Saturday 24th June 2017- Urban Food Fest
Thank you to all the au pairs who got together at Urban food fest in Shoreditch! ! One of the many events organized by smartaupairs <3 They were all so nice!
We all gathered at Allen Gardens at 3.30 pm. We had different activities in the park to get to know one another. After spending an hour in the park we decided to go to the Urban food fest which is located in Shoreditch. The au pair had different nationalities: Dutch, German, Spanish and French. We even met someone that travelled to 5 different continents. :)
When we arrived at the Food Fest, we had so many choices that we didn't know what to eat: pizza, falafel wrap, fried chicken wrap, bubble waffle, burritos, organic food... Some cocktails were even served in jars.
We talked all afternoon seated around a wood table, talking about the different problems au pairs can go through during their stay, what they like about their placement, but also about cultural differences... So many different topics. Some au pairs are going back home soon - in less then one month and they were quite sad to finish their placement as becoming an au pair is such a beautiful experience.
The good part is, all the au pairs made new friends. They discovered some common points and shared their life with each other.
We did not leave the Urban food fest until 8.00 pm showing how much fun we had just talking together.It was a beautiful experience to meet new people but also a beautiful culinary experience. If you have the time you should definitely go with your au pair friends, it is open every Saturday! - Or you can just join us for our next event. :) Smartaupairs is always trying to get it right for families and au pairs! Hope to see you at our next event so we can all have fun together :D
