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 […]

Top of The (Mountain) World: Top Instagrams from Hochkar Lower Austrian Ski Resort

Before we talk about what it feels like to be on “top of the world”, I would like to start by asking you a question. Why is it that we travel – even if it is only for a short and wildly romantic weekend getaway to the mountains at Hochkar in Lower Austria? I think I already know the answer to […]


NOW is always the best time to do anything. Let me take you skiing in Mostviertel then!

Do you know the feeling of perfectly exceeded expectations? Wonderful, isn’t it? Think back of when you had this perfect picture in mind, of how something was going to be. And then found out, that you had to paint it all over again with what you actually saw. This happens – a lot, I find […]

Stuhleck Ski Resort: Austrian Snow & French Chansons

Here is the story: Many times before travelling, you already have in mind what you are going to see. Do. Live. And experience. You might even think that you “know it all” – a classic one. Back here in my hood, Lower Austria, I pride myself on thinking I know every little ski resort by heart, having visited […]

Die tapferen Wintersportlerinnen: Danke für die schöne Zeit bei Dir, liebe Bianca!

#onlyinibk: Looking for Powder Snow & Party in Innsbruck

You do have to look for it in this spring-like winter: Snow. On our first trip to Tyrol this year, it had not quite arrived yet, whereas this time, it was almost set to leave again in the 13°C sunshine we enjoyed. I am talking 13th of February here – right in the “middle of winter”, […]

Auf geht's: Ich mache gleich mal mein erstes "Nasenspitzenfoto" - mehr mag bei Wind & Wetter einfach nicht herausschauen. Echte Schifahrerherzen erfreuen sich jedoch auch an Schneefall: PULVERSCHNEE-Alarm :D

Counting Snowflakes at Hochkar Ski Resort: Winter Magic in Lower Austria

Dear readers. What a day !!! Snow flakes are dancing in front of my window. It has gone quiet around us. Winter is here at last! And so much snow, would you believe it? At least we didn’t when we decided, quite spontaneously, to go on a ski trip to Hochkar ski resort with my family right […]

Bei der Betriebsbesichtigung nimmt uns Herbert Plangger mit in das Herzstück seines Betriebes: Die "heiligen Hallen" der hier lagernden Bio-Käselaiber.

Travel Tales from Tyrol: “Classic Skating & Cheese Making!”

Dear readers, today my question for you is this: What does “classic” mean in Tyrol or in combination with snow & skiing? To be quite honest with you, I haven’t had a clue myself before travelling to Kaiserwinkl in Tyrol this time. Doing sports in the fresh winter air might sound like music to my ears, […]


Travel Tales from Tyrol: “Kössen and Kaiserwinkl are the new Kitzbühl!”

“Will you help me do it?!” Peter Fahringer, working at the paragliding & kiting club in Kaiserwinkl, Tyrol, is full of passion for his job. Just ahead of my tandem paraglide, we find we also share a common one: The power of connecting people through blogs, online communities & Social Media. “Kössen is a perfect winter resort. People […]


Winter Wonderland at Hochkönig Ski Resort in Salzburg

Erhard Plosky is what you call a friendly giant. “I weigh over 110 kilograms”, he laughs looking into our incredulous faces only lit by the dim light of the torch he is carrying. We are standing inside a snow-covered mountain forest in Mühlbach am Hochkönig in Salzburg, it is about 10 p.m. and we read animal tracks in […]


Gourmet, Wine & Cofffee Delights in Burgenland

The Burgenland, Austria’s easternmost district, really has it all. Ever since we came to appreciate exciting creative workshops such as a Motorsägenschnitzkurs (wood carving using chainsaws), groovy Beatboxing or painting with coffee & chocolate, we were thinking: What else might this province and its people have in stall for us? Where is the tastiest, most romantic or perhaps “seductive” […]
