Welcome to Monica | The Mexican

A Mexican in Sweden traveling around the world and sharing her expat lifestyle.



Hi there! My name is Monica Bejar and I’ve always been passionate about travelling. In 2012 I came to Sweden (and Europe!) for the first time as an exchange student, met a Swedish guy and moved here for a couple of years ago. It’s been quite the adventure.
