About us

We are Barbara and Mike, a happily married couple originally from Vienna, Austria. We have been married for 5 years, and have both reached the ripe old age of 30! Since August 2004 we have been living and working here in Perth, Western Australia.

Our Australian adventure started in March 2004, when Barbara’s brother, Markus, visited us in Austria. He had been living in Perth for more than 10 years, and made us an exciting offer to live and work with his IT company there. We jumped at the chance to experience life in Australia, and began planning immediately.

The preparation time was short and intensive - we had to quit our jobs, rent our apartment, sell our car and, of course, host a number of farewell parties. And then we landed on 23 August 2004 in Perth …and it was totally different to what we expected..

The information provided on NotSoHot.at reflects our personal opinions and is based solely on our own experiences here in Perth. We don’t claim that this info is generally valid and correct.
