Demi Au Pair Programme – “One of the Best Times in My Life”

My name is Mario, I am from Austria and I spent 14 weeks studying English on the demi au pair programme. I really have to say that the stay as a demi was one of the best times in my life. I had a great time with my lovely host family and it was a pleasure studying at Campbell in Wellington.

Wellington is such a lovely city with so many opportunities to celebrate your free time. A lot of live music, a lot of art, heaps of cool bars and cafés and the most important thing >> nice and friendly people!

I made a short clip below for the video contest #wellymyway during my time in Wellington. Everybody had to create a clip how he sees Wellington. Good question, how do I see Wellington?

  • Coffee
  • Wind
  • Music
  • Art
  • Cool people

I enjoyed exploring the city, especially seeing the Chinese New Year parade and going to the Newtown Festival, and the outdoors around Wellington. I did a biketrip next to the sea in Eastbourne, walked on the beach in Petone and Waikanae, and went up close to seals in Cape Palliser.

I posted a few shots of my great stay in New Zealand on my flickr page, including when I explored both North Island and South Island starting from the hot water beach in the Coromandel, Hobbiton, Huka Falls and all the way down to Mount Cook and Milford Sound. I will never ever forget this amazing time with all those lovely people!

I always wanted to have a beautiful card of New Zealand. I never found anything I was looking for so I have decided to make my own map. Here it is ?

I am totally sure that you will not regret your stay in New Zealand. You will learn a lot for your future and you will make many friends from different countries.
