Hi, my name is Elaine and I am Runaway Brit
I’m an English teacher from the UK. I love to travel and I find it impossible to stay in one place for too long.
I have lived in:
- 6 countries
- 4 cities
- 3 towns
- 1 village
- 1 island
Not only that, I have travelled to 40 countries.
I first experienced the freedom of travel during a short trip through Eastern Europe in 2000 when I went from Germany to Romania by train. I was sold. After that I escaped from Britain at every opportunity.
Nothing could beat the feeling of heading off on a new adventure.
Now I live and work in Sweden, where this website began.
My travel companion is mainly my partner Nicklas, an amazing Swedish guy that I met when I was travelling in Cambodia in 2008. Read our story ‘Serendipity in Sihanoukville’ over at the excellent Nomadic Chick website. When he is busy working I travel with friends.
Runawaybrit offers personal stories of my life on the road, as well as heaps of advice about how I maintain my travel lifestyle.
If I can do it, you can too!
