"Vienna waits for you"
I´m an Icelander that lives in Vienna, Austria. It´s like two different worlds because when I go on holidays to Iceland I stay with my parents and fall back into the pattern like when I was younger, leave the laundry, cooking and other stuff to my parents. It´s not fair since i am 24 but old habits die hard, plus its nice to be a kid again.
Then i spend my time trying to meet as much of my friends, who never really ask me about my life in vienna. Which is better because where do i begin. A lot can happen in a year. It´s also good because then we dont waste time catching up, we enjoy our time together doing stuff or talking about things that are happening now, not things that are done. If they want to follow what I´ve been up to they can read my facebook, blog or other things. It helps. Like with my dad, since he started a blog, I know more about him and can talk to him more because of it, ask him about things he wrote in his blog.
In Vienna, I take care of everything, I work, pay bills, do my laundry and shop for groceries or in other words, act like a grown up (at least in that perspective :P). I take care of me and my wonderful boyfriend. We have our lives there where we are in charge.
The interesting thing is that I don´t know anything else. This is how it´s been since I´ve moved to Vienna. It´s a good thing really, to spend your holiday in your hometown with your family and friends and stay at hotel mom and dad and then you come back to your normal life in Vienna.
These may be two different worlds but its better because I know my part in each of them ;)
