Salut from Paris!

Are you researching and planning a trip to Paris? Or are you thinking of traveling to Paris and need some more info? Maybe it’s your first time in France (or Europe even) and you are wondering what to expect?  Look no further, I’ve got you covered!

I am Lena, the human behind Salut from Paris. It’s been more than 13 years since I moved from Germany to France, and slowly but surely Paris became my home. If you like, you can read more about me and my journey here.

Being a traveler myself – my family took a round the world trip in 2018 and I organised it – I know how to plan a trip, but I also know how unsettling travel planning can be.

I am here to help you out and support you through your Paris trip planning.

The mission of Salut from Paris is to be your friend in Paris. Pick my brain, use my Paris insider knowledge and my travel experience to plan the trip of your dreams!
