Hey there! Welcome to the American in Vienna blog! My name is Michelle. On June 26, 2014, I left my familiar and comfortable life in Connecticut, USA and officially moved to Vienna to marry my Bosnian-born, Austrian-citizen, Aldin.
How did this even happen? Well, we met through an online community and our international friends suggested we connect and get to know each other! We clicked and throughout the two years of long-distance talk and travel, we decided to get married and live in Europe. To this day, Vienna remains my home ♥
Why did I even start a blog? 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. Therefore, this blog is dedicated to all things Vienna from my perspective – an American living abroad 🙂
In my free time, you can catch me practicing yoga, baking something yummy, or walking in a park with my husband.
Feel free to use the contact form if you have any questions or wish to get in touch with me.

Hi Anastasia! Nice to meet you! 🙂
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.
Wow, what an incredible endeavor. I suggest you contact the City of Vienna office at: https://bit.ly/2IWZ8qc
All the best,
Hello Michelle, since last reading your blog l have started writing one myself. I am an American in Graz. My blog is written to help people discover Europe through the eyes of an artist. Since you do that already (minus the artist part) I thought I would introduce myself. My blog is https://sarahjloecker.blogspot.com/
Thanks so much for sharing this. Will take a look! Best wishes, Michelle.
