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?

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?
