My name is Bernhard (or Bernie for short), and I am 39 years old. I grew up in (and still live in) Vienna, Austria. My greatest passion is travelling. This blog is therefore mainly dedicated to my travelling adventures.
I just love to explore foreign (and, if possible, far away) countries. I have already spent my vacations on six different continents, and have also travelled all around the globe in an eight-months-long RTW trip from September 2008 to May 2009. But also during my regular vacations, I strive to get to know new places all over the world.
At the same time, I really enjoy my everyday life in my home town Vienna. Most of my friends live there, and I like to meet them e.g. for board game nights, going to the theater, or simply for a chat. In summer, I take advantage of Donauinsel for biking and (mainly) inline skating. Finally, every once in a while, I also go hiking at the foothills of the Austrian alps close to Vienna – beautiful scenery cannot only be found abroad, after all!
When I am not roaming the world, I am spending my days as a software developer: After my studies of Technical Mathematics at UT Vienna, I have worked at PROFACTOR, a research company in Steyr (Austria), for three years, focusing on computer simulation and production planning. Since summer 2009, I am employed as a software developer at Dedalus HealthCare (formerly Agfa HealthCare), where I am working on the PACS client IMPAX EE.520 Articles
