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?

Packing List for our first trip with Baby Liam: What’s in his suitcase?

A good question. The World Wide Web has fewer answers than I thought, as most “packing lists for travelling with a baby or toddler” refer to babies much older than our son, only six weeks old at present. There are tips regarding baby food, bottles, sterilisers, or toys – we do not need any of […]
