Vienna is not just a historical "must-see" when travelling across Europe, but also got voted "most livable city" for the 10th time in a row. The most recent Mercer Studies included expatriates from all over the world to share their impressions and opinions. Even the well known British paper "The Economist" put Vienna on top of the list in 2018 - which was a first for a European city. 

Moving to a foreign place that has a culture that is different from yours is going to be exciting and challenging at the same time. Once you have touched down in Vienna, you will be flooded with new impressions that can easily give you a cultural shock at first.

Ours began as the classic ex-pat story in 2012. Darling husband got an overseas post; I went from Working Spouse to Trailing Spouse. The children started planning where to spend their Fall Break, Winter Break, Ski Break, and Spring Break from the American School. Now, one of the children is about to graduate from Uni in America; and the younger one calls Vienna, Home. As for the Foxhound, to whom we promised a dog-friendly life after a 9 hour flight in a plastic crate (and made good on those promises), he has zero plans to return to the U.S. So here we are.

How Vienna Stole My Heart and Other Stories

3 years ago

My blog is dedicated to my love affair with Austria and the region that was once referred to as the Austro-Hungarian Empire. It deals with the everyday moments that touch my heart. It chronicles the memories that time has created and the stories that have unfolded along the path of my life. This is my self-indulgent platform, a place for me to connect with other like-minded individuals, a vehicle to enable me to touch people's hearts near and far by sharing my romantic journey.
