Hi, I’m Michelle. On June 26, 2014 I left the familiar and comfortable of my old life in the states, and officially moved to Vienna to marry my lovable (Bosnian-born Austrian-citizen) Aldin. To this day, Vienna remains my home american in vienna

Why Did I Start Blogging?

I’ve visited so many great places, ate such good food, had insights about myself and the European culture – I HAD to create a blog and share my findings with the world. 

When I find something interesting and recommendable, I can’t keep it in – I have to share it with others – so this blog is dedicated to all things Vienna from my perspective – an American living abroad 🙂

More About Me: I love…

Having cake and coffee in a quiet cafe, exploring new lands, dining out (foodie at heart), drinking Earl grey with milk and honey, and reading a good book ♥
