A big hello and welcome to my blog! Allow me first to introduce myself: You can call me Deb – I’m a happy-go-lucky gal from Australia who has somehow stumbled into life in a small Austrian town.

You could say I followed my heart here.

It’s been an adventurous, highly enjoyable and at times challenging transition from a single, suburban, Melbourne girl to a married, German-speaking Frau,

I update my blog weekly with a mish-mash of content, from day-to-day observations on life in a foreign country with a foreign language, to travel adventures and the occasional creative writing piece.

I hope you enjoy my practical-minded tips and hints, tongue-in-cheek musings on the Austria way of life and tales of transition, tantrums and travel.

I encourage you to step into the blue beyond.

    Hey Deb,
    I’ve been following your blog for a while and love it. I’m from Austria (might not even live tooo far away from you by the sounds of it) and have just come back from living in Australia for the last 4 years. Followed my heart there too at the time 🙂

    Hit me up if you feel like chatting about Australia or Austria or being away from family/friends. I know the struggle 😉

      Hey thanks for the feedback! I just checked out your blog – looks awesome and when I get some time to struggle through some German reading I’m looking forward to reading about your adventures in Australia from an Austrian’s perspective. 🙂
