New video: Why au pair Lisa is in step with her Spanish host family
In March 2011, the Spanish host family Rosa María Almendros created the one millionth profile on Aupair World. For this reason, we went to visit the family and their Austrian au pair Lisa in Simancas. We even brought our camera along to capture the experience.
... host family Almendros and her au pair Lisa in Spain.
After we called host mum Rosa to congratulate her, we from Aupair World agreed that we would get to know our one millionth user personnally.
Visit with camcorder in hand
No sooner said than done! Two months later, in May, an Aupair World team left Germany and travelled to Simancas near Valladolid, situated in central Spain. The objective was to visit the host parents Rosa and Israel with her daughters Izíar and Edurne and their au pair Lisa. The team brought along a camcorder and many questions. What is a typical day like with the Almendros family? What are Lisa's experiences in her host country Spain?
An impressive living together
We had nice chats with Lisa and her host family, ate Paella and saw a great deal of Valladolid and Simancas. We accompanied Lisa throughout a whole day, while she was attending her duties, and we quickly came to the conclusion that all those involved did their best to make the au pair stay as enchriching as possible for everyone. This kind of living together inspired us to shoot a video as we wanted to share this fantastic experience.
Scenes of Lisa's au pair stay in four languages
Of course, back in Germany, each of us had to get back to the usual tasks. But step by step, the new video "Aupair World visits ..." came into being. Thanks to our translators, the nine minutes long video is available in four languages. Have fun watching it!
