I don’t want to say anything about the story line of this popular Netflix show. Because I was entirely hooked to the beautiful Paris locations, Emily’s extravagant fashion statements and the Parisian lifestyle during season two. Besides, it literally transports you into the iconic locations of the French capital such as dazzling Eifel Tower.
Although, Emily in Paris season one premiered in 2020 proved as a massive distraction from the Covid-19 pandemic for many people, season two stood out totally. I am sure you will want to grab your beret and take Emily-inspired Paris tour after watching this glamourous Netflix show like myself.

The harsh truth is that cemeteries are often left neglected, which makes death a horrible and uncomfortable thing. In my opinion, the fear of death is what makes a man to die even before the actual time. I think we should live to the fullest while we are alive because death is the ultimate reality of life. But it is not the case in Paris because cemeteries in Paris are incredibly beautiful and fully alive. Therefore, Pere Lachaise is not just a place to mourn or reflect but its an interesting tourist attraction for many visitors.
