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 ♥

  1. Michelle,
    My wife and I recently visited Vienna to see if we could locate the grave of my great grandfather. We had found a paper with the information on his location amid some very old papers left by my grandfather. The old Jewish section in the Central Cemetery is in very sad shape but through much effort, we were able to locate it. It was very emotional.

    After I returned home to Philadelphia, it occurred to me that I would like to know if there was any way I could take care of it into the future. But I forgot to ask them and there is no contact information on the cemetery site. Is there any way you can help?

    Thank you very much.
