I am British and was once an au pair in America. I worked for a lovely family and was able to have some free time and earn extra money babysitting for other families. I travelled around America a lot, went to some amazing places and met some very interesting people, some of which I am still in touch with to this day. What a fantastic and big adventure it was. What is the biggest, best and most amazing adventure you have ever been on? What made it so incredible and memorable?

I booked a flight to Mexico but it was canceled due to a hurricane. That really upset me and I ended up quickly snapping up a flight to the Maldives. A few months later I hadn't forgotten about wanting an adventure in Central America. I booked a flight to Mexico and off I went. As soon as I got there I got on local buses and made it down as far as I could to the border with Belize. The next day I continued my journey on to Belize City where I got a boat to Caye Caulker. There I did some fantastic snorkeling trips with nurse sharks and sting rays. I took a boat trip to see manatees and then boat was rowed to protect these gentle and amazing creatures. I went to stay inland in a tree house, achieving a childhood dream of mine. Whilst there I went on a caving adventure that involved swimming into the cave and much climbing. I saw Mayan pottery and bones inside. I climbed the Mayan ruins in Tikal National Park. Seeing the sunrise over a Mayan temple was a memorable experience and it was well worth walking through the dark jungle. I took another boat trip back in Belize and saw crocodiles. Looking around some more Mayan ruins I heard the raw of a Jaguar. Wow! I really love to travel and have worked as a children's nanny in Finland when I was 18 and in Australia when I was 20. I think looking after children makes an enjoyable job and it is wonderful to feel part of a foreign community. I am so pleased that you still have many friends that you met whilst being an au pair in America.
