Who is this blog for?
I created Sweden and Me with non-Swedes in mind – those of us whom are expats living in Sweden, people about to move here, tourist visiting this beautiful country, or the Scandinavian obsessed. I know many Swedes get a kick out of it too, though!

While I am by no means an expert on all things Swedish, I definitely have learned a fair amount in the years that I have lived in Sweden (since 2018!). I hope that you will find that I have unique, interesting, and honest things to say about my experience as an expat in Sweden so far!
