Hey, I'm Madeline!
Or should I say "Hej"? I do live in Sweden after all.
I have an incurable case of wanderlust.
Like so many of you, ever since I can remember, I’ve dreamed of all the places in the world that I hoped to visit in this lifetime.
It would only make sense that one of my many adventures would lead me to the love of my life – who just so happens to be from Sweden!
So after months of travelling back and forth across the Atlantic, I quit my job, packed my bags, bought myself (and my cat) a one-way plane ticket, and followed my heart across the world.
About Madeline Rae Away
Madeline Rae Away was founded in 2019 as a way to document my life & travel adventures while living overseas. Over the past few years, I’ve found myself to be a constant source of travel, lifestyle, and restaurant recos for those closest to me. After a final push from my sister, Madeline Rae Away developed as a synergy of some of my biggest passions: writing, content creation, and of course, travel.
Here, you’ll find in-depth details of all my favourite experiences. I often choose to totally immerse myself in the culture of the places I visit, venturing far beyond the ‘touristy’ suggestions that you’ll often find on other platforms. I’d rather spend several days in a city, instead of a quick visit. And, most importantly, I only recommend places and things that I wholeheartedly love.
This space is all about real, genuine experiences. Despite the perfection that others may share on their social media feeds, this lifestyle is something that comes with many guaranteed ups and downs. My adventures have resulted in the most unforgettable memories, the highest highs, so many [sometimes difficult] learning experiences, and inevitable homesicknesses – but I really couldn’t imagine my life any other way. Right now, I am exactly where I want to be and I’ve never been happier.
Follow along with Madeline Rae Away where I’ll be dishing all the details on my favourite travel experiences, expat life, city guides, reviews & photos.
