There is a good thing about watching too much TV during the lockdown: it can trigger you to start thinking about what you really want in your life. Like, the place where you want to live.
Netflix’s Emily in Paris took over a global audience faster than the speed of light. We watched it during the pandemic. According to some research, the younger fans of the show (from 21 to 40) were inspired to follow their dreams, travel more, and move to another country they always dreamed of.
Every detail of this exciting show carries grains of inspiration that can quickly grow with the end of COVID pandemic. But before you decide to move, you should first explore your favorite places.
So, Emily in Paris….Although Emily is the main character here, something overshadowed her – it’s Paris! If you are teased by this show and want to travel to the city of love, you should definitely visit Emily’s favorite places, and we assure you – you’ll want to move there for good.
Jardin du Luxembourg
This park (Jardin) is full of fountains, gardens, and pavilions. The area covers as much as 25 hectares and is located near L’Estrapade Square in the fifth arrondissement. Emily went jogging there almost every morning absorbing its natural beauty. This is one of the most favorite picnic locations for Parisians.
One of the most unique locations in the entire series is the Palais Garnier Opera House, where Emily comes dressed like Audrey Hepburn, firmly determined to persuade a client from the fashion industry to collaborate with her, and leaves in love with ballet and music.
Atelier des Lumières
Emily and her friends visited the digital Van Gogh exhibition in a unique art center, Atelier des Lumieres. His whole life and artistic opus are presented in a video format and include over 200 various photographs followed with a piece of adequate music and light effects.
Jardin du Palais Royal
Her office is located in front of the square de Valios near a majestic Jardin du Palais Royal where she met her best friend Mindy. Jardin du Palais Royal is one of the most popular places for long city walks, and every afternoon you can see there cheerful families with a lot of kids.
