We always hear that I was an Au Pair in Germany, France, US and so many other western countries, but we do not hear much about I was an Au Pair in Turkey. However, there's a great opportunity that you are missing which offers a unique and enriching experience - Turkey. In this blog post, let's explore various advantages of being an au pair in this vibrant, culturally rich country.
Turkey serves as an ideal location for cultural immersion and a melting pot. As an au pair, first you will have the opportunity to learn Turkish, a language with rich historical roots and lately many people are willing to learn from all around the world. You will also understand the country's specific customs and traditions. From the crowded bazaars to the inspiring architecture like the Hagia Sophia, Suleymaniye Mosque, Maiden Tower and of course the Blue Mosque, Turkey is a cultural experience like no other. This is not finishing only with Istanbul, many families they have summer houses in other cities where you can visit these cities as well with them such as; Bodrum, Çeşme, Antalya, Kuşadası, Datça and many others...
Compared to many Western and other countries, the cost of living in Turkey is lower than the other countries we have mentioned above such as France, UK, US, Canada, Germany and many others. This economical advantage allows au pairs to save more of their earnings or spend a little extra exploring the country's diverse landscapes and cities. You will have a big chance to save enough money to get a new brand car maybe when you are back to your own country after a year.
