Last year I went on a euro trip with the worst travel partner ever. We had one day in Paris (which she had been to before) and she insisted on spending most of the day at the champs-elysees so she could visit a store she liked the year before. She also pushed for us to go to McDonalds in every city we visited because she’s a picky eater and had no interest in trying the food everywhere had to offer. Anyways, one plus for me being on the champs-elysees was Laduree. I knew them as a bakery that had world famous macarons so I decided once I was there I would splurge to try some. My travel partner also splurged and then bitched to me about the cost to which I said she didn’t need to buy them if she didn’t want to spend the money and she told me she HAD to because they are famous (a fact she didn’t know prior to me telling her as I made her walk in the shop).
So that kind of ruined the whole experience which is made even sadder by the fact that I really wanted to visit a Parisian tea shop and at the time realized my time in Laduree was my one chance to do that (seeing as she told me we had no time to visit a tea shop since we only had the one day). Why didn’t I realize this? Well, stupid me didn’t realize Laduree was a tea shop until Sil started posting about their teas and now that she was awesome enough to share, I realize I missed out on a good tea shop as this vanilla tea is lovely. Creamy and sweet and just vanilla deliciousness. So thank you Sil for sharing and given me the chance to indulge in the Parisian teas I missed on while I was in France!
