Cultural Exchange

Au Pair Nikee From The Netherlands Adventures Solo

Au pair Nikee, from The Netherlands, spent her au pair year in New Jersey caring for her three host kids. Nikee decided to become an au pair for her gap year before university and was well suited for the job with five years of babysitting experience.

Nikee adventured to Disney, Coney Island, and Washington, DC. Images courtesy of Nikee.

What Nikee didn’t expect to gain from being an au pair was her newfound independence. When she couldn’t find a travel partner to go to Disney, she decided to take a leap and go alone! Nikee made her Disney dreams come true and discovered herself in the process.
