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?

INATEL #ISTOForum2015: European Tourism For All Conference in the Algarve, Portugal
Portugal, I must say, kind of sticks on me. The call to speak at INATEL’s forum “Tourism for All” came second only after keynoting at Tourism Portugal’s Heritage Fair in Coimbra, complemented by attending Lisbon’s delicious World Food Tourism Summit earlier this year.
