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?

Holidays with a baby can be many things. Tiring. Exhausting. Breathtaking. Unusual. Unique. Magical. But luxurious? Hang on, that’s new. Our luxurious stay at the Kinderhotel Laurentius in Fiss, Tyrol tells the tale.
After all, who would have thought that “four star superior is also possible with baby”?
My husband Georg and I have been very positively surprised upon arriving here in the southwestern corner of Tyrol, close to the border with Switzerland. The Laurentius is “no typical kids hotel”, but rather a cosy boutique hotel, similar to the ones we’ve already stayed at as a couple pre-baby. Literally all our needs as young parents are met here without ever renouncing luxury and comfort.
A great concept, we believe, because why not pamper yourselves in such an intense period of your life that is (new) parenthood?
… and thanks to our baby phone and Liam’s reliable nap times during the day, we were able to chase, and find, a rare good: Quality time as a couple, all on our own. Wonderful. All possible here at the Laurentius hotel.
Liam’s little menu reads as follows: Freshly cooked, unseasoned organic vegetables. Freshly stewed potatoes and carrots. The following day: Fresh potato, parsnip and zucchini baby food. Plus a buffet of pre-cooked Hipp glasses. Tea, had he liked some.
But what he really did like …
Check out where exactly we have travelled to in Tyrol:
Despite, or maybe because of Liam having a slight cold, we have been outside with him (warmly wrapped up, of course) each and every day. The small town of Fiss, where the baby boutique Hotel Laurentius is located, is still quiet ahead of the main winter season. We take a walk past the local church and all the way to Wolfsee lake, but are driven back quickly by the sharp winds and muddy snow blocking the path for our stroller. Well, whatever: Mountain views may also be enjoyed from the rooftop spa.
Did you know that bathrobes are also made for babies? Of course, right? Since how may the youngest guests get to the family wellness area “in style”, otherwise …? 😉
After Liam’s little baby swim class, it’s time for a massage for our sore backs and we learn just how much baby weighs by now … such a delight to allow yourself a good, thorough massage after all those first few months of carrying baby. Later, we go back to the pool with him, which is a delight for all of us. After all, what else is left to do? The big family slide into the main pool is only allowed to be used from six years of age ..!
