You wouldn't be here if you weren't curious.*

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?

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?

Nine months “on the road”: Nine tips and insights into a truly special lifetime.

Truth be told: I cannot reach down to both my feet with both my hands any longer, but I can manage to type still, pushing those hands past a rather huge bulging belly by now. 40 weeks pregnant. Crazy business! And what a journey it is, and has been. Each day might be the day; […]

Picture perfect Wachau valley (as seen during a pregnancy photo shoot).

What we could have done: A pregnancy belly cast. A pregnancy belly painting. A pregnant belly show-off each day on Instagram Stories (really … some do exaggerate). What Georg and I did do instead: A pregnancy photo shoot.     So after telling you all about #Babymoon before, I’m telling you to add a professional […]
