I lived in Geelong (Australia) for 7 months and I looked after 4 little girls. I simply loved the cultural exchange of my au pair experience. I feel so lucky because the kids taught me a lot, not only new language skills but also a different way to see things. I recommend the au pair experience, I feel enriched and more confident now. I could live in a beautiful city and meet people from all over the world in my free time, it was amazing! Geelong area is fun if you like sports and outdoor activities. It is also really close to Melbourne, it is only 1 hour by train. If you are a surfer you will just love to come down to Torquay and enjoy the best waves of the surf coast! I feel really lucky I could live this experience, Australia is a beautiful country and people are really open-minded.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
The first time I saw a kangaroo I was really excited!

This year has been truly life changing in every single way! I have grown up as a person, became so much stronger than I ever was and I feel like I can take on the world with this experience. It’s been the hardest thing I’ll ever do in my life, I have felt emotion that I never even knew I had! I wouldn’t change a single thing about my year. I have met some amazing people, some of which will be friends for life! I have engaged in new experiences that I never thought I would. My family and friends have been out to see me, which was just truly amazing!
I would like to thank Claire for everything she has done, she has been so kind and supportive through all of my decisions this year.
I would recommend this experience to anyone young adults!!!!

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Leaving home was something I can’t describe! Waiting for Joe, Carla and the kids to pick me up was a whole new experience!!

Coming straight out of university, this program was a perfect way to have a 'gap year' with employment and housing all in one package. Because you are moving overseas by yourself, having a family environment really made transition easier. I had a really awesome 12 months with my family, growing with the children as I learnt about myself at the same time. I made some really great friends too, who also moved to Australia through Niche Au Pairs. On our weekends we would explore the nature of Victoria area, or spend time in the city - great bars, shopping, and food!
I highly recommend doing something like this if you're unsure about what to do after uni, or want to travel with a little more sense of security.
Having a business like Niche Au Pairs helps with the process as it gives a contact person outside of the family if you really aren't feeling comfortable. Claire was very supportive and ensured the family I got was very well suited to the person I am!

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Finding the family at the airport when I didn't have any way to contact them! It was scary, a new city, busy airport but I kept myself calm and started walking towards an exit which I would easily be able to describe while keeping an eye out for them. I managed to recognise one of the children from out skype interviews! Phew!

Niche Au Pair is definitely the best organisation I’ve ever heard about!

Most (German) organisations costs a lot of money, they need hundreds of documents and in the end you aren’t even happy with your family. Niche a unpair is different: you don’t have to pay for the services, Claire is really really friendly and helpful and my host family was simply the best family I could think of.
I had a few friends from niche as well because Claire connects everyone very well. You’ll get an email from her with the contacts from other au pairs and then you just get in touch with them, works perfectly :)

If you think about going overseas you should really keep niche au pair in mind and maybe you’ll be able to have the same amazing experience as I had .

I loved my time as an Au Pair! I was with a beautiful family in Melbourne. It was a great experience to learn another culture and meet lots of life long friends along the way. There is a great au pair network in Melbourne through Niche as well as Facebook, it was so easy making friends. Melbourne is also such a fun city! There is something for everyone to do. I'm a bit of a foodie so I enjoyed it. Melbourne is know for sporting events, taking in a the Australian open tennis was one of the highlights of my trip.

Caire at Niche did a great job matching me and my family, we had so many things in common. It was very busy and stressfull at time but there were always laughs and good times too. Me and my family still keep in tough. I would highly recommend!

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
Snowboard all winter in Aus! My Family happened to be avid downhill skiers and had a cabin at my bullet. Just my luck, I didn't have to miss the ski season after all. During the school holidays me and the 3 kids were at the mountain full time and it was the funniest 2 weeks.
