Living abroad as an au pair can be a great way to support yourself while traveling. I have been an au pair in Germany and Turkey through AuPairWorld.com. Both experiences were vastly different from each other and I learned a lot in the process of what to do and not do as an au pair. I asked all the right questions before Germany, but didn’t ask many questions before Turkey. I had an overall good experience in Germany but had to leave my job as an au pair early in Turkey because of difficulties.
BEFORE accepting a job as an au pair, I really recommend asking the following questions of your adopted family. Ask the hard questions beforehand and you’ll have a wonderful experience. (Trust me!!!)
