Oh My Vienna

 

My name is Michelle.

I moved to Vienna in July, 2016 because a drag queen I love (Conchita Wurst) calls the city home.

And honestly when I first arrived I didn’t like Vienna at all, and I couldn’t even tell you why.

Except that the people are grumpy, the smiles are few (at least at first until you figure out how to get them) and the weather is not the best in the world.

But then the city, oh the city, it grows on you.

The stunning architecture (and not just here and there but almost every building). The traditional coffee houses and the beautifully and uniquely designed modern ones. The parks, the historical buildings, the trams, the streets you can walk and walk and walk in and there is something interesting on every block.

The MuseumsQuartier, Hofburg Palace, the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Mariahilfer Strasse, Graben, the Rathaus, Yppenplatz and on and on and on.

Vienna is a magical city that, to me, becomes even more magical every day.

Oh My Vienna. You really are a wonder.
