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?

“The grass is always greener on the other side” … or longer. Heading north from my home country Austria in the heart of Europe, a gentle sea breeze welcomes us cradling the high grass on the sand dunes of the Baltic Sea Coast near the islands of Hiddensee and Rügen. My friends and I have travelled here covering some 1.000 kilometres by car in order to enjoy a late summer, early autumn week by the sea. Four people, two couples, one goal: A holiday apartment about five minutes’ walk from the shoreline, fresh fish every day, enjoying the nearby sea including some skinny-dipping in the 16°C balmy sea waters … aah, we love it here!
