Hi, my name is Deti, as a writer I go by the name of Deti Lucara as my pen-name, but you can just call me Deti.

I am a freelance content writer, translator and travel consultant for European market. Previously, for 5 years I worked as a bilingual (Ind-Eng) writer for culinary and tourism magazine in Yogyakarta. My experiences should tell you one thing: I love travelling, having culinary adventure and meeting new people. I believe that every journey, every encounter, every bite of local delicacy has a story to tell. Thanks to English, I am able to share stories and experiences with people from all over the globe.
