Looking to travel internationally as an Au Pair, but need to narrow down my possible destinations. Prefer Europe!
I'd recommend New Zealand. If you don't mind being cold from time to time, but it's beautiful. https://www.aupairworld.com/en/au_pair_program/new_zealand/au_pair almost 2 years ago
Well, I have friends in London and although they love Europe, they don't like the au pair program there. They claim that there is a lot of exploitation (one of them has Spanish Citizenship and doesn't need a visa to work in the Uk for now). Another Friend went to the Netherlands and loved it, especially bc she was able to speak English with the kids. Be aware that there are a few prerequisites for some countries, for example, for France you need to have an intermediate level of French and the max age is 30.
I also heard that Australia is great and saw some videos online of girls who went and liked it.
If I were to choose I would go to Australia and in Europe, the Netherlands.
Hope it helps! almost 2 years ago
