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?

And stay creative, just as you would in everyday life. Learn and benefit from like-minded travellers and/or children around you. Check out […]

Gourmet Trip & Creative Tourism in Thailand

“So during your travels, have you made it to Asia?” – “What? You haven’t been to Asia on your round the world trip?!” – “You absolutely have to go to Asia! People are sooo friendly! And it’s cheap, too.” Well, to be honest with you, I first had to turn 29 in order to eventually […]
