2016 Reflection

Everytime I think about TriVienna, I think of an abandoned website. After all, it has been dormant for two years. More recently, and mainly out of curiosity and appreciation for some of the knowledge they left behind, I was successful in meeting the original creators over the internet. They helped me gain access, and I began publishing BLOG Posts. But after my last post on August 29th, my concern was that TriVienna had become a BLOG by Ken due to a lack of willing contributors. Furthermore, TriVienna is crumbling due to an increasing number of obsolete links to what was useful information, but now go nowhere.

Amazingly, TriVienna is still being looked at by an enormous number of visitors (42,556 so far just this year).  See chart below.

And the visitors come mainly from Austria and the U.S.

As we approach a new year, I sincerely hope that you will consider volunteering your precious time in helping TriVienna continue its mission of sharing useful information with those expats moving to or now living in Vienna.

3 City Wave

My wife and soulmate told me about 3 City Wave during a pleasant walk around town. We stopped by to take a look and to photograph. What a pleasant surprise.

It’s a swimming pool with a built in wave that you can surf on. When we were there they had open surfing, but they also give lessons and rent surfboards and wetsuits. Best of all, spectating is free.

The web page is: 3CityWave

They will close for the winter on September 30, 2016, and I hope they come back next summer. The Austrian Championships in Riversurfing “Stationary Wave Riding” event starts September 16-17, 2016. It may be crowded, but it will be a chance to see the best compete.

BADEN and the Vienna Woods or just take a Bath

Taking the family out on a day hike in the Vienna Woods is a great way to get out of the house for a day.

The wide paths make it easy to avoid stares if you are pushing a stroller. Longer and steeper paths can also be found for those who like to hike.

Another attraction is to stroll around the quaint city.

Day trip to Kahlenberg

Waldseil Park

Waldseil Park in Kahlenberg is a great place for a family day trip. It’s almost as adventurous as Zip Lining, but well organized, and quite safe.

They have a English language website for the latest information: http://www.waldseilpark-kahlenberg.at/en/
