Hello! I’m Mia, and I live in the beautiful Austrian region of Styria, near the city of Graz.

I was born in the Philippines, raised in New Jersey, and settled in New York. That is, until I met a charming guy with a German accent while hiking in Spain. After a few years and lots of frequent flyer miles, we married and decided to build our home in his country. I’ve been embracing life in the Austrian countryside since March 2014.

Language is my passion and teaching is my profession. My sweet spot is at the intersection of food, travel, and discovery with a bit of fitness to balance it out.

From this perspective, I blog about life since relocating to Austria, how new experiences cast light on old ones, and how they color my evolving notion of home.
