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!



#DWCC2014 Digital Wine Communications Conference: The Brave New #Winelover World

Arriving in Montreux, Switzerland, where this year’s seventh edition of the annual #DWCC14 Digital Wine Communications Conference takes place, I feel both excited and a little intrigued. Have I gathered all my wine tasting notes & digital communications background as a wine travel writer? Do I feel I know enough about wine to make easy conversation? And […]


Burgenland Travel Tales: Meet & Greet the (real) Burgenland!

Aloisia Bischof talks “Heanzisch” with us – a typical, local area dialect from Southern Burgenland. Travelling in the very east of Austria, you will not only be won over by its charming, undulating landscape and mild, Pannonia climate, but also by the charm of the local people. Throughout history, many different peoples have settled here: […]


“Douro Exclusive”: World-Famous Wine & Gourmet Moments in Portugal

Maeve is holding on to dear life (and Richard), as the wine terraces next to her take a deep plunge. She does not dare to look out the car window so as to enjoy the magnificent view out into the Douro valley below. I take her hand, soothing her softly, and we both start laughing. […]

Blogger at the “Buschenschank”: A Wine Autumn Love Story from Austria.

So what is the story to … travel bloggers exploring the wine autumn season in Austria? Last year, I wrote about the magic of the “Gourmet Wine Mile” close to Vienna where we visited as part of the wine autumn festival. Or lovely South Styria, home to many excellent Austrian wine estates … One thing though is for sure. […]

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

A cultural visit to Burgenland: Esterházy Palace & Lake Festival Mörbisch

The Pannonian climate around Lake Neusiedl in Burgenland greets us with a true “Midsummer Night’s Dream”. An evening mood of a kind starts to unfold against the backdrop of the Lake Festival Mörbisch: Glossy white moon in the sky, pastel colours to match, endless views over the wide lake. Northern Burgenland with its powerful red […]


A cultural visit to Southern Burgenland: Top Travel Tips during Summer

The local address “Am Teichwald 1” (literally “Forest Pond Nr. 1”) does sound tempting. It makes me picture the green, gentle nature of southern Burgenland, the grace of a quiet pond, the cool shaded location in the heat of a midsummer’s day. The open air restaurant KOI – “Kulinarik Am Teich” – has a lot 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 […]

Winelover Trip through Portugal: Douro and Serra da Estrela Part IV

The last day of my trip to the Douro and Serra da Estrela regions in Portugal begins with a splendid view over the pool of “Quinta do Crasto.” Here, I can very well imagine to spend a relaxing day out – alas, not this time because I still “have to go” to a wine tasting. […]
