All posts by Bernhard Kabelka

My name is Bernhard (or Bernie for short), and I am 40 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 DeepUnity Insight (formerly IMPAX EE).

Working on vacation?

I don’t really like to work on vacation. Nevertheless, I have to interrupt my vacation for three days of work  – or, more precisely, I will extend my vacation for a few more days after three days of work.

Originally, my vacation should already have ended yesterday. However, there will be a workshop in Kaprun over the next three days, and driving back and forth would have been pointless. Since I do not want to drive the long distance to Vienna after the workshop on Wednesday evening either, I took Thursdays and Fridays off as well. So my vacation is to be continued – if the weather cooperates…

Unfortunately no stroll

I would have liked to go on the "Pinzgauer Spaziergang" today. However, with six to six and a half hours of pure walking time, it sounded too stressful to me, as I only had about seven hours available (due to limited run times of the cablecars). So, I opted for a round trip over some mountains just above this "Pinzgauer Spaziergang" instead – and was not disappointed. Continue reading Unfortunately no stroll

Krimml Waterfalls

I already wanted to visit the Krimml Waterfalls during my trip through Austria last year. However, one and a half hours of driving each way was too much for me. So, I planned my route this year to include a visit. Therefore, on my way from Tyrol to Salzburg, I stopped over in Krimml today for a closer look at the (very impressive) waterfalls.
