    My name is Martin and I am from Vienna - Austria.
    You know Mozart, Viennese Waltz, Emperor Franz Joseph and Sissi, Spanish Riding School :razz: (all this old nonsense * lol *)

    I read here with already long because I want to improve my English and I think that one learns best when one reads the current discussions.

    We (my wife and I) were already a few times in the United States - to be precise in Florida (4 times), New York and Chicago. We love your country.

    Now I thought it is time to time to log on and tell her that since a great forum.
    I apologize if my English does not hurt you in the eyes but I am still learning.

    Best regards from Vienna
    Martin

    I'm new here, too, so I make an odd presence for the welcoming party.

    I'm just posting because I love Vienna. There's nothing nonsense about Vienna, quite the contrary. I went with some well traveled people two months ago, and we all agreed it was the most beautiful city in the world: 7 out of 7. Unanimous.

    I wasnt there long enough to get a reliable sense of the people, but Viennese seemed nice enough. I certainly did not feel uncomfortable as an American (except maybe some inferiority complex about my fashion!)

    Welcome, Fuzzy Vienna

    Yes, I've been to your enchanting country, walked through Mozart's boyhood home in Salzburg, seen those lovely whitish-gray horses, Lippizans, aren't they? I loved the narrow walking streets in Salzburg and also the fabulous Mirabell palace bursting in bloom...

    Glad you're here at USMB, and hope you have a wonderful time here.

    Oh, and Martin, my maiden name is Martin. :)

    That's nice, the Vienna is the most beautiful city in the world;-)
    And yes you are right.
    Vienna is a wonderful city - and Austria a beautiful country.

    But every time we are in the U.S. and people ask us where we come from we always hear:

    Mozart, Viennese waltz, Lipizaner (white horse), etc.

    The funny thing is that I live here and that everything is normal for me this are the everglates, Grand Canyon, etc. something special for me ...

    And Mozart was born in Salzburg, but then lived in Vienna;-)

    If you ever come to Vienna, let me know I show you a different Vienna off the tourist hotspots!

    Welcome I used to be an Arnold Schwarzenegger fan but not so much anymore. He should have stayed out of politics...and away from ugly women.:confused:
