About Me


preparing to become parents in May!


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 is a PhD student of biochemical engineering. He enjoys feeding and playing with microorganisms and all the science around it. Next to bacteria he likes books, european and international cinema.
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.


so much to see, so much to do....
