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!
“Listen here. It is so quiet … absolutely no noise.” My words carry over to my friend & travel companion Björn from Iceland, whose face immediately breaks into a knowing smile. Noticing the absolute absence of noise has us world citizens & urban dwellers almost shriek with delight. Even the sea cradles the coast in a […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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”, […]
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 […]
If you are able to rid yourself of something here at Seewinkel near Lake Neusiedl in Burgenland, then it is this: A feeling for time. “Can we meet later?”, is all we manage to say to our friend Ursula, who lives very near to the spa. The warm waters, the relaxed atmosphere and the friendly staff at the exceptional St. Martins […]
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, […]
“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 […]
