Hi! I'm Elena! Welcome to my travel blog Creativelena.com.
For me, it is all about “life-seeing instead of sightseeing”: Join me as I create, eat & live my way around the world. Curious?
*Check out my book, “The Creative Traveler’s Handbook”, for learning more about what we mean by creative travel. Travelling means the world to me, makes me fit for everday life and sometimes, I trust, also calmer on the inside. Read this blog with a smile, share what you love and remember to check back regularly: After all, when was the last time you did something for the first time?

I could not take my hands off … the camera. Magic, pure magic was what I saw last weekend hiking across the wine-terraced hills of my home city Krems in the Danube river valley, situated at the gateway to the Wachau World Heritage landscape. Of course, I am always reminded by my lovely wine-growing friends that we are actually, “originally, from the Kamptal wine growing district (not the Wachau)!” However, my pride is now stretching “far across the borders” and from the Lower Austrian Kamptal into the neighbouring Krems and its magic wine-terraced Wachau hills. (It’s all a bit of a joke, really 😉 ). Krems is what I call home now for more than three years, yet still feeling like a first-time visitor during this magic autumn walk. Being the creative traveller I am, these colours simply touch the soul. And inspire. To Paint, photograph or just to relax and enjoy.
I took a long time after coming home from my three hours walk. It took me a while to settle down from my emotions and select 35 photographs for my Flickr Photo gallery from more than 100 snapshots, only to choose my top ten for the purpose of this article here. Enjoy the result. I look forward to your feedback!
