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. […]


“Blogger Relations” in Austria: Geniesserzimmer, Genusshauptstadt & Gourmet Adventures 2013

The beautiful “white village” of Vejer De La Frontera sits high atop a hill overlooking the surrounding Andalusian landscape in the province of Cádiz. If you look closely, you can even see the old Roman ruins in Bolonia bay at the horizon. Spain really excels itself once more here, as we could already confirm travelling to the city of Cádiz and exploring […]


Wonderful World Heritage: Emotions from my trip through Germany

Creative Tourism Development in the Ardennes: Working Across Belgium, France & Luxemburg

Work & pleasure do not mix. Or do they? I actually find they almost always do: Perhaps this happens when you do the right thing. Having arrived in the Ardennes Luxembourgeoises, where my creative & committed friend Laurie Buchet is working as tourism development project manager, we always mix friendship & hard work. We like […]
