Photo Competition Winner Announced!

The annual Smartaupairs photo competition was opened at the end of May, when many au pairs joined us for the BAPAA Boat Trip.

Since then, we have received a number of lovely photos and it’s been really difficult to choose a winner! Finally, we selected Marlijn from the Netherlands who will receive a £20 Amazon voucher.

Here’s what Marlijn said about her photo:

We are 5 Dutch girls and on 27th April we celebrate ‘Koningsdag’ (Kingsday) in The Netherlands and this is a BIG event. This used to be ‘Koninginnedag’ (Queensday) but when our queen abdicated we changed it. We had to miss this huge event in the Netherlands but luckily the Dutch people weren’t forgotten in The UK so we had a great night ! We even went in the tube like this, a lot of English people were looking like : ‘what is this’ haha ! We had a lot of fun 🙂

Thank you to everyone who sent a photo to us – here are some more of our favourites!

BAPAA Au Pair Boat Trip 2013

Smartaupairs attended the annual BAPAA boat trip in London last Sunday, along with hundreds of au pairs placed all over the UK.

Despite the typical English weather, a great time was had by all!

The boat departed from Festival Pier at 11am and after a two hour trip past Big Ben, the London Eye, Tower Bridge and other beautiful historical buildings and famous bridges, arrived in Greenwich.

We visited Greenwich Market and had some lunch next to the river.

We love attending this fabulous event and know that it is a great opportunity for au pairs to make lifelong friends.

Please see below some photos from the day!
