Emilie S.

Lyon, France

I have been living in Lyon since 2003, but I was born in the countryside in Beaujolais, 50 km from here.

I work today as a professional licensed tour guide. I am 36 years old.

Lyon has always been a part of my life: this is where my parents worked, where I studied 4 years History of art and Tourism and found my vocation. I passed my professional license in 2007 and today guiding is my main activity.

The city opened my eyes and my mind on a larger, more international world, and where everything is possible. The museums of Lyon, its rich history and heritage, but also the city itself with its treasure hidden under our feet, have inspired me humility and respect. The more I got acquainted with these places, the more I thought it would be the privileged theme of my studies.

As I was only a teenager, I had the opportunity to welcome groups from everywhere in the world during music festivals in my town. All of this gave me the idea to become a guide-interpreter.

I have the pleasure to receive, to share, to welcome. The happiness of people I meet during my guided tours gives me satisfaction in my work. I am personally convinced that this job works both ways : by guiding the others, I learn from others. And so my horizon widens as the visitors learn about the way of life here. As they leave Lyon, they take little souvenirs and good memories from our meeting and they let me with a light heart.

In our new world, where all the people are very high connected, very high informed and without any border, humans need more human relationships. A mobile will never replace either the magic of a meeting or the pleasure to share. That is also why I love traveling.

And I hope you too will feel this wonder, this emotion if you visit the region with me, the region which is, according to me, the most beautiful in the world!
