Hello There


My name is Micah and I’m thrilled you’ve stopped by my little corner of the internet. I was born and raised in sunny Los Angeles, where I also received my BA in Creative Writing and German. This blog is the space where those passions converge.

I studied abroad in Heidelberg, Germany, my sophomore year and stayed to work as an Au Pair the following summer. Then I spent three months interning at a church in Frankfurt, and after that I worked for a year teaching English at a German school through the Fulbright Scholar program. Now I am in graduate school in Münster. One might say I am slightly obsessed with the country…

I am a writer. a coffee drinker. a mediocre photographer. a soft speaker. a haphazard poet. But most of all I am thrilled you’ve paid my space a visit.

  1. So nice to meet you Micah. I just found your blog and I am loving it. I am a fellow writer about to move to Wales for my undergraduate degree, so I have a lot I could learn from you. I look forward to hearing more about your adventures.

    1. Hello Susanna! Thanks so much for reading 🙂 I’ve never been to Wales but it’s on my (incrediby long) bucket list. I hope your transition goes smoothly!

  2. Hi Michah! I love your blog and you are truly living the dream! Your photos bring back many happy memories of when my sister and I embarked on a 7 country tour of Europe in 12 days! Recall beautiful Heidelberg fondly. I love Europe and hope to return. My mom was born in Ireland and we spent many summer vacas there. I am now the mother of two boys 13 and 15 living in suburban CT. I am so happy my father encouraged us to travel when we were younger so enjoy and don’t look back – you will always remember these days of adventure 🙂

    1. Thanks so much for reading! Wow, seven countries in 12 days, what a whirl wind! I bet that was an amazing experience, especially since you were able to share it with your sister. Heidelberg is such a magical city, it will always hold a special place in my heart. I was able to visit Ireland in March and totally fell in love with the people and beauty I found there. I look forward to reading your blog as well 🙂

  3. I would like to challenge you to coffee-drinking match! Haha.

    I have a cousin who is a German professor and travels to Germany frequently.

    What is it that you love most about German culture?

    1. Oh man, I think I would definitely win! ;p I think one of the aspects I love most about German culture is the work-life balance that is so often lacking in America. When they work, they give their all. But when they relax, they are completely unplugged.

      1. I’m so glad you really liked your family. I know so many au paris, myself included, that unfortunately didn’t have such a great match…but when you do, it’s magic! What was au pairing in Germany like? Do you blog about it? I’m so interested! xo

      2. Yes, I felt really lucky because I know that’s certainly not always the case. It was really challenging but really rewarding. The kids were young and didn’t speak and English, so my German really improved! I blogged about it under the ‘Hildesheim’ section under the ‘Germany’ section of my ‘travels’ tab if you’d like to take a look.

What's on your mind?
