The year of being an Au Pair has ended and now I am sitting on the floor trying to pack up a year of experiences abroad in two suitcases and it is really hard. I have accumulated more things than I realised and I'm now trying to squeeze it all.
This year has been amazing, if I had to do it over I would do it all the exact same. I have met some really cool people from all over and hopefully will keep in contact with them for years to come.
Taking this job and moving to the other side of the world was so nerve racking and before I left I wondered if I was doing the right thing, but I couldn't be happier.
I have found I have grown as a person, become more independent and see the world around me in a different light. It really opens your mind to appreciate what you have and the people and things around you that you just got used to being there.
Take the leap, enjoy your life and follow the adventure that is ahead of you!
Now back to packing!! I wish I could just click my fingers like Mary Poppins and it would be done...
