Hi there!

I am Amanda from Mexico live. I am an architect and I like to go to Austria to study a master in the University of Applied Arts in Vienna.

Hello!
I am Judith from Los Angeles, I arrived in Austria about 10 days ago, and boy, am I THRILLED to have found expat.com!
This was not a planned move. Out of nowhere, I was presented with the opportunity to live in an old inn on Hallstatt Lake for 3 months, and I just grabbed it (I'm no dummy, lo!!). The way it unfolds is now up to ME, of course.
I know nothing.  Not the language, nor how to get around by public transport, nor even exactly where I am, lol!
I welcome any and all outreached hands with gratitude and friendship.
Namaste for now.
Judith

Hey Judith :)

Yay for joining us here, moving to a new country is always fun and stressful rolled into one. But we are all friends here so should you need help or tips. Please feel to ask away.

You are very lucky to live in that part of the country, very beautiful and less stressful compared to LA.

If you have time, why not write a BLOG with your experiences.

Hello!

I am Danielle and I am currently living in Linz, Austria :)

I've been here for 2 months and living with my boyfriend who is a native to Austria, and I am working as an Au Pair for 3 kids (twins boys age 3 and one older boy age 6)

I would love to meet other Au Pairs in Linz but also other expats in general as it can get quite lonely when you don't speak the language very well.

Peace and love!
Danielle

Hi Danielle,
My name is Liz and like you, I moved here to be with my Austrian boyfriend.  I am also trying to learn German, but find it very difficult as everyone around me only speaks Dialect.  I am also looking to meet some other expats in the area, as I understand it can get very lonely with everyone only speaking German.

Let me know if you'd like to get together sometime.  We could go for a hike or walk or for a coffee, tea, drink or whatever.

Hope to speak to you soon,

Liz

I'm Kim a newly, early retired ER/Trauma Nurse, Bakery Owner and Pastor. I've decided to tour the world in looking for the best place I'd like to settle down, relax and enjoy, volunteering in various activities and the church.

So glad I read your post, I wont be coming until June and July of 2018, I do have an off line translator, so this will help with the dialect, I hope to meet you when I get there,I'll be there in June and July of 2018, I hope I can find many of you when I get there, as I stated with another person, I do have an off line translator on my Ipad, so this will help me somewhat, but would like to meet up with other expats, please remember me for 2018, I have my address and everything my name is Kim, thanks

HI I am Irish just moved to Steyr near Linz , don't currently speak any German interested in meeting up with people!

Hi Liz...

I just joined this forum as I am looking to return to Austria next year after being away from my yearly travels ending in 2014.  This time my wife and I hope to look into moving to Vienna permanently.

As to learning German, Fluenz has an excellent course, which you can purchase.  However, all such courses only teach High German or "Hochedeutsch".  To actually learn the dialect you will have to attend one of the German courses in Vienna.

Hope this helps a little...  :)

Guten tag everyone!

My name is Gift, and I understand that means poison in German :/ I guess I will be having awkward introductions all the time, haha.

I am moving in October to start work in Wien. Looking forward to enjoying the city and meeting folks.

Cheers!

Hi - I used to live south of Durban (Amanzimtoti) for over 10 years, moved beginning of 2003 with my late husband to Austria (he was South African)

Now I am living in Upper Austria (Attersee) the region is called the Salzkammergut - it is the lake district east of Salzburg.

I am trying to meet new friends and help people with information about Austria.

Most of the time I travel all over Europe with my dog - just sleeping in my camper van and hike.
My passion is the outdoors and looking for hikes "of the beaten track".

How do I send a PM message - I can only see the reply option below. I just tried to send a reply to another member and was "blocked again" via the system - I didn't copy and paste - it is very frustrating
