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?

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. […]

First trip abroad with baby: 6 tips about getting organised and the actual journey

Our first trip with our little son outside Austria took us to Prague. By train. Why Prague? And why by train? Well, Prague is located at a distance from Vienna that on the one hand side can easily be combined with “baby sleep during the day” (it is about four hours by train), and on […]

Die Handhabung der App über die iPads der Stadt Tulln ist einfach ...

Experiencing a new museum app: “Virtulleum” in Tulln, Lower Austria

Can you time-travel with a baby? You can. Just recently, I have taken Liam on his first such trip as part of a hosted press event. The topic? One that might just be of interest to his generation: The digital reconstruction of past centuries and millennia, as well as the digital enhancement (change, additions) of already existing, historical […]

... danke, Therme Wien, für den schönen, echt entspannenden Tagesurlaub bei Euch!

Take a soothing ( #babymoon !) day spa trip to “Therme Wien”, Vienna’s local spa favourite: Easy and accessible alike.

One last trip into the “adult area” of the Vienna Spa “Therme Wien”. One last time of undisturbed snoozing, of reading magazines, of lolling around on your spa chair. One last day spa as a couple. The notion of taking a final break before a totally different routine is especially attractive to us as expectant […]

Vancouver & Whale Watching on Vancouver Island: Discovering the Pacific Coast of Canada.

What’s the best way to travel to Vancouver? If, like us in this case, you happen not to arrive by plane, but by land, then it’s worth considering a journey with the Canadian train VIA Rail. This train offers you unique landscape impressions combined with the convenience of simply getting on in the middle of […]

Dinkelsbühl, Du bist gleichauf mit Rothenburg ob der Tauber eine meiner Lieblings-Städte an der Romantischen Straße!

Romantic Road Part II : Driving from Würzburg and Taubertal valley to Rothenburg, Augsburg and Landsberg.

Würzburg, Wertheim, Weikersheim. The names of the first towns on the Romantic Road in Southern Germany are catchy. The Tauber Valley, which connects them, deserves to be called the “Lovely Tauber Valley” thanks to its beautiful river meanders. It is also well signposted, the “Romantic Road”: From Würzburg to the Allgäu, it is one of the […]

Romantic Road Germany Part I : The City of Würzburg.

“Würzburg is sooo beautiful … Enjoy Würzburg and the wines of Franconia”, my travel friends advise about my short stay in Würzburg. As part of the “Romantic Road“, the Franconian town is surrounded by countless romantic vineyards on the Main river. I take to visiting “Vinothek Wohlsein Weine” with their goal to introduce younger, smaller […]

#VisitLinz : Eco Cultural Travel in & around Linz, Upper Austria.

Linz. I do believe, that the third-largest town of Austria is truly underrated. Years ago already, when we had our Austrian travel bloggers’ meeting in Linz, I have been impressed with what you can do in the city of Linz. Getting creative, that is, baking your own famous Linzer cake for instance. Visiting the internationally acclaimed Ars […]

Language Travel Abroad: Back to Rome with EF International

EF – Education First. The motto of what I consider to be, my “Alma Mater” concerning language travel abroad, and also the name of the very first language school I went to London with for an “Academic Year Abroad” back in 2002 ..! EF has really changed my life in many ways: Thanks to this early […]
