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!
We laughed. We ate our way through. We got creative! We enjoyed. We connected with nature. Here in the Upper Waldviertel. And now? Now’s the time to tell you all about the actual hiking trails here in this hiking district of the Upper Waldviertel. After all this eating & gourmet-style travelling, we are now face to face with … … hiking along […]
The hiking trail along the Lainsitz river is a brand new long-distance hike in the upper Waldviertel district of Lower Austria. Come to think of a hiking trip there, you might, like me, be tempted to think of pretty forest-clad hills, some nice huts & one or two good places to stay. However, the Waldviertel has far more to offer […]
Finally. Again this year. And indeed, each and EVERY year, the creative mountain destination Altenmarkt-Zauchensee brings together like-minded souls and creative talents as part of the so-called “Natura.Kreativ” – Creative Mountain Travel during the last weeks of August. For the fifth year in a row, Altenmarkt-Zauchensee has proven to be a true “hot spot for creativity” […]
South Tyrol. What images does the name of this destination carry for you? The mighty Dolomites mountains. The sunny ski slopes during winter. The excellent local area wines. People out here in the far north of Italy perceive themselves as a region distinct from the rest of the country: “We are from South Tyrol.” Or, like […]
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 […]
“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 […]
Imagine: a mixture of Tuscany and Wachau. Gently rolling hills, beautiful vineyards, olive groves and orange trees, with a lovely, meandering green river Douro. This area offers the perfect conditions for the production of the famous port wine. In the Douro region, delicacies of all kinds are created. Not only wine lovers get their money’s worth, but […]
#BloggerPilgern. A pilgrimage puts different souls on similar wavelengths. At some stage, the moment has come where everybody is looking for the same thing, feels the same thing, thinks the same thing. I am so tired. What are we eating tonight? Where do we go? How far is it? But also thoughts like: I am so proud of myself. […]
The path to awareness leads us past the building blocks of our soul. Tears, laughter, suffering, strengths, weaknesses, endurance, friendship, guidance, love and understanding. All that we laughed about, on this fourth & last day of our pilgrimage from Hinterbrühl in the Vienna Forests to Mariazell in Styria. All that we swore upon. All that we […]
“I wish you lots of positive energy, God’s blessing as well as peace for admiring the beauty of God’s creation in all its variety … Amen.” As soon as Father Raphael Schütz blesses us pilgrims at Lilienfeld Abbey, the largest medieval abbey of Austria, I start closing my eyes, smiling. Around me, the presence of my friends Tanja, Monika, […]
