I had the time of my life in Iceland and I'm so happy that Ninukot made this possible! Iceland is on my mind constantly, I've made unforgettable memories and I can't wait to come back to visit my family and improve my icelandic skills:)

Being an Au Pair is one of the best experiences you can make in life! You learn a lot about the culture and how other families live. I met some new friends all over the world and got better in communicate with others. Au Pair life teaches you to do things all by yourself and helps you to understand the adulthood more!

You have a question!
