We are Nikos and Elenα, the first greek travel-blogger couple.
The word “Travelen” comes from the combination of the word “Τravel” and our first name initials (EN), while being wordplay for “traveler”. Our home, our place, our base, the start and finish line of our trips is the charming city of Thessaloniki. We do not have some amazing story about how we started, but what we do have are the most powerful weapons, craziness and our shared love of traveling. Our priority is to meet new places and flavors, different cultures, people and whatnot, in our own, special way! The Blog’s purpose is to help you organize your trip, as well as meet new destinations that you haven’t been able to see until now. If you love trips, experiences, adventures (we have quite a few of them), images, flavors, as well as Us, stay tuned right here!

Why is Travelen different from other travel blogs? The website offers you a complete experience for every destination, without having to resort to other sources. With a valid, personal, and free of any preconception, affinity or distaste opinion, you will find information about tourist attractions, activities, places to eat and have fun, as well as suggestions for your accommodation. Furthermore, through the Tips section, you will avoid traps and pitfalls, while the photos and videos will entertain you and transfer you to each destination. Finally, in the Blog section you will find everything about traveling, as well as the last traveling news about technology, fashion and food.
Where will I stay? How will I move? Where will I eat? What will I see? Will I manage to see everything? What is the weather like? What kind of clothes should I pack? Where will I drink some coffee? What should I be aware of? All of these questions have only one, shared answer… Travelen!
I liked traveling since I was little, or to be exact, I was born with this travel-bug! Binky, blankie and countless kilometers with the car (sorry, dad!) were the nonnegotiable conditions for me to fall asleep. In the Blog, you will usually see me munching on something. I like chocolate, French fries, while I’m crazy about fish and various tidbits. I love quietness, especially when I can combine it with some hot coffee, a book and a beautiful landscape. I am the one that organizes the program and looks for the general information for each of our destinations. Sometimes I take on the role of the photographer and the cameraman, but I prefer it when the spotlight is on me! (duckface…) Traveling fills me with new images, experiences and memories. Either close or far away, it will always be a part of my life and I hope it becomes part of yours, too. I am Elena and I welcome you to Travelen. #TravelenEleni

Hello… I am Nikos, the one who gives the ideas for our destinations. Now, you would like to learn some things about me, right? Well, I love chocolate, in its every form, traveling, exercising (being a Sports Studies graduate and all), and cooking. If I could be traveling all the time, I would. Traveling gives me life and is a way of escaping the day-to-day routine. It is also my way of dreaming and expressing myself. My goal is to travel the whole world and become as rich as I can… in images and experiences! In this website, you will mostly meet me in the DoDo, Entertainment, Food and Photos sections, as well as some of the Blog posts. Follow your heart and dream, because it’s the only way to get ahead. And don’t forget to Love, Laugh and Travel!
