How To Preserve Your Travel Memories


Being an Au Pair for one year, learning a new language, meeting people from all over the world, and visiting new countries are exceptional experiences that we would like to never forget


In the digital age we are living in, it’s very easy to take beautiful pictures and videos with our phones and keep those memories forever.


But what can we do with all these memories? 


Below, we’ll share some tips and tricks to keep these memories alive forever!


Travel Boxes:



Trust us: your future self will THANK you!


Inside these boxes, you can put the pictures you took on your trip. 


In addition to the pictures, you can put in the box all the little souvenirs you like to bring back from your travels such as flight or train tickets, stamps, receipts, change postcards, fridge magnets & whatever your like and prefer. 


Ten years after being an Au Pair, you will be able to touch some of the memories that you have saved. 


Travel Journal:



If you enjoy writing, then you should keep and hold a travel journal. 


You can write down everything you’ve experienced during your year as an Au Pair – the good, the bad and the ugly. 


You can write about your travels and friends you met along the way. 


Journaling proves to be very beneficial to mental health too – it’s a win-win situation!


Vlog & Blog:



We live in a techno era, and the best way to fully take advantage of it is by making videos and sharing them on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, TikTok etc. 


This goes for pictures too. You can create albums on Facebook and preserve all your travel memories there. 


 In the videos, you can feel the emotion of the moment even more, and, in a while, you’ll be able to also remember sounds or details that you might have forgotten. 


The best news yet? 


You don’t need to have an expensive camera or to be a professional for that, your smartphone is everything you need to keep memories and videos!  


As an Au Pair abroad, you get the rare opportunity to explore the country as if it is your home. 


Capture these memories as you will most likely never get an opportunity like this again!

      Hi Thembi,

      Thank you for your comment 😊

      There are strict program regulations set by the governments of the countries we work with that we and he Au pair must comply with. Being a certain age is one such visa rule. Being 33 is older than the age restrictions of all the Au Pair programs we offer.

      Wishing you all the best,
