Next stop on my European adventure: Berlin! I’ve been to Germany before (Munich…and I LOVED it!), but I knew that Berlin was a whole different world than Bavaria. I’ve wanted to visit Germany’s largest city for some time now, so it’s hard to believe I’m here already! And I have to say…I’ve only been in the city for a few hours, but I feel very comfortable here. Maybe because the language isn’t a far cry from Dutch and I’ve gotten used to spending so much time in Netherlands or maybe it feels good to be back in a big, bustling city. Either way, I’ve already had a great time visiting the Berlin Wall Memorial and enjoying (cheap!) Syrian food. Tomorrow is jammed back with tourist-y adventures and thrift shop excursions.
I’ll be sure to keep you all posted!

After three different trains (The Netherlands, Belgium, France), I’ve made it to Paris! I’ve walked over nine miles today while exploring the city (in the rain). Tomorrow morning I’ll be up bright and early to head to the Catacombs before visiting the Cimetière du Père-Lachaise (where Oscar Wilde in buried) as well a bike tour of the city.
Until then, à bientôt!

For a long time, I could never justify purchasing a beautiful new digital SLR camera. After all, I wasn’t a photographer. Sure, I have a degree in art and I create a blog that relies so much on imagery. But still, I was no Sartorialist, and I never could be. It was almost if I had convinced myself that there were so many people- bloggers, artists, whoever- being such amazing photographers that there was not room left for an ammeter to try her hand. And that who would bother looking at my work, as rudimentary as it would be, when they could look at a professional’s!?
But the truth it, no professional is having the same experiences that I’m having now: traveling, exploring my new city, finding my personal style, working in fashion, becoming a vegan athlete. And that is reason enough for me to grab a camera and shoot away. So join me on the next step with Mia Prima Casa, as I experiment and dive even deeper into what it means to be who I am, digital SLR and all.
p.s. Explore the streets I’ve been walking and running and driving and riding on for a year now. Pittsburgh is a city of grit and charm, so take a moment to catch a glimpse:
