Springtime by the Old Danube in Vienna, Austria
Springtime by the Old Danube in Vienna, Austria

Welcome to the “Find Me in Austria” Blog!

If you’re interested in Austrian lifestyle, culture, history and food then you’re in the right place. I’ve started this blog with the vision of sharing what I love as well as what I find strange about the alpine republic.

My name is Victoria Halper and I’m an Austro-Canadian transnational. What does that mean? I was born and raised in Toronto, Canada by my Austrian immigrant parents. I grew up in between two cultures and identify with both = transnational. In 2010, after completing university, I was able to make my dream a reality by moving to Austria.

So why the blog?

Despite having grown up with the Austrian culture from day one, there are still lots of experiences I make here that are new, amazing and sometimes just plain weird. It’s these things and more (recipes anyone?) that I would like to share with you 🙂

I hope that you enjoy what you read and see. Please feel free to comment because I will be reading and responding! I hope to make this an interactive cultural blog about life in Austria for national and international fans alike.

Have fun & bis bald!
