I’m pretty sure most of you can remember the lyrics from the song by Helmut Fritz, Ça m’énerve:

“Ça m’énerve tous ces gens qui font la queue chez Ladurée! Tout ça pour des macarons? Mais bon… Il paraît qu’ils sont bons”

Well, apparently, Pierre Hermé macarons are plus que bons.

Tastier, juicier and the result of a Parisian advice, those macarons nearly unknown by foreigners are the best ones you could ever have.

They have many boutiques dislocated around Paris, and many others all around the world.

Don’t forget to start your tasting experience from the most delicate flavors: first of all Infinitely Jasmin, a not-too-sweet cookie which gently melts once in your mouth.
After that: Infinitely Rose. I usually don’t like rose as a flavor, I find too sweet and too artificial, but still I was persuaded to try one. I never say no. And this time it was worth it.

A must taste is the Mogador one: enjoy the long lasting taste of passion fruit with milk chocolate in your mouth. Close your eyes and imagine to be on a Brazilian beach eating an actual passion fruit, since this is the sensation released by this amazing cookie.

Wait some minutes before passing to the olive oil mandarin one. You could think it is a bizarre combination but don’t talk too early……

Finish your sensorial experience by picking the classic Caramel, Chocolate and Dark Chocolate ones.


Here is the link where you can find all the available flavors for the season.

Et voilà, les jeux sont faits!

The Travellers’ ABC

Here we are with our first advice you should follow while travelling.
We thought about starting a useful rubric regarding hot topics you should care about during your trips!

It can happen that you’ll need to rent a car.

We rented one last week with some friends to go to Québec City, 3h away from Montréal.
First of all we called different car rentals to check the prices and we chose the less expensive, the choice was amongst Alamo, Avis and Hertz. We eventually chose Avis, even if the difference in prices was not that big.

Here you can see a happy us unaware of our destiny.

First of all : ALWAYS purchase the insurance option, you never know what could happen (or what they could pretend to have happened to your car 😉 )

Second of all : ALWAYS check the car before leaving the garage where you pick it up.

We are being very sensitive about this topic since after a nice day spent in Quebec City, being super careful about the car, parking it only in toll parking to be sure not to have any problem, we returned the car and we were accused to have damaged the vehicle.
It goes without saying that we were quite angry in front of the false accusations and we realized that they were taking advantage of the fact that we are young (and innocent).
