Welcome to my blog!

I’m a lover of mountains, used book stores and eating local foods.

I’ve been blogging on and off for about 5 years now of my travels and adventures. I started blogging my travels when I went to Liberia as a student researcher, and continued when I spent more than a year in France working as an au pair and travel around Europe.  I’ve also chronicled my time working in Myanmar.

  3. Hi Marlee!

    Thanks for checking out my blog last week. I’m really interested in hearing more about how you set up your fast-approaching au pair gig—it’s something I’m looking into doing in the next year or so. Did you use an agency? Find the family yourself or through a friend?

    1. Hi Cara! thanks for taking a look at my blog! I did not use an agency – I made a profile on aupair.com and began searching for families. The family I am working with actually found me on the site and we skyped a few times and then they offered me the position. It was a process of about 2 weeks from when I created my profile to when I accepted the offer. Very easy! Let me know if you want more information! i’d love to hear more about your experiences!

    1. Hey, I plan to be here for a year – but I’m already looking at ways to stay longer – internships or possibly teaching, etc. I love it here! where are you from?

      1. Yes! I want to do the same haha.. I think I will extend my trip once I get there. I’m from Nova Scotia, and unfortunately I have to go to Montreal for my appointment.. I don’t leave until August 20th so I still have a while but I’m going to book my flight this week. Did you get a return flight or just one way?
