A millennial Filipino who left her life in Manila to work & live in Sweden
I started this blog as an outlet for sharing my travels and experiences living abroad, but it quickly turned into a platform providing you all with tips and guides on how to live life overseas or just talk about what it’s like being different from home!
If there’s anything we can do together – whether it’s planning your move abroad today; getting advice from someone who already lived here awhile, or feeling inspired after reading one of the many stories – let me know!
I have helped (and met) a lot of foreigners, mostly Filipinos, who are planning to move abroad or who have moved to Sweden.

about the blog
How it all started
After graduating from high school, I spent a few months in Australia to study and finished my bachelor’s degree in the Philippines before relocating to Sweden in 2018.
I work in the IT industry, which is in demand abroad, and got a job in Sweden.
I got married abroad, my husband moved to Sweden, we bought an apartment, and started a new life here.
This inspired me to rebrand my blog, karenroldan.net, and focus on travel and life abroad content!
Karen Roldan is a blog that seeks to provide travelers with different travel experiences, advice, and ideas.
You will also discover here my escapades and encounters while living abroad as a non-EU foreign resident in Sweden.
