Last Sunday, the annual BAPAA River Cruise event was THE place to be (for an au pair at least) 😉
Starting at 11 am, approximately 300 au pairs were present ( Thank you so much for coming!). It was a great opportunity for au pairs to meet new friends who are going through the same experience as they are. So many different nationalities were present: Spanish, French, German, Italian, Australian …
Furthermore we had the chance to see historic landmarks throughout our journey : The House of Parliament, Big Ben, London Eye, the London Bridge, … As one of the crew member was giving us crucial details about popular places around the river.
Waving at by-passers on boats and on bridges, we finally arrived at Greenwich where a lot of au pairs visited the market, went to pubs, …
We sat on the grass, talking to each other, discovering each others culture and experience. It was really nice, some exchanged their best tips on how to be a good au pair (even if their is no guide for that).
It was such a special day for us, we are grateful that so many au pairs came and had a great experience.
If you couldn’t come it’s okay there will always be other events!!
I hope you had a great experience during the event and hope to see you at the next BAPAA event , or simply at the next Smartaupairs event!
Smartaupairs is always trying to get it right for families and au pairs! 🙂
