The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

Baked goodies @ Eric Kayser (near Gare Montparnasse), Paris

Just a short and sweet one, as I switch back to writing about our trip to Europe. After spending four wonderful days in Paris, it was time to pack up our things and head off to Montparnasse Station to catch the high-speed train to the Brittany region where we spent a few days. We started out early to catch our 8am train, hoping to grab breakfast on the way. Unfortunately the bakery near our hotel was not yet open, but thankfully, we came across an Eric Kayser boulangerie (bakery) on our way to the train station that was already open for business at that early hour. I was quite happy to encounter an Eric Kayser bakery on our way out of Paris, because it was on my list of things to eat but we hadn't had the opportunity to make our way to one of the Maison Kayser boulangerie. The baked goodies we bought were all fantastic, and Kayser's baguette ranked in the top three baguettes we ate in France (another one in my top three being Bonheur de Pains).

One of the things the 4.5-year-old likes to get - Pain Au Chocolat (chocolate croissant):

And another of the boy's favourite - Pain Aux Raisins:

Delicious baguette with crusty crust and pillowy soft insides:
