First of all - I am glad you found my homepage. Welcome!
My name is Johanna Steigenberger, I'm 36 years old and for as long as I can remember, what I'm most enthusiastic about has been "the wide world": its geographical areas, its societies with their cultural peculiarities, their history and development.
My two great passions are therefore languages and traveling. When you can talk to people in other parts of the world, understand their news, their literature, and maybe even their jokes, that opens up a whole new perspective.
Still, I feel very connected to my home: I was born and raised in Lower Austria close to beautiful Vienna. For my university studies I went to Graz, Austria's second biggest city. This is where I have been living for the past 18 years.
In my job I'm trying to combine all these interests: Since graduating in 2013, I have been working as a freelance interpreter and translator, as a state-certified city guide for Graz and Vienna and as a tour guide throughout Europe, .
