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?
It must have been for a reason that I was born in the autumn. Ever since I can think, I attributed the autumn with a special kind of magic: The colours, the intense luminosity of the golden afternoon sun, its last warming rays on your skin, the countless offerings of nature. For me, autumn is a magnificent feast for the senses: The tangy smell of leaves on the ground, mixed with the sweet taste of apples that recall growing up & playing in mum’s garden (I have, as of yet, found no better-tasting apples than those from mum’s garden – despite my many world travels 😉 well done, mum!). And oh, all the sun-kissed wine-terraced hills that autumn sets ablaze before they, too, relax under a blanket of snow in winter. Autumn … is just beautiful. Really!
During the last couple of weeks, I found myself again and again being mesmerized by the beauty of a landscape, a tree, a path and / or sharing the latter with good friends and family. Most of the time, I had my iPhone camera with me and was able to share my emotions via the photo app Instagram (yes, you can find me here as well). So today, it is your turn to experience the beauty of autumn: Enjoy what I consider the most beautiful images portraying the colour display of nature in the autumn.
