I like reading. And sometimes I feel bold enough to try my hand at writing. My area of expertise is Romania, so most of my books will be about Romanian brands: Ceausescu, Gypsies, Transylvania, Dracula, etc.
My name is Catalin Gruia and I am a veteran journalist who has written and reported for the Romanian edition of National Geographic for over 11 years. I am currently Editor in Chief of National Geographic Traveler and Deputy Editor in Chief of National Geographic Romania.
