You wouldn't be here if you weren't curious.*

Hallo! Ich bin Elena! Willkommen auf meinem Reiseblog Creativelena.com.
Ich bin die Kreativreisende, und Du offensichtlich neugierig.

*Was ist "Kreativ Reisen"? Antworten auf diese und viele weitere Fragen liefert Dir mein Reisehandbuch "The Creative Traveler's Handbook". Am liebsten reise ich im Rhythmus der Einheimischen und bin dazu bereits ein paar Mal um die Welt. Sechssprachig. Mit viel Charme, Herz und Hirn. Dies hat mich sowohl ruhig als auch rastlos gestimmt: In der Fähigkeit, inspirierende Geschichten über außergewöhnliche Menschen und Regionen zu erzählen, liegt mein größtes Lebensglück. Viel Vergnügen & Inspiration beim Stöbern durch meine Reisegeschichten!


Reisevortrag Südamerika Elena Paschinger

A year ago to the day, I went for a trip round South America. Curious? Come & join my travel photo exhibition!

There is a remedy to the travel bug. Let me tell you (and convince myself!) about it! Having Spanish lunch, followed by New Zealand carrot cake, talking about summer travel plans with the family. Sounds good, right? But South America … I guess there is no cure for wanting to go there. Again and again. […]


“Blog boomerangs” fly, travellers reply: My very own thoughts about the philosophy of travelling

“What kind of (unusual) ability did you ever wish for on any of your trips? Which country would you choose to live? What language would you still like to learn?” Aaaah. I really love this kind of questions, as they serve to stimulate my creative travel spirit. But “blog boomerangs”? To be quite honest with you, […]


Travel Highlights 2013: From A like Andalucia to Z like Zollverein

Travelling and immersing oneself in foreign cultures: A daunting thought to some, while others consider it second nature. Being of the latter, I personally find it very hard to understand that some people plan their annual holiday trip according to a random price in a magazine. “The all-inclusive deal to Spain is € 150,- less than the […]


Travel Video Highlights: Tango & Trekking in South America

A few days ago, I returned from 50°C Atacama desert in Chile into my homely home town of Austria (at about -5°C). Crazy, to say the least! Apart from having to get used to the temperature & season change, I am missing two nights’ of sleep – left anywhere between partying in Santiago de Chile […]


Simply. Buenos Aires.

Getting up late. Drinking strong coffee for breakfast. Going out, drifting around the city. Buenos Aires is loud, hot, dirty and above all: Fascinating. Full of “orgullo” (pride) & “pasión“. And we haven’t even danced the Tango yet … Here is my photo essay of an easy day of letting go in Buenos Aires. Enjoy talking a […]


Cooking Buenos Aires Empanadas with “Teresita La Bella”

Wine & champagne keep topping up, hummingbirds circle nearby, sweet smells, sizzle & laughter fill the air: Cooking classes really are some of my favourite creative travel activities. Not only because of the fun, interactive elements such classes provide, but also because of the real connection with locals (and other visitors) you make.   Living Life […]


Dancing the Tango in Buenos Aires …

Well. I guess this is what you’ve been waiting for you. At least that’s what we hope. After all the “pain” we’ve been through 😀 Markus and I are now proud to show our first and very official Tango Dancing Video that we recorded during a private Tango Tour through the so-called “Milongas” (Tango bars) of Buenos Aires. “Sometimes […]


Buenos Aires: On Yer Bike & Community Visit of La Boca

“In La Boca, you will find one single lane worth visiting, El Caminito, which is THE most-visited tourist trail in the whole of Buenos Aires …” Do statements like these also make you shiver? Well, here is one good tip on how to avoid the typical, standard tourist experience: Take a tour “La Boca Beyond Caminito” […]


Buenos Aires: Cicerones Greeter Tour & Visit of San Telmo

We have only been in Buenos Aires for 24 hours. And yet, we have already had the chance to experience one of its “must-see” attractions: A Buenos Aires Greeter Tour (“Cicerones, un amigo en Buenos Aires“). After a crazy journey to our summerly destination on the other side of the world, an extended breakfast on the […]
