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?
“Girona m’enamora! !!!” – “Such picturesque, and unforgettable moments.” – “Costa Brava still has so much for us to discover. Many, I believe, have not put it on their radar yet – the ‘wild coast’ north of Barcelona.”
You are right, my dear readers. Reading through your feedback on my Social Media posts, I am reminded of the happiness of being #InCostaBrava. 🙂 After a first glimpse of the enchanting small town of Llançà and its picturesque surroundings, I knew I had to come back soon. To explore more. To feel more. To enjoy tasting the sweet sense of local hospitality that the Catalan people know to provide so well. And why not start your visit with a stroll around Girona, the capital city of Costa Brava less than an hour north of Barcelona boasting a tasteful array of flavours and colours to celebrate your stay?
“Let’s take it slow …!” Marc next to me in the car looks at me and smiles. “I prefer taking you through some of the small towns and villages on the way from Girona to L’Escala. And once we reach L’Escala, you will see why it is easily one of the most beautiful towns around …!” He smiles even more, and laughs. The pride Marc feels for his home town is palpable all the way through, and I cannot help but fall for the magic he describes.
I am, to this day, still wondering … 😉
Let’s take a look at some of the magic of seaside L’Escala, located in the beautiful Golf de Roses in northern Costa Brava.
