First Contact: Valter Mavrič

In this episode we talk to Valter Mavrič, a compatriot of mine who moved to Luxembourg some fifteen years ago and never looked back. For he most part that’s because he’s busy heading the General directorate of the European Parliament for Translation, or DG TRAD as it is affectionately known on the inside.

But also because not only has Valter adopted Luxembourg, Luxembourg seems to have adopted him. Which is why we talked about breaking out of the expat bubble, whether it is worth it (spoiler alert: it most certainly is) and how to make the first contact – a little less awkward.

Thanks for tuning in, or downloading, as it were, i hope you’ve enjoyed this episode of Luxventures. Apologies for my mangling the Luxembourgish language right there at the end. I’ll get it right one of these days.
