Part of the Adventure
Becoming an au pair was probably one of the hardest and best decisions I've ever made. Going to a foreign country, speaking a new language, making new friends and working in a host family can be challenging, but for me it is totally worth it. In my opinion my new friends and traveling are the best parts of the experience.
I had the opportunity to see big cities like New York, Seattle, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco. But also the beautiful nature at Yosemite Nationalpark, Death Valley, Zion Nationalpark and Bryce Canyon. I'm so grateful that I could explore so much in so little time. If you like traveling - go for it and make some plans with your friends or alone. I know that going alone may sounds scary to you. But going out of your comfort zone is part of the adventure. Just do it and those memories will last forever.
