Series: Culture Shock!

Austria! You’ve just found out that you are moving to Austria. Beautiful images pass through your mind of Baroque churches, castles and classical music, or maybe you think of heading directly to the Alps for a bit of skiing. Everyone you know is envious and you are excited at the prospect. Then it suddenly hits you that this is not a two-week vacation, but the next few years of your life! Thoughts turn to what it will be like to actually live in Austria and whether you will like it.

Relax. It will not be that difficult, and if you keep an open mind and welcome new experiences, you will find yourself crying when the time comes for you to leave. Austria is a lovely country that is full of possibilities. After you learn what is expected of you and become well versed in the local etiquette and customs, you will do just fine. The main problem with being an expatriate is that you don’t always know why people do what they do, and in turn, you are uncertain as to what you should do. You don’t want to appear rude or do something embarrassing, but it happens to just about every new arrival. This book will help you understand the little things as well as the major points about Austrian society so that you can start off on the right foot.
