I'm Karen Roldan
A Filipino who moved to Sweden in 2018. As a foreigner in Sweden, I am letting you in on my adventures and experiences (even the negative ones) while living abroad!
Started as a weekend hobby to share my quick getaways, this blog becomes my platform for sharing my expat life, different travel stories, tips, and guides.
I believe you don’t have to travel far to experience new things!
ABOUT THE BLOG
How It All Started
When I was 16, after my high school graduation, I moved to Australia for college and lived there for less than a year. I was alone and young then; I felt homesick. After the program, I went back to the Philippines to continue my college education and later relocated to Sweden in 2018.
I work in the IT industry and was lucky to get a job in Sweden. This is my second chance to move abroad, and it felt like it was the right time also.
Three years later, I am married, my husband moved to Sweden, we bought an apartment, and is really starting a new life here.
This inspires me to rebrand my blog, karenroldan.net, and focus on travel and expat life content!
I believe that you don’t need to travel far and have a lot of money to experience new things.
THE HEART OF EVERYTHING IN THIS BLOG IS AUTHENTICITY.
Karen Roldan is a travel and expat life blog that aims to share different travel stories, tips, and guides. As a traveler, I like to spend more days in a city and explore its hidden gems. I get more excited if I can visit an underrated city first!
As a foreigner living in Sweden, you will also find here my adventures and experiences while living abroad.
