Going through some old pictures brought back fond memories of my flash trip to Milan. Emilie, my friend photographer had planned to just drop our luggage at the hotel on arrival and set off immediately to explore the city (read the full diary: here). So I got myself ready with a practical and comfortable gear. Expecting cool to mild temperatures, I put a light cotton turtleneck top, denim mom jeans, leather biker jacket and my go-everywhere Adidas Superstar sneakers. My Freitag “survival” tote bag contained all my travel essentials. So, never throw away your old pictures –they are all you need to trigger magical flashbacks such as these.
