About me

Vienna – it’s now or never – thus goes the strapline to the Vienna tourist board campaign. Well it’s now or never for me too – not just for a holiday but to spend two years ‘doing the knowledge’ to pass the exam to become a ‘Stadliche gepruefte Fremdenfuehrerin'[State-registered Tourist Guide, the Austrian equivalent of the Blue Badge guide]. It may be the craziest thing I have ever done – a seriously mind-boggling course in the devil’s own language – but I love this city and I have had a ‘thing’ about Austria since my first visit in December 1988.  […. three years later..]  I set about the training  course with the passion of the converted and devoted every breathing minute to learning as much as I could.  My dedication was rewarded with a full pass first time around.   And now, gentle reader I am available to show you round my incredible city 🙂
