You wouldn't be here if you weren't curious.*
Hallo! Ich bin Elena! Willkommen auf meinem Reiseblog Creativelena.com.
Ich bin die Kreativreisende, und Du offensichtlich neugierig.
*Was ist "Kreativ Reisen"? Antworten auf diese und viele weitere Fragen liefert Dir mein Reisehandbuch "The Creative Traveler's Handbook". Am liebsten reise ich im Rhythmus der Einheimischen und bin dazu bereits ein paar Mal um die Welt. Sechssprachig. Mit viel Charme, Herz und Hirn. Dies hat mich sowohl ruhig als auch rastlos gestimmt: In der Fähigkeit, inspirierende Geschichten über außergewöhnliche Menschen und Regionen zu erzählen, liegt mein größtes Lebensglück. Viel Vergnügen & Inspiration beim Stöbern durch meine Reisegeschichten!
Languages & people are my passion. In this project space, you can read more about my PR / Social Media projects, follow my work as a tourism consultant or hire me as a language expert (drop me a line in English, écrivez-moi en francais, háblame en castellano oder ganz einfach auf Deutsch). Lucky enough to combine my favourite topics of being creative, travelling and bringing people together through networking and consultancy, I look forward to working together with you.
