Au pair Evelina in Finland

Hey, hey! On July 29, 2011 I sat on the flight from Luleå to Porvoo, Finland. It was my birthday. What I did not know was that my "new" family would be there with balloons and a really warm welcome. When we got home, I calmed my nerves, I was standing in the hall and was waiting for the green light to go in!

In the kitchen there was a freshly baked cake and gifts, in the package I got was a cozy blanket, but the funny thing was that when I rolled it out to check on it .. a little note fell down. At first I thought it was something that belonged to the blanket ... but it was a ticket to Rihanna's concert - On the beach in Helsinki …

Getting tears the first day in front of people you have never met before was strange but I was so happy and now, two months later, I still really enjoy my time here. This was my story and I hope I'll get more experience soon! Now I know what they mean, when other au pairs say: "the kids are testing me".  :D Hugs Evelina
