About Me

ABOUT US

We are a easy to get along with open-minded german-austrian couple with a great passion for travelling.

Nathalie is a student of law, jewish and middle eastern studies and passionate about languages, especially hebrew and arabic.

Patrick has a background/ PhD in chemistry and has recently founded two software/ data science companies in the accounting and biotech industry (exputec.com, abacus.ac).

Our son Benjamin (2,5 years old) loves singing, dancing, jumping and cars.
Our son Jonathan (7 months) just started crawling and loves to eat and sleep.

We are travelling and living together since we first met in Spain and decided to make Vienna our home base. Although we enjoy living in Vienna with all its cultural activities, we love to travel, learn new languages, try to understand other cultures and meet new people.

We are acitvely hosting and couchsurfing since 2009 and loving it!
