Read more about expat life in Romania in our Expat Arrivals Romania country guide.
A: Baton Rouge, Louisiana
A: We lived in the city of Tulcea for three years. That was nice as everything is within an easy walking distance, but what I love about our house in the country is the peace of nature and growing my own food. The people here are very giving as well.
About living in Bestepe
A: In Tulcea the area known as E3 is prime. The area known as Dallas reminds me of a ghetto.
About working in Romania
A: Again. I’m married to a Romanian national, so it was a bit easier for me. However I don't work, at least not for money. Farming and housework keeps me pretty busy! I have residency which gives me authorisation to work.
Family and children
A: Not really. Kids picked up the language within a month. I was the one who experienced culture shock.
A: If you aren't open to new things and always question why they don’t do things like your native country then don't go anywhere. Just stay home.
