My name is Ekant and I am from Nepal ,currently living in a beautiful city of Pokhara.
I have been living here for about six years working as a therapeutic healer .I have been trained in shiatsu,  ayurvedic yoga massage , reiki and crystal healing . I have  also been teaching yoga and OSHO active meditation to beginners. Even though I love it here in pokhara I feel that it's time to move on and  start a new
adventure , therefore following my inner voice I have decided to go and work in Austria, and preferably in Graz. I have been living near the mountains and I have heard that Austria also have beautiful mountains ,another reason would be to be with my beloved who lives near by. So I  really want to move to Austria but I have no idea how. Accept for my girlfriend I don't know anybody there. If somebody can help me out to find a job there I would appreciate it very much . Thanks.

Hi, my name is Marko, I am from Croatia, and coming to Austria in a month. Very excited about the relocation and hope we (my family and I) will have good time here  :)

Make a start in learning German now, and get to practice with your partner if you talk to her on the phone or other devices.

I'm working on that already, thanks though  :)

You have you us a bit more information. Do you want come on holiday, study, work?

Hi I'm Ashley I live in the United States I want to move to Austria and experience it and get a fresh start on life.

Hey guys its a pleasure to meet you, thanks for having a thread new joiners like myself can take their first step into the Expat.com.

I'm Peter from London, UK. Moving over to Vienna at the end of the month so am furiously learning my German. My girlfriend is from Vienna and has been living over here in England for the past 5 years so now its my time to embrace her homeland and embed myself into Austria. We will be looking for a place where we can settle down and eventually start a family so will stay with her parents whilst we view apartments. In terms of jobs, as a graphic designer i'm really hoping to work remotely from my new home until my german is up to scratch. Then it will be easier to find a more permanent role. I've found it very hard to find "english speaking" designer roles, and it seems as soon as Viennese companies find out I can't speak German i'm no longer a suitable candidate. I'm bringing my car to Vienna so will need to quickly learn how to drive on the right hand side of the road in a right hand drive car :D. I'm also looking to bring over my motorbike at some point and enjoy the incredible Austrian roads i've been hearing about.

Thanks in advance for any tips and advice

Hey everyone! I just moved to Austria (Linz) a week ago to work here but I totally fell in love with the city and I hope to sray here permanently. I already got a job but now I need to find a place to live. Any ideas for cheap rent? Any of you looking for a flat-mate? Hahah :) I'm fun, I love music (I playbassguitar and guitar), I love spending time with friends. I'd love to make as many friends here as possible! So far I prefer to speak English but I'm getting better at german day by day :)

Don't bother bring the car over, might as well sell it in the UK and buy a car in Austria. As for Vienna you don't really need a car unless you traveling a lot in the middle of no where.

Hey thanks for your reply Simon, yes selling the car whilst still here in the UK would have been ideal, however i'm bringing over my pet chameleon which otherwise would have had to be privately couriered over by plane for over a grand. The price for transporting a reptile by plane is insane, so me and my little lizard friend along with quite a lot of our belongings will be having a mini road trip and once in Vienna I think we can re-evaluate the situation regarding the car. I totally agree with you about the Viennese transport system. I've been to Vienna twice now and love the commuting ease whether you are on a bus, tram, train or underground. My girlfriend is expecting though and so I have a little mini me to look forward to in the not so distant future, so whether or not a car will make things easier will be the deciding factor :)

Hi all ☺
I'm moving to Innsbruck in a few weeks from Wexford in Ireland, I'm making the move on my own and will be working in a private residence  so no work colleagues! Would love to hear from others living in the area
Thanks

Hello everyone,

My name is Ramon and I am planning on moving to Vienna this Fall for an upcoming graduate program in Global Studies. I have wanted to visit Vienna since the 8th grade and finally had my dream come true Junior year of college. However, after graduating I still felt the need to go back and continue to work on a thesis that I began while doing some archival research in the Austrian State Archives. I hope the graduate program will solidify my understanding of how national politics, foreign businesses, and local culture all have work together to give us the world we live in now. It is a 2 year program, but for now my first year will take place in Vienna. I am looking for live-in Au Pair opportunities, live-in tutoring possibilities, or live-in personal assistant options. Vienna is as pricey as it is beautiful :) And with a only a student budget at my disposal, I'm hoping to catch some leads that could help my return to Austria, and make my second visit just as memorable my first! Many thanks!

Hi Manuel,

Je suis française et je viens tout juste d'arriver à Vienne, où je reste 2 mois pour un stage. Je ne connais absolument personne, et les gens que je croise au foyer dans lequel je suis logée n'ont plus trop envie de jouer les touristes et ont leur vie de déjà bien chargée. Bref, ça te dit que l'on se rencontre une fois arrivé, pour faire les touristes (avec ton compagnon aussi bien sûr si tu veux).

Bisous

Hy,

Hello wonderful people,

I'm Volina, a 20-something, blogger, student, editor, translator and human being from Romania, soon-to-be an expat in the capital of Austria (I can still afford to say that, since I'm moving there next week to start my Master's programme in Conference Interpreting).

I've been blogging for some time in my mother tongue, but last year, after traveling, studying and spending a while abroad, I decided to take this blogging thing to a new level and start writing in English. This happens on volina-serban.com/. It's still not a true to word Expat.com, but it's going to after I flesh it out with episodes of my experience in Vienna.

I'm a languages aficionada and I take great pleasure in learning new languages and communicating with people from all over the world.

I'm glad to be part of this wonderful community I came across years ago when I discovered that my biggest wish is to live abroad. I've read tens, maybe hundreds of blogs listed here, almost living in my mind the lifestyle described so vividly by their authors.

I'm looking forward to getting to know and meeting as many as possible of you!

Have a nice day and a well-deserved great weekend!

Hi!  I've just moved to Vienna with my partner to do some research.  I'm from the US by way of France, Italy and England.  I'd love to keep practicing my French (while learning German, ahh scary), if anyone wants to jump between French, English and German with me.  I'm thinking cocktails/beer/wine may be necessary!  :)

Hi,
When are you planning on moving?
I just moved back to Vienna, austria after being in the U.S. for 4 years. Let me know if you need help with anything.

Hi everyone,
My name is Daniela and I recently came back to Vienna after being in the U.S. for about 4 years to study. Prior to that I have lived there for another 2 yrs.
I am an austrian citizen and originally from this area. However, after being around so many international students at my university and living abroad myself, I want to keep hanging out with people that have experienced smiler situations. I would enjoy to keep talking English face-to-face every now and then and would also help you to learn German if you want. If you want to meet up sometime for a drink or do something else, please let me know.

Let me know if I can help. I'm living in Austria.
