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!



The Year Of My Life: Travelling Aotearoa New Zealand. Today: Auckland!

The year of my life it is, then. It does feel like it though, looking back. What I have learned, experienced, worked, enjoyed and loved in all these months is really quite astounding. AOTEAROA, the “Land Of The Long White Cloud” as the first people like to call it, is a true force of nature. Tremendously beautiful & seductive […]

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. […]


Garlic, Schnaps, “Love And A Marriage”: Our Wedding Trip to Romania!

This article requires a special introduction. Just to tell you: I have NOT married anyone. Not yet. Who knows. 😉 But let us start from the beginning: Today, my beloved brother and his girlfriend Christine, both ‘real journalists’, share their debut article with you here on my travel blog. Back in the summer of 2013, they […]


“Blog boomerangs” fly, travellers reply: My very own thoughts about the philosophy of travelling

“What kind of (unusual) ability did you ever wish for on any of your trips? Which country would you choose to live? What language would you still like to learn?” Aaaah. I really love this kind of questions, as they serve to stimulate my creative travel spirit. But “blog boomerangs”? To be quite honest with you, […]


Cape Town: A place where happy people live life in a bubble!

Cape Town with its mix of different cultures means pure joy of living. Magnificent landscapes, happy people, good food and fantastic wines: Cape Town is hard to put in a nutshell really, and you cannot fully understand the city without having lived here for a while. Let me share a friend’s comment with you, who came to Cape […]

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

6 months, 12 trips, 24 talented writers and a little fair share of happiness. What we have managed to experience and promote through our writing & feelings may well qualify to be of the extraordinary. Take Terry & Sarah Lee from England for example, who have nibbled off the longest apricot cake in the world and whose travel vine […]


Travelling in Burgenland: The sweet scent of Apples, Vinegar & Wine(Makers)!

“Come into the apple garden“, is written in big, colourful letters across the apple company car of Albert & Vera Leeb. Those two are a really sweet couple, even though “my wife says I should not do the guided tours because .. well, I am just too outspoken, you know, I will always talk controversy no […]


#GansBurgenland: The goose is loose in Burgenland!

Fairy-tale like emotions. If over 1.300 geese are running towards you, cackling like hell, then you have all the right to feel overwhelmed. We were diving deep in our emotions in Southern Burgenland, a region that sees the farming of geese being protected as part of the Austrian “Genussregionen“, or gourmet districts. All these districts follow certain quality criteria for […]


Cycling in the Heilbronn Wine District

Do you know the best thing about an E-Bike? They allow you to cycle up the (wine-terraced) hills while still being able to enjoy the surrounding wine landscape. I arrive at the top of the hill south of the city of Heilbronn without breaking a sweat – a nice feeling alright. Ok, the sportiest among you might say, “riding […]
