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!


Creative travel, hands-on workshops, cooking & craft lessons, painting, photography or simply preferring to speak four languages a day: Do you also prefer listening to locals’ advice, being off rather than on stage, being a traveller rather than a tourist? Then Creativelena’s Travel Blog is just what you are looking for!

Travelling and immersing oneself in foreign cultures: A daunting thought to some, while others consider it second nature.

Creative Travel in Cádiz: Top Picks from Bolonia to Vejer De La Frontera

The beautiful “white village” of Vejer De La Frontera sits high atop a hill overlooking the surrounding Andalusian landscape in the province of Cádiz. If you look closely, you can even see the old Roman ruins in Bolonia bay at the horizon. Spain really excels itself once more here, as we could already confirm travelling to the city of Cádiz and exploring […]


Three Days in Tarifa: Cosmopolitan City “con carácter”!

Perhaps, my lonesome twenty minutes of sunbathing & daydreaming at the sunny beaches of Tarifa have been the most intense of my whole trip to the province of Cádiz, Andalusia. Even though we are once more pushing the cliché of “sol y playa”, it cannot be denied: Turquoise seas, view over African mountains in the […]

City walk in Barcelona: Human Towers & Castles in the Sand …

I just LOVE Barcelona. Actually, I never need a reason for visiting the capital city of Catalonia. Returning home from my creative travel experience in Galicia? Barcelona is on the way, “halfway” between Santiago de Compostela and Vienna. Besides, my beautiful friend & colleague Caroline Couret, of the International Creative Tourism Network and Barcelona’s creative […]
