The Au Pair Mix – Some thoughts at half-time of my au pair stay

Hi guys,

I’ve been here in Dublin for three months now, half-time in my au pair stay. I’ve had good days and bad days, I’ve laughed and cried, travelled through the country and become part of a family.

Take a look at my new video with my latest thoughts about this au pairing life:

Homesick – what can I do?

Hi guys,

When you’re in another country, far away from home, your family, your friends, your boyfriend – sometimes you feel homesick. (It’s only natural.) I felt especially homesick in the first week I was here in Dublin and sometimes I have moments when this feeling comes back. But this is not so bad, and I’ve found different ways of dealing with the homesickness problem. In my video I want to share my tips about what you can do when you’re feeling homesick. If you have more ideas, feel free to share them here on the blog!

Thanks and talk to you soon!
