I’m a Filipino living my au pair life in Europe since 2012.I lived in Copenhagen,Denmark for two years and moved to Rotterdom, The Netherlands for a year and over a year in Lillehammer, Norway and now I’m currently au pairing in one of a small village in the Southern Sweden which is not really far away from civilization 😅.
You might ask? What is an au pair? It’s a cultural exchange program dealing with young adventurer to live in a foreign country in exchange of learning the culture, language and the society itself. With an sponsor called host family. You will stay with them in exchange of food and lodging. And in exchange for that, you’ll be helping them out with some light household chores and taking care of their kids mostly dropping them to school and picking up and some babysitting. They will provide you, your monthly allowance which depends on the rules of the country you are into.And the language course(the national language where you are au pairing in) . But it’s your choice. Some didn’t undergo language course. Instead they go for some courses that will develop their skills. Like cooking course, photography, painting, driving, swimming or anything. It depends how you able to convince and have an agreement with your host family.
I made this blog to share my thoughts and how I see the world through my eyes and the journeys I’ve been.Random events and hobbies I’m into. I love food (I’m a happy eater)I have an obsession with nature.I hope you’ll enjoy reading this as I continue my journey everywhere.
