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?
*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?
Novi Sad: Hipster & History in what is perhaps the coolest town of Serbia.
This town. Great vibes and good food. Plus the odd corner, district or street that has yet to see its “coming of age”.

arte Hotel Kufstein: Urban Lifestyle goes #LoveTirol !
Gazing out the window, I can see all the way until “the end of Tirol”. At least, this is what it feels like what with the vast swath of the river Inn down below, stretching out miles and miles further West. Not any kind of window, of course, but the panorama windows at the spa area […]
Farm Holidays in Austria: The Fallmann family near Scheibbs, Lower Austria
“Tucked away at the foot of the Ötscher mountain”, among the gently rolling hills of the alpine upland in Lower Austria, I read into Brigitte’s “business card” aptly describing the surrounding farm holiday concept. She offers me both a sweet smile, as well as a slice of freshly baked apricot cake as a welcome to […]
