My Au Pair Experience was terrible – I traveled Europe instead

My Au Pair Experience was terrible – I traveled Europe instead


The taxi dropped me off at the Ostello Villa Olmo a youth hostel in Como Italy. Carrying a heavy backpack on my back and a large suitcase which was broken I stumbled into the reception room. I had fled a bad situation with a family that I had Au paired with. I thought things were going well but then they started placing more and more demands on me until it got to the point where I could not even go out with friends. Even that made them angry. I was expected to place their family 1st at all times. I felt like a slave. I had to get out fast. Luckily I did but when I arrived at Ostello in Como I was desperate to find support.

A man greeted me and took care of my luggage as well. Since I had no cash to pay for my stay I had to pay by credit card. Thankfully the lady at the desk accepted credit cards. I paid for one night.

Fear took over my heart but through the pain I was thankful I was safe and that I had a place to lay my head at night. I decided to travel all around Europe instead of staying any day longer with this family.
