Angelica, au pair from Colombia
"I love Washington because it has the most amazing views I have ever seen in my life, and every day you had the opportunity to see the sunrise and sunset and that’s pretty amazing."
Elisabeth au pair from France
"About the food, just one word: marvelous. One of the traditional dishes is salmon. I love salmon and I’ve to say that I had the best salmons of my life in the state of Washington. I’m even looking forward to go back there and just to have a piece of salmon… De-li-cious."
Victoria, au pair from Sweden
"Living in Washington made me realize that I am an outdoorsy person and I have the most joy in activities you do outside. Like going for a hike in the lush green forests or going kayaking at the San Juan Islands (if you’re lucky enough you might see some dolphins!)."
