I was so impressed with the fashion exhibition held at Versailles' Grand Trianon,
I wanted to pay a visit to Paris' fashion museum, Musée Galliera.
So, I bought another carnet of metro cards and headed to the 8th arrondissement.
Stepping out of Léna's metro station, I marveled at the grand buildings surrounding me.
I came to Musée Galliera to find that it was closed!
Due to construction, the exhibition is temporarily held at Musée Bourdelle in
the 14th arrondissement.
I wasn't too disappointed because the museum still had its park open in the backyard,
which was one of the most beautiful sites I have seen this Paris trip.
Because of the fine weather and high spirits, I felt like taking a stroll,
and that's what I did on the Île Saint-Louis and Île de la Cité.
Île de la Cité:
I am fully aware that my Paris days are soon coming to an end (I leave on Thursday),
so these last few days I really want to only visit special (for me) places,
which is why I headed to the 6th arrondissement to pick up something sweet
from a top pâtisserie.
I knew Pierre Hermé was closed because it's Monday, but, as it turned out, Gerard Mulot
was closed as well because today is a national holiday here in France.
I walked to Rue Bonaparte, hoping that Ladurée would be open (or at least open its doors
for me ;) and thankfully it was!
The window displays looked absolutely lovely.
Walking along the pastries counter it dawned on me that I haven't eaten a single
macaron this Paris trip. Mon dieu!
The flavors are: Salted Caramel, Melon, Rose, Minty Strawberry & Almond - Cherry.
Still wanting to see the fashion exhibition, I went to the 14th arrondissement in the afternoon.
Fermée, again! It's funny how I don't mind coming to three closed doors in one day.
Paris is so beautiful, it's always nice to have walked those streets and discovering a
I still got to take some pictures of the closed museums' courtyards:
