Aside

Beaucoup des pâtisseries….and more delicious food!

Bonjour, bonjour! Ca fait trop longtemps!

As I hope anyone reading this by now knows, I recently had the most unbelievable experiences in Paris earlier this year in May and have been attempting (and sadly failing…) to document specific experiences via this blog.  It is my first attempt and summer was a busy time, but now that I’m back in school and got a rhythm the upkeep of this beauty should become easier and more punctual. 🙂

As I hope you all also know by now, I had a list of things I wanted to do while in Paris.  Being the insane foodaholic that I am, one of them was manger beaucoup des pâtisseries! For anyone who doesn’t know what that means…it means eat lots of delicious baked goods and pastries!  My absolute weakness is always dessert or any baked good of any sort – I had many une quiche délicieuse and way, way, way too many baguettes….if that is in fact possible…I’m still trying to decide!

So allow me to (attempt to) share with your the variety of deliciousness that I experienced.  For the sake of being efficient, I will start with my “goal” photos – the pastries! – however as the post progresses you will see non-pastry related deliciousness that I felt absolutely had to be shared, regardless of its non-pâtisserie status.  Unfortunately, many of the pastry-family foods I devoured were devoured in my hotel bed late at night and I don’t consider the images of them clear enough to put up here…I will say that raspberry financiers became one of my absolute favourites and that I (surprisingly) did not like canele!

Now, feast your eyes…unfortunately not our stomachs! 😦

Je ne peux pas attendre pour… 20 things I can’t wait to see and do in Paris!

And so it is here, the day where I stop counting days and have been counting down the hours since this moring.

Of course, I was NOT impressed when I found out moments ago that my hour count has just gone back up almost two hours due to flight delays.  I am currently trying to remain calm while my mind has a spazz of its own as my mum (and former flight attendant) threw a whopping list (at least it seemed that way) of things I need to do/confirm when checking in at the airport to ensure that this delay does not stop me or my luggage from making my connecting flight in London.

Needless to say, my response to this mental spazz is to sit back, enjoy the last glass of wine in my fridge, and think about all the things I can’t wait to experience on this trip – which is how I ended up here, writing this post.
