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?

Join the Blogger Contest “Travellers Worldwide”: Win an exclusive Travel Magazine!

Here we go, dear readers! “Creativelena” has just turned one and invites you to join a blogger contest of a kind. It is your creativity that I am asking for here! And the best thing is: Every participant in this contest wins, the top winner even gets a special surprise by us. “Us”? Yes, that’s right. For the occasion of celebrating, I have teamed up with a great travel magazine in order to make you happy and get your creative juices flowing. So what is this all about? Read on!

This year’s topic: Travellers Worldwide.

Being invited to dance by an African drummer. Joining a picknick with a bunch of Ozzies in a place named Coral Bay (yes, right inside the sea!). Visiting Peruvian people on their floating islands of Titicaca Lake. And finally … marvelling at crystal-clear icebergs and grazing guanacos in remote Torres del Paine National Park, Southern Patagonia, Chile. I did all that with my big love for “travelling worldwide“.

Now it is you who I am asking: Where have you been on your “travels worldwide“? Who have you met, what traditions, meals or customs did you experience? What are your most exceptional travel memories from around the globe?

Zum Tanz aufgefordert: Das Gold Restaurant in Kapstadt, Südafrika lädt zum Mitmachen (Trommeln & Tanzen) ein!

Being invited to dance: The Gold Restaurant in Cape Town, South Africa, invites me to join in the fun (dancing & drumming)!

In Australien geht es ganz entspannt ab: Mitten im Meer findet man sich hier zum feucht-fröhlichen Picknicken wieder

Oz is far more relaxed: Right inside the sea, this crowd gathers to have a small picknick – and invites me right in.

Die schwimmenden Inseln auf dem höchsten schiffbaren See der Welt (über 4.000 Meter liegt der gewaltige Titicaca-See über dem Meerresspiegel!) und ihre Einwohner sind allemal eine Reise wert

The floating islands of Titicaca lake, set on the highest navigating lake in the entire world, at about 4.000 metres above sea level, beckon visitors to come and meet their local population, Los Uros in Peru.

Das tiefblaue Gletschereis im Nationalpark Torres del Paine im Süden Chiles beeindruckt mich auch heute noch ungemein.

The crystal-clear colours of this magnificent iceberg still continue to impress me today. This picture was taken on a boat trip on Lago Grey in Torres del Paine National Park.

Auch grasende Guanakos wie diese sind dort heimisch und zählen für mich ebenso wie die Menschen Patagoniens zu den "außergewöhnlichsten Einheimischen" dieses Landstriches.

Grazing guanacos like this one are just as much “world travellers” as we are, constantly moving in search of food. This one, though, decides to have a break while “smiling” at the camera.

 

In order to organise this blogger contest, I have teamed up with the Austrian Terra Mater Magazine, a bi-monthly travel magazine that focuses on remote places, exotic peoples and breathtaking forces of nature – just as we do as travel bloggers.

Their next edition comes out on 25 November 2013. Main topic: “Travellers Worldwide“. 😉 This feature article talks about the people of the Nenzen in the tundra of North Western Siberia, who with their reindeers, tents and dogs are nomads almost all year round. I really look forward to reading it!

Join the Contest & Win: This is how it works.

Good things first: Each participant in this blogger contest wins. We will send each one of you a copy of the Terra Mater magazine, the top winner even receiving an annual subscription of Terra Mater. Care to join us? This is how it works:

1. Publish your (photo) blog article “Travellers Worldwide” on your website / blog.

2. Link to this page on your blog (pingback).

3. Share the blogger contest through your Social Media networks, e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc. and invite your friends and followers to join.

Done!

At the end of the contest (25 November 2013 = date of publication of the new Terra Mater magazine new date is 30 November 2013!), we will collect all your entries, read them and decide on a top winner!

Important to know: Each and every participant wins. At the end of the blogger contest, I will contact each one of you in order to send you your prize. So what are you waiting for? I look forward to reading all about your creative adventure stories and trips. 😉

Das Thema "Reisende am Rand der Welt" ist so vielfältig und bunt wie Eure Kreativität: Ob Ihr Euch auf Fotos, Videos oder Erlebnisberichte spezialisiert, alles ist willkommen.

The travel topic “Travellers Worldwide” is as colourful and varied as you choose to be creative. Everything is possible: Videos, photos, travel stories – it is really up to.

Ich freue mich, von Euch zu lesen!

I look forward to hearing all your stories!

Spread the love
