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?

Creative Culture Trip through Serbia: Wine, Ceramics, Monasteries & mighty Churches.

This past autumn, I already found Belgrade, the capital city of Serbia, to be really cool & creative. Turns out I found it to be even more so on this second trip to Serbia, last but not least because of meeting talented local artist Lazar Rančić.

... die mondäne Hipsterk-Szene der Stadt lässt grüßen ...

Belgrade or: The story of an up & coming Balkan city destination.

Going for a morning walk right by the river Sava, looking downstream just as it joins up with the Danube. Not too much of a difference with my home town near Vienna really, judging from some of the scenery around here. All too often, I feel reminded of the “great history” that separates as well […]

... wie dem auch sei, uns gefällt's eine der weniger bekannten Ecken der Stadt kennen zu lernen.

Novi Sad: Hipster & History in what is perhaps the coolest town of Serbia.

This town. Great vibes and good food. Plus the odd corner, district or street that has yet to see its “coming of age”. Novi Sad, you’ve honestly fascinated me in a way that I haven’t felt for a long time. And who would have thought: Discovering a creative (wool) art studio inside the town’s main fortress?! Glancing at […]

... nicht wahr, liebe Sanja?

Going horse riding at Dobro Prase Ranch near Novi Sad in Serbia.

Serbia. What comes to mind when you hear about Serbia as a travel destination? Before I’ve actually been on my very first trip to Serbia, not much I have to admit. I did see the beautiful video, sure, “Serbia: Land of New Beginnings”, which was done by my international travel writer & video producer peers, and […]
