Welcome to this brand-new WordPress blog! My name is Roos (pronunciation: Rose), and I will be living an entirely different life beginning July 1st. Well, how did this happen? Let’s start at the beginning: last autumn I visited London with my parents and came in contact with the family my mum was an au pair for, when she was 19 (the children she used to babysit are now grown men and have children themselves). I kept contact and lucky for me, they were in search of an au pair for their two little boys.
Consequently, I just graduated from High School (in the Netherlands) and the next six months I will be living as an au pair with this lovely family in London, England. I take a great interest in the United Kingdom and I absolutely love the capital, so you can imagine my excitement.
Apart from that I really like the fact that I will not have to focus on studying and school this year, but plainly focus on life; integrating in this great family, explore and hopefully integrate in the British culture. I am utterly excited to try to make it on my own in a different country!
That brings me back to this blog; here I will write about my experiences and regularly post photos I’ve taken with my SLR. Living (a) London Life will chiefly be written for my friends and family back home, but naturally anyone is most welcome on this blog if they are interested in my stories.
Very important remark:
A colossal thank you to my good friend Roselinde Bon, an incredibly talented girl that made the design for Living a London Life. Visit her own WordPress blog (click!), you will not regret it!
