Working-Travelling Mum: One year on the road with #LittleLiam
Our son Liam turns one today. One incredible year, likely as intense (or even more so) than many of my wild travel years before his birth. And what an exciting road it has been! So much that we’ve learned from and through him. For one, it’s that clichés (don’t) hold true. Some do, yes. But […]
Travelling with Baby Liam: What’s it really like to be on the road for one month.
I am full of what the Portuguese people call “saudades” right now. Saudades, a term deemed to describe the indescribable: A feeling of nostalgia, melancholy, a feeling of far-away-ness. The way it is, pictures like these won’t become reality quite so soon again, as it still was the case earlier this year, in January 2020, at […]
Travel Tip Portugal: Why Évora is worth the visit from Lisbon.
“Évora is, in my eyes, the most beautiful town in Portugal”, says Beatriz, as we meet her and her husband André in Lisbon. Évora, haven’t I been there before, I’m thinking.

The German edition www.visitardenne.com/de is now finally online (and so are the Dutch and English versions of the homepage), so you may navigate the […]
10 off the beaten track tips for travelling in Prague.
The city of Prague is at our very Austrian fingertips. There are hourly connections to reach the Czech capital city from Vienna, the distance is an easy four hours by train or car, and historically speaking, there are more commonalities than differences between our two countries. Strange, then, that we have never really been there before. […]
Packing List for our first trip with Baby Liam: What’s in his suitcase?
A good question. The World Wide Web has fewer answers than I thought, as most “packing lists for travelling with a baby or toddler” refer to babies much older than our son, only six weeks old at present. There are tips regarding baby food, bottles, sterilisers, or toys – we do not need any of […]
Liam is here! Family travel tips from Creativelena.com
On 28 Mai 2019, our world has likely changed forever: The birth of our son has brought nothing but joy and sunshine into our lives and hearts. It really is true what they say, that from now on, it feels like carrying your heart outside of your body. You find yourself reacting to every little […]
