London 1998

In 1998 I spent a summer working as Au-Pair in Balham, London, U.K., which is close to Clapham. All in all it took me about 20 minutes to get to the city center by bike.
On weekends and after the summer holidays (when my work was done) I went on several trips throughout the U.K. (and a bit of France).

What else should be the first picture of London than Big Ben?

Côte d’Azur

For the summer holidays my London host family went to stay with some friends of the family in St. Rafael (near St.Tropez) in the South of France - of course they needed to take their au pair along. What can I say? We had a great time!



On my way back to Berlin I passed by Paris for the first time in my life!.
