Welcome to American in Vienna!

I’m Michelle. I grew up in Connecticut, USA, but am currently living in the beautiful city of Vienna, Austria since June 2014.

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.

More About Me…

I created Women of Vienna — an English-speaking Facebook community and resource for international and local women living in Vienna and the surrounding areas. I built the community with a team of women from January 2015 – 2017 and to this day WoV continues to connect, support and inspire thousands of women.

A few things I love to do: Drinking a good cup of cappuccino, getting out of the city to be more in nature, yoga, and dining out.
