Five years ago, I started playing around with the idea of creating a website dedicated to all things Paris. At the time, though, I didn’t have a clue what I wanted that website to be. It was only during one of my extended stays in Paris—at a private party—that it all came together. I wanted this website to be like a grand salon in old Paris—a place where people came together and shared insider information. And thus was born Parisien Salon.
The website went live in June 2009 and, in the months since, we’ve found some incredible contributors for the site—people like Richard Nahem, Olivier Magny, Zeva Bellel, Susan Barbour, La Mom and the women at Haven in Paris. Because of these people, Parisien Salon became a resource for inside information about Paris. But we always wanted Parisien Salon to be even bigger. To offer more. And now it does.
Here’s what you’ll now be able to do on ParisienSalon.com:
To create a suitcase, click on REGISTER on the top nav bar and create your user profile. Once you’ve logged in, just click on the MySuitcase icon on any detailed listing or article. Any time you’re logged in, you’ll be able to click on MySuitcase to see everything you’ve saved.
There will be even more added functionality coming to make planning your trip and extending your Paris experience even easier. And if there’s a shop, restaurant, point of interest or activity you’d like to suggest, feel free to let us know. In the meantime, enjoy the new and improved Parisien Salon.
