Tamara Raab-Nesterer

Tamara's au pair year in Washington DC, VA, United States

21 October 2016

My rematch ended on Thursday morning and the result is: I didn't find a new family and I'm going home. Better said I'm sitting at the airport right know and wait for my flight home (which is fucking late). I'm sad to leave the US but I'm also looking forward to go back home and see my family and friends again ๐Ÿ˜ However, I didn't lose anything and I don't regret anything. It just shouldn't have been. The au pair life isn't my thing. Something else is. So goodbye USA โœˆ next stop Austria ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡น but I'm coming back one day ๐Ÿ˜‰

For those who doesn't know: I'm living with an LCC since Saturday because I had to move out of my ex host familys house because their new au pair was able to arrive earlier. Sounds even worse than it is: I don't have to work there anymore and I can focus on rematch now! :) ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Today Mayka (the LCC I'm living with) took me to the "crackhouse" alias Krispy Kreme ๐Ÿ˜…๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿฉ They have the best doghnuts EVER ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ #byebyebikinibody #toomuchsugar #16oct16 ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ
Yesterday we went to DC to the korean war memorial because the LCCs husbands grandfather is a veteran ๐Ÿ’‚ Big T even said that one of the statues shows him๐Ÿ˜ฑ americans are really obsessed with their veterans- they honor them, take pictures with them and applaud to them. Kind of strange for austrian people to honor an ex soldier like a hero but hey it's america! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ and in the evening we came to the LCCs aunt-in-laws house in National Habour where we ride on the carousel ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ ๐ŸŽก #15oct16

The awkward moment when you pick up your 3 years old hostchild and a mother asks you: Are you his mother?? Seriously. Do I look like a mother? I'm 19.

First movie at an american cinema: Bridget Jones's Baby ๐Ÿ˜ Although I struggled with understanding some parts I got the content: Bridget Jones got pregnant. She doesn't know who's the father and in the end she marries her big love of her life (because her other big love died in the beginning) who is also the father of her son ๐Ÿ˜‚โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ #lovestory #firstbridgetjonesmovie #23sep16

Today the Heidelberg Pastry had an open house where we went to ๐Ÿž๐Ÿช๐Ÿซ๐Ÿฉ we visited the factory, the kids could help making some pastry and -of course- you could taste the freshly baked things ๐Ÿ˜ they say it's German but donuts and chocolate-chip-cookies aren't really German ๐Ÿ˜… but the greatest thing was to eat German bread again (american bread is either too sweet or toast bread) ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡น #ilovedtheladywiththeaccordion #18sep16
