Lots of fun - ask lots of questions

I wish I had asked what the weather is like on a daily basis. I brought too many of the wrong clothes.

Also make sure you know how much time you are actually going to have with the kids because it gets quite boring not doing anything for 6 hours of the day 3 days a week, unless you want to go out to the city all the time. GeoVisions makes it easy to communicate with your host family before you leave home, but I would recommend asking lots of detailed questions to the family.

My host family bought me a car to use while I was here to help drop off and pick up the kids and they put a GPS in my car to help me get around or get back home if I got lost, but I don't use it that often it's not that hard to get around.

Make sure your first priority is the kids, they are always the main priorities always making sure they are safe and healthy and eating good nutritional food. If you do that, the remainder of your time will be fun.

Love having time to travel

I highly recommend the GeoVisions au pair program in Italy. But keep and open mind and be flexible! When you join a host family, you basically jump on a moving train. Take time to observe and find a way to make your presence meaningful in their family while also not changing their daily routine.

This program will give you plenty of time (and money) to travel and explore. I am going to Croatia and more around Italy before I head back the States. Must see include Cinque Terre in Italy and Prague so far. I took time to explore Milan and constantly am visiting small cities in northern Italy. The best part about living abroad is being so close to all the hidden treasures.

One priority for me was to go to a few cities that weren't on my list before I got here. I also want to make an effort to make more Italian friends and not just new friends from America or other English speakers. That's easier to do when you're traveling.

Great way to see Spain

After my au pair job in Spain, I will be going back home to Mississippi to prepare for my next job as an English teacher for grades 7-12. I have traveled a good bit during my time here and would highly recommend both Rome, Italy, and Barcelona, Spain. They were my favorite trips out of about 9/10 total trips.

If you come over as an au pair, don't be afraid to become attached to the kids! Your time will be more fulfilling in the long run. Also, ask ahead of time when the long weekends are if you want to travel. GeoVisions sets you up to email or Skype with the family before you leave home. So make sure they understand you are also there to travel. It can make life much easier.

I found a walk and talk group which met once a week and allowed me to learn secret insights into Madrid, which is where I have been since January. There are several types of ways to meet people and really make the most of your experience.

This program has given me the ability to listen more and I have forced myself to immerse myself into a culture much, much different than my own. I now prioritize my wellbeing more in comparison to having been a college student who never worried about anything other than classes.

Growing in independence

Being an au pair in Ireland with GeoVisions has all been a life changing experience so far for me. And I'm very excited to see what the next few months entail!

Ireland has beautiful scenery. I have traveled to the west coast to Killarney and saw the ring of Kerry and several national parks. I definitely recommend choosing Ireland if you want to be an au pair with GeoVisons! I am going to Galway next weekend to see the Aran islands and the Cliffs of Moher. Should be great as well.

I came over with many self goals. A few being to be comfortable with being by myself and traveling on my own. I wanted to grow more independence and I also wanted to travel to as many countries as possible while I am here. I haven't been out of the country yet, but in two weeks I am taking my first trip out. Very excited!

My goals changed a little

I have gotten the chance to see many interesting things: the Shwedagon Pagoda, People's Park, the Independence Monument, the NLD HQ, Kandawgyi Park, and the waterfalls in Pyin Oo Lwin.

But what beats seeing all of these amazing landmarks is the experience of working with kids who are not only eager to learn English but are also enthusiastic and inspired by the chance. Everyday my day starts with shouts of "Good morning Teacher Sam!", "How are you teacher Sam?!", and, "Have a good day teacher Sam!". Each day I work with students who get a kick out of hearing a native speaker teach them English while getting the chance to teach me about themselves and their culture. The country has some truly beautiful and magical landmarks but nothing beats the experience of teaching the kids. GeoVisions does a great job with this program.

In Yangon, you must go to the Shwedagon Pagoda. I spot where, yes, every tourist goes but also a place that locals cherish and visit regularly. It is so important that it is tradition for everyone to go there on their birthday.

My main goal was to immerse myself in the culture of where I was and become a part of the community, as well as, travel as much as possible. These are somewhat conflicting goals as you have to be around to become a part of a community. So far I have been successful in my first goal and have felt very accepted into my community in Pyin Oo Lwin. People around town call me teacher when they see me and everyone is so friendly. I do hope to travel more but this has become a secondary goal to feeling apart of the town I'm living in.
