Au pair in UK

I really enjoyed my time as an au pair in the UK. I recommend it to everyone. London is a great city with so much to see and do. Whether you like pubs, culture or just strolling down the streets, you will like London.
Only downside is that it is very expensive. I could do the little things I wanted to do in London on my au pair allowance. Luckly, I joined my host family for excursions to the English countryside. I think UK is beautiful despite the weather (a lot of rain and clouds). People are extremely kind and civilized. I got used to the weather and after a while I learnt to ignore it.
I recommend to take some extra money before going to London area as an au pair. I think it is a good idea to take some extra money anywhere if you will be an au pair in a foreign country.
