Who am I

Hello and welcome to my blog

I am a Romanian journalist. I lived in Dublin and now I moved with my husband and our dog (Luna) in a small town near Luxembourg, called Arlon. This blog is about me and the stories of my foreign/expat life. Hope you like it. 


Buna!!! Eu sunt Raluca. In Romania am fost jurnalist, am lucrat in radio si televiziune. Viata m-a purtat in Dublin, frumoasa capitala a Irlandei. A fost ca a doua mea casa, dar a trebuit sa plec din nou. Acum locuiesc impreuna cu sotul meu si cainele nostru, Luna, o mandra collie, in Belgia colt cu Luxemburg. Incerc sa va povestesc viata noastra aici. Sper sa va placa :)

About me

If you made it this far, I salute you! As you can see I have many layers, but there is always a core. I am a journalist, more to the point I am a radio journalist. I now live in Arlon at the border with Luxembourg, a place which I call Arlonia. I have a dog, she is called Luna and I am bound to write a post or two about her as well. I am documenting my life here and now. I am passionate about ethnography and folk traditions, I love Carnival Season in this area, I love reading about different traditions and I love promoting my traditions, being Romanian or Irish. I am able to talk for ages about Romanian Blouses, I held conferences about them and organised an exhibition with them at the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg. I enjoy being freelance, I love my freedom of writing about what I like and when I like it. I love to travel and spend time with friends.
