Elena

I am Elena, a twenty-something from the little town of Heidelberg with a love for travel and photography. As soon as I have some free time and money, I pack my camera and hop on the next train or plane to go exploring. I love being on the move, meeting people from all over the world and listening to their stories, getting inspired. This little space is about my travelling adventures and, for the time inbetween my journeys, some bits and pieces of my life in Heidelberg..so if you want to follow my little folly, have a look! And if you like what you see, please let me know :-) For some snapshots from everyday life follow me around on instagram under @labaroudeuseenbalade

Her words resonated in me, we have made similar experiences and have made similar conclusions. A lot of fellow travelers, as she …

Mornings at Inle Lake

  There are still way too many pictures sitting on my hard drive from my trip to Myanmar that I haven’t edited yet…so I thought I’d share a few from my morning boat trip at Inle lake that hardly need any editing. Inle Lake is the biggest lake in Myanmar and home to the tribe …

Trekking in Myanmar

  Trekking always offers the opportunity to not only experience the surrounding nature and landscape but also gives an insight into local people’ lives and cultural traditions.
