257. Sadaharu Aoki
Sadaharu Aoki was a pâtisserie I had on my list of places to go when I visited Paris. Unfortunately I didn't end up going to half the places on that list (due to unplanned events/ran out of time) but I am glad I made it here. They have a boutique on Rue de Vaugirard; about a 5-min walk from my hotel, so I came one morning to buy "breakfast". I wanted to buy everything in that store!! In the end I got a fruit cake, macha (green tea) cakes, champagne biscuits (the pink sticks), macaron rusks and a box of their signature rainbow chocolates. I devoured everything but the box of chocolates within the first day. The macaron rusks were my favourite & I'm craving them now as I type this post.......
I thought these would be cool to photograph so I waited til I came back to Toronto before I ate them. They're all chocolate with different flavoured fillings inside like lemon, blueberry, green tea, passion fruit, orange, and my least favourite - wasabi!
A few souvenirs I brought back from London
Union Jack box of Laduree macarons
Keychain I got from Copenhagen. Any of you watch the Euro Cup? I've been watching almost all the matches but I can't really choose a favourite team. I like so many of them (I'm not from there so I'm allowed to hahah) I wanted to see the Scandinavian teams advance but unfortunately they're both eliminated now..
I still regret not booking my Eurotrip for this month instead so I could've watched it from there!
Sailing with my friend last weekend.
I'll continue with my vacation posts soon! Just thought I should take a short break from posting those back to back.
