Welcome to American in Vienna! I’m Michelle.

I’m from Connecticut, USA, but am currently living in the beautiful city of Vienna, Austria.

How did I end up here?

My husband Aldin got a job in Austria’s capital, and so I decided to leave the familiar and comfortable and step into a new life in this European city.

Why Did I Start Blogging?

During my first year here I made to sure to explore and discover as much as I could in Vienna. I encountered so many great things, ate so much good food, realized things about myself and culture I decided to start a blog and share with the world my findings.

What Else Happened…

I created and built Women of Vienna for the first 2 years of my life in this city — it’s an English-speaking resource and community for international and local women living in Vienna and the surrounding areas. 

More About Me

My passions are travel, food and photography. I especially enjoy going out to brunch, biking in the city with my husband, and attending the many events that happen in Vienna. I also work at a Montessori kindergarten as a Teacher’s Assistant and love it!
