The end of an adventure or just a new beginning

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” Dr. Seuss

Hi guys,

My au pair stay is over and I’m back in Germany. So it’s time now for my last blog post and my last video.

I want to say thank you to everyone who has come along with me on this adventure, read my blog and watched my videos. Thank you also to a wonderful host family that has truly become a second family for me. Thanks to AuPairWorld and to all my colleagues for giving me this opportunity and helping me with the execution. Thanks to my friends and family for being involved in my adventure and giving me the support I needed when I sometimes felt homesick or discouraged.

So my last video is a little review of my au pair adventure, a time I will never forget. I hope you enjoy it:

Bye bye and all the best :-)


Irish culture: Dancing and food

Hi guys,

For my latest video I went out to experience some new aspects of Irish culture – so I could report back to you.  This had me eating oysters (on the one hand) and step dancing (on the other) and of course watching the experts who can do it better than me. And better than reading about it here, take a look at the video. Hope you enjoy!

And talk to you soon!

New video: Why I love my host kids

Hi guys,

As an au pair the most important thing you have to do is to take care of your host kids. But it’s not only that. Before you know it, they have taken a big place in your heart too. So today in my new video I want to tell why (exactly) I love my host kids. Thanks for watching!

And talk to you soon.

Thanks for taking part in our Instagram contest!

Hi guys,

Thank you very much for taking part in the Instagram contest run by AuPairWorld and me. The contest is now over and we had a meeting yesterday to choose the winner, which was definitely not easy, because a lot of au pairs posted so many amazing photos to “My au pair stay in Ireland”.

The winners of the selfie sticks were informed yesterday, so have a look at your posted picture again to see if you’re one of them :)

I’ll keep you updated!

Ellen :)
