OMG.. heavenly!

|The chocolate spread is super duper yummy.|
Checked in. Did tax refund. Walked through security. Cleared passport. Boarded. Buckled up. Switched on in-flight entertainment. Put on headphones. Ready to fly home.
Au revoir, Paris! J'aimerais te rendre visite encore!
