Well, I have a somewhat interesting story here...
We were doing a "Business Project" at school, which turned out to be a feasibility study for a site under the working title "International Business Traveller's Survival Kit"....
It was supposed to be a place for people coming to Vienna (to further be developed for other cities as well) for a few months on business, supplying them information on everything, from housing to entartainment, including hairdressers, medical help, dry-cleaning... well, you get the picture.
Anyway, the *fake* marketing department did a report, which included benchmarking and mentioned this site...
This awoke my curiosity - and here I am... :-) loving this first day... :grin:

That is an interesting story - you can submit the royalty fee directly to Party Marty !

Hi everyone!

I have been in Vienna for several months now and met some of the VirtualVienna site. Then Silvia told me about you guys, and she said that you are younger :) So, are you?

Hi IT! :-)

I am not, but overall it is a younger crowd here, and there are a few more social events going on than on the Virtual Vienna site.

Come along to the Meet&Greet or the GamesNight, we'll be the quiet crowd chatting about embroidery and hemeroids :wink: Note, use the Gallery functionality to put some names to faces.

We're younger or younger at heart!

Re: how I found this site - through Punk and Emmi back in the early days of Pointers. I was on VV before it went paying, as Beardsley, but then my posts got lost with a server problem and never went back.

Vienna is like an Ikea sofa - you know you should upgrade, but why bother when it is this comfortable.

Hey all,
My name is Tanya and I am the newest Newbie. I moved to Vienna last summer so i am over the half year hurdle now.
Still, social life is not so rocking and I haven't made any other friends apart from some colleagues at work. A friend in another part of the world told me about the expats.com connection so i googled you and here I am :-) Looking forward to meet you!

Hi We come as a pair Richard and Grace. We are both expats for over 30 years now but not sure what the age preference is here but hey what the heck we are both very young at heart. Richard is working for an Austrian company head office in Vienna but has worked for them in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where we were both very heavily involved in the Expat community. Not sure how long we will be here for this trip but we would like to get involved in non working social activities so did a Google and found you guys. Looking forward to reading posts. 8)

I found Vienna ex-Pats during my hunt for a Massage Therapist. I'm a Massage Therapist and I'm looking for someone to trade bodywork with. I have no money for regular massage. I really need to keep up my skills and working with another Therapist would really fit my needs.
Meanwhile, this place is really cool and I am so glad to finds some Yanks to chat it up with.
So, PartyMarty(Admin) if You can guide me to the proper platz for me to post my blah, blah, I'm all eyes. If this is OK right here then I'll just let this post ride. Thank You Vienna Ex-Pats for your everything and the stuff that makes other stuff work. Ourfeetarethesame, Thom

I don't remember exactly but it was a dull day at work or at home office and I googled sth about expats and was directed to the "funny" posts (random links and pictures) (?)
It wasn't what I was looking for at all but it was entertaining, so I stayed.
