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!

Cycling, Hiking & River-Cruising the Saxon Heathland & Burgenland near Leipzig

Taking a “Siebenrad” dinghy-bike along the Saxon river Mulde. Hiking the so-called “Heath-Beaver-Tour”. Those who still believe that the Germans are merely “stiff & serious” are proven wrong here. In the Leipziger Land, in any case, they are quite creative! “Actually, we were just tinkering,” Christine Bretschneider laughs in explaining the so-called “Siebenrad” bike. This […]


#deutschlandaktiv: Travel Tips for the Leipzig Lake District.

“Elena discovers the wildly romantic nature and cultural landscape of the Leipziger Land” … When I first made up my mind about a slogan for my upcoming trip to the city of Leipzig & the Leipzig Lake District, I had no idea how much this expression would actually hit the mark. The landscape here is truly “romantic”, for instance when spending […]

Like, for example, the story of our darling city guide Christoph […]
