Today is our last 1/4 day in Paris. In the morning we went shopping at BHV (Bazar de l’Hôtel de Ville), another famous department store which is located just a block away from our hotel. We spent most of our time at the household department browsing through the pots, plates, baking items, etc. Then we head to Boulangerie Julien again (the one we went to on our first day in Paris) to sample one last time its super delicious roule pistachio chocolate (pistachio chocolate rolls) €1.70 and palmiers €1.80. Then it’s back to hotel to pack up and leave. Tell you what, only in Paris hotel you can smell the delicious freshly baked croissant. I dunno why. I’m guessing the hotel restaurant bake their own croissant. LOL

Our next and final destination is back to London via Eurostar. Although our train will depart at 2.40pm we head to Gare du Nord (railway station) around 11.30am (about 3 hours earlier) since it’s better to be early than late. You’ll never know what gonna happened like any mishap that will delay your journey. We spent our free time lepak-ing at the railway station. Haha
