Letter from previous au-pair
it May Concern,
been with my host family for one year as a motherís help. During this
time I have seen and met many new places and people.
on a island was hard at first as the town Portoferraio reminded me a lot
of my home in Australia. As the weeks went by I come to love my new home
for all its unique and special features. From the historical sights or
just watching the boats dock. While I have been with Angela and Fabio I
have travelled to the mainland and to a few of the many towns located on
the island. Including Cala Nova where the summer house is located in a
secluded tranquil area close to the beach.
and Fabio were always ready to help and answer my many questions about
the Italian language and culture. They were also very patient and
somewhat amused by my many everyday queries and observations. Camilla
and Filippo are both happy active children that I have thoroughly
enjoyed talking to and playing with. Camilla is a bright and cheerful
young girl with a lively imagination and a flair for dancing. Filippo is
a very happy baby and extremely active with his crawling. Both Camilla
and Filippo will make me smile no matter how frazzled or distracted I
am. Penny and Morgan the dogs are very much part of the family and I
have come to respect each of there very different personalities.
have always been filled with things to do. From general cleaning and
ironing, helping and playing with Camilla and Filippo, to my daily walks
with the two dogs Penny and Morgan. Each day always brought something
new to do and see, and I have learnt many new things while I have had
the opportunity to be here.
I have had an extremely enjoyable and educational experience whole I
have worked for Angela and Fabio and would recommend both the place and
family to anyone looking for something new and fun.
