A visit to Paris is only complete once you have visit the original macaroon maker, Ladurée. Our last day in Paris was an intense rush as we were attempting to meet up with our friends' friends, and then me and my friend were trying to meet up with our men (we split up to do some girls' shopping without the boys!). We were all suppose to meet under the Arc de Triomphe at 3pm and then proceed to go up the Eiffel Tower, but of course it didn't go to plan. My friend and I ended up waiting underneath the Arc de Triomphe for about 2 hours, but alas no one showed up! So we decided to walk down the Champs Elysées and take in the Parisienne atmosphere. We saw so many people with Ladurée bags, but couldn't find the store, and because of how late it was getting (since we missed a couple of hours waiting) we thought we would leave Paris without trying the famous macaroons.
Anyway, fast forward a couple of hours and we finally meet up with our boys (surprised they didn't get lost) and we decide to find dinner then walk down the Champs Elysées all the way to the Lourve. As we are searching for a good restaurant to eat at, low and behold we come across the annex of Ladurée! To say I was excited is a massive understatement!
After a little line up and a few hard decisions later we had our little pack of macaroons and took them down to the Lourve to enjoy by the fountain and the mesmerising pyramid :)
