Germany / Poland / Czech Republic / Hungary / Austria / Switzerland / France (Sept. - Nov. 2014)

I started this trip teaching in Germany (where a good portion of my ancestry originates) and saw the youthful liberated energy of Berlin.  I then made my way through three cities in Poland: Gdansk; Warsaw; and Wroclaw.  I spent a week trying to replace all "W" sounds with "V" sounds in order to read anything.  I confirmed my love of Kielbasa and then passed through regal Prague and Budapest before spending time in Vienna.  The air, mountains, and elderflower juice of Innsbruck, Austria won my heart once again.  There is space to MOVE, the city encourages skateboarding (everywhere) and has organic markets.  Win!  I then made my way to Switzerland where I felt so safe I confidently took night walks through narrow streets of Zurich.

Next up was France for the second time this year.  After a few days in Paris, I headed to Strasbourg, the heart of the Alsace region, for a day of workshops and a photo shoot with Haze Kware.  The first picture has been released and was taken in a Petite France, part of Grande île, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  More photos from this shoot to come....
