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!



Top Ten Instagram Travel Moments in 2014

Awesome “iphoneography”. I just love the aesthetics of my high resolution iPhone5 camera device coupled with the creativity and “filter-full” playground of Instagram. As a travel blogger, Instagram is one of my favourite Social Media apps apart from Facebook, Twitter or Google+. I use it all the time to share those travel moments & photographs I deem […]

Vielen Dank in jedem Fall, liebe Lucia, für diesen schönen Nachmittag mit Dir in Krems!

#DieKremserin & #Creativelena out & about in our own backyard: Exploring lovely Krems!

Inspiring. Authentic. Laid-back. Lucia Täubler’s blog #DieKremserin, a lifestyle blog featuring event tips & happening in both our home town Krems, mirrors what sets her apart from the crowd. I am so glad for having her as our expert “blogger-in-residence” calling upon all local stories to be told about Krems! Finally, I find myself getting support from the likes of […]


Hiking Destination Upper Waldviertel: Highlights of the new Long-Distance Lainsitz Trail.

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 […]

Die Ankunft bei Doris Schreiber sieht in etwa so aus: Gleich wird uns der frisch geschnittene Kräuter- & Blumenkorb unter die Nase gehalten, welche wir später in unserem Suppentopf und auf den Tellern wiederfinden!

Hiking Destination Upper Waldviertel: Culinary-Creative Travel Tips

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 […]


Summer Festival Highlights in Lower Austria

The voice of the young singer “Rosario La Tremendita” fills the stage: Smoky, sublime, “tremendous” and full of fire as the Andalusian Flamenco she sings. While she draws her breath, the equally impressive singer Mohammad Motamedi from Iran responds in his very own Far Eastern way to the fiery flamenco, resulting in a singing duet as I […]


#BloggerPilgern: Our Pilgrimage to Mariazell along Via Sacra in Lower Austria

#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. […]


#BloggerPilgern in Mostviertel: Day 4 along the Via Sacra

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 […]


#BloggerPilgern in Mostviertel: Day 3 along the Via Sacra

“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, […]

#BloggerPilgern in Mostviertel: Day 2 along the Via Sacra

Log book day 2. #BloggerPilgern … still going strong. The fellowship of Tanja, Monika, Oliver, Hubert and I literally manage to go out of our way: After almost 50 kilometres walking, pestered by countless blisters on our feet, we are still happy laughing out loud! The five of us form a union that thanks to this pilgrimage […]


#BloggerPilgern in Mostviertel: Day 1 along the Via Sacra

“The difference between a tourist and a pilgrim is this: A tourist has expectations. Pilgrims accept surprises.” Christa Englinger, who is a “pilgrim guide for beginners“, beams at us. She and her colleague Yvonne Simek, of the Mostviertel Lower Austrian Tourism Board, warmly welcome us to the first stop on our pilgrim journey across the […]
